To meet our mission, we need people of all backgrounds, from all lived experiences, and with all different perspectives working together. As we scale and grow, we know our Pendozers will be key to our success in this journey. This is why we are constantly working to build a culture where Pendozers can be authentic, do their best work, and thrive together. We know that diversity coupled with a truly inclusive culture–where employees can bring their whole selves and perspectives–can unlock innovation, creativity, and bold ideas.

Affinity groups at Pendo

Employees who are free to bring their whole selves to work are more productive and innovative, which benefits the entire company. Employee-led affinity groups provide a welcoming and safe space for conversation, education, and mentorship. They also help galvanize Pendo within our communities.

Women of Pendo

Women of Pendo

The Women of Pendo affinity group facilitates gender diversity at Pendo by raising the visibility of women in the workforce, researching and recommending solutions to issues affecting women; and providing opportunities for women to develop leadership skills and broaden their network.

Gender, Sexual, and Romantic Minorities

“MOSAIC has given us the ability to elevate our conversations around diversity, equity, and inclusion to the exec-level and be able to execute our ideas for a more inclusive workplace. MOSAIC is a safe space for us to have open conversations on difficult topics and to navigate the workplace as underrepresented minorities.”

Neurodiversity

The Neurodiversity affinity group’s mission is to help Pendozers with ADHD, ASD, or other neurological differences be accepted, and thrive at Pendo. This group works to provide mentorship, guidance, and support for ND individuals and for parents, loved ones, and caregivers of ND family members.

 
quote

“The concept of neurodiversity is still new to many people, and many common business practices can be inadvertently exclusionary or restrictive to ND individuals. It is important to us that all of our ND voices are heard and that different neurotypes are understood so that we can all contribute, bring our whole selves to work, and share our unique perspectives.”

Femmegineers

Femmegineers
