How We’re Taking Action
Words without action fall short of progress. Here are a few of the initiatives we have implemented at AlertMedia to promote diversity, equity, and inclusion.
- Inclusive Parental LeaveIndividual journeys to parenthood are very different. All employees—regardless of gender or family type—are eligible for our paid parental leave program.
- Giveback CommitmentThrough both financial donations and paid volunteer time, we support organizations that help underserved and underrepresented members of our community.
- Benchmarking and TrainingWe routinely benchmark our progress toward a more inclusive workplace, using the results to enhance our diversity and unconscious bias training programs.
