Diversity at Redox
The goal we’ve set out to achieve is a lofty one: to eliminate the healthcare interoperability problem. That’s why we need the best minds working together. The brightest collaborators. The most passionate problem solvers. We know we can’t do this if we’re all alike. It’s going to take a special team that’s committed to welcoming each others’ ideas so we can work well together.
We know the goals we set for Redox aren’t easy, but that just inspires us to work harder and more creatively to reach them anyway. We survey our team and track progress to make sure we are living up to our intentions.
In January of 2019, we set our first company diversity goal around gender balance. We were excited to work towards a more balanced team. By the end of 2019, we grew our non-male identifying Redoxers from 23 to 38%. We expanded our diversity goals in 2020 to include ethnic minority and age distribution balance. We experienced a hiring freeze in 2020 as a result of the pandemic, which significantly slowed our progress toward these goals. Our numbers today tell us that there’s much more work to be done, and now that we’re back in hiring mode we’re eager to move full steam ahead. In 2022 we are investing in our data by making sure we expand the diversity of our candidate pipelines and fully understand the hiring decisions we make from there. We’re committed to building a diverse community of Redoxers at every level to help contribute to this work alongside a dedicated DEI Leader to help guide our efforts.
