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 to from 23 to 38%. We expanded our Diversity goals in 2020 to include Ethnic Minority and Age Distribution balance. We set goals for both of these for 2020 and beyond.
Due to COVID-19, we have made the difficult decision to hold on hiring for the foreseeable future. This means we won’t be in a position to make much progress towards our Diversity goals. So we’re sharing our Current Diversity stats with you here with the intent to be transparent. We’ll get back to hiring, and when we do, we’ll publish our updated Diversity goals.
