Episode 27: Diversity, Equity and Inclusion at OST

Ten Thousand Feet Podcast Episode 27

At OST, we often talk about being a people-first organization. We value our employees and our families so much that it’s our foremost company value: Honor our people and their families first, clients second, and the rest will fall into place.

OST’s Diversity, Equity and Inclusion (DEI) Committee exists to help OST deliver on that mission for all employees, especially those who haven’t traditionally been well represented in the technology industry.

In this episode of the podcast, we talk with Kiran Sood Patel, Hannah Staal and David VandeWaa (core members of the DEI Committee) about what initiatives they have underway and how they’re contributing to the growing movement toward racial justice in our country.

In the episode, Kiran reads OST’s Statement on Diversity that appears on all of OST’s job postings and on our company page. Here it is in entirety:

You matter! Your experiences matter, your journey with OST matters, and your success matters. People drive all our achievements, and we know that taking care of each other takes care of everything else. This is why we strive to promote diversity, equity and inclusion within our company, the work we do and our communities. We’ll surely face challenges along the way. And we’ll all continually learn from them to build a caring culture true to our guiding principles: honor, delight, serve, embrace, and learn.

We don’t take this commitment lightly, and we will continue to share more about how OST continues to grow and evolve.
