Statement from Anuradha Mayer, Chief People Officer
Chief People Officer
We are experiencing a transformational time, in the workplace and in society, that demands agile thinking, new combinations of skills and experiences, a higher level of collaboration, and a growth mindset culture. We know that a heterogeneous workforce benefits all of us: Inclusive and diverse teams produce original ideas, increase creativity, and are more productive. Drawing strength from our differences leads to an engaging employee experience for our people and innovative breakthroughs for our customers. It is at the heart of what we do.
The Wind River® commitment to diversity and inclusion is a priority and a strategic imperative, crucial to capturing the opportunities that matter most to our employees, to our customers, to our communities, and to me personally. And I am proud to say that our people at every level of the company are taking ownership for creating an inclusive and varied culture.
As an organization, we have made progress toward this goal. Now we’re accelerating our efforts to create an even more eclectic and inclusive company with aggressive diversity targets.
These are not just words for Wind River; our aim can only be achieved by bringing forward a truly diverse and inclusive workforce. It is core to our culture and the way we do business, and critical to our future success.
Realizing Each Whole, Unique Self
We are open to learning about our biases and changing our behaviors so we can tap into the power of everyone at Wind River. We don’t just value differences; we seek them out and celebrate them. And, as a result, we are each able to bring our authentic and unique self to Wind River.
- Create and maintain a heterogeneous workforce
- Build a culture of belonging anchored in mutual trust and respect and driven by deep listening
- Partner with vendors, suppliers, partners, and customers to dismantle barriers and provide equitable access for talent regardless of background
Diversity and respect are core to who we are and how we work.
Diversity at a Glance
Today, women make up 23% of our workforce and 25% of leadership. Thirty-four percent of our workforce and 31% of our leaders are ethnically diverse. Together, women and ethnically diverse people make up 47% of our employee population. By executing on our DEI&B strategy and goals, our aspiration is to have a 50% diverse workforce by the end of 2023.
