We are intentionally investing in making our culture a strategic advantage, and making sure people feel connected and supported even if we are remote. Key learnings from our employees have demonstrated that in-person interactions matter, and there is an opportunity for additional remote connection forums. We speak about culture in the same breath as DEI, and truly believe the key to a thriving company culture is to not treat DEI as a silo, but to infuse it into the identity of the company culture.
