Domo recognized by Women Tech Council for its impactful measures to transform technology culture
SILICON SLOPES, Utah, April 08, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Domo (Nasdaq: DOMO) today announced it has been recognized on the Women Tech Council’s 2019 Shatter List for actively employing measures to help break the glass ceiling for women in technology. Domo is among 46 companies recognized based on the development and successful implementation of measures that create gender-inclusive cultures where women can contribute and succeed.
“Breaking the glass ceiling for women in technology requires companies to move beyond single-sided efforts to organization-wide solutions that actively create gender-inclusive teams and environments,” said Cydni Tetro, president of Women Tech Council. “The programs and practices these companies are building and implementing are creating this type of impact for those in their organization, and helping advance women in technology across the entire sector.”
In making the list, Domo was evaluated and scored against hundreds of technology companies on executive engagement, company programming, community investment and women’s or D&I groups. All data was gathered from 10 secondary data sets and required active demonstration of visible activities at all levels of the company showing commitment and progress in these four areas.
Among these criteria, Domo was recognized for its commitment to equal pay and its efforts to hire more female executives. In 2017, Domo took the ParityPledge, committing to interview and consider at least one qualified woman for every open role, VP and higher, including the C-Suite and board. Domo is also involved in developing the next generation of tech talent through its active support of programs such as SheTech and those that teach kids to code.
“Domo is honored to be on this list with other Silicon Slopes companies that are making strides to give women equal footing in the technology industry,” said Josh James, founder and CEO of Domo. “We want to attract and retain the best talent, and we continue to evaluate and evolve our recruiting and hiring efforts, as well as workforce benefits, trainings and programs to help us in that effort. This is part of our commitment to creating a world-class diverse and inclusive workplace.”
