A small insight into this Inspiring Workplace…
‘Broadvoice’s DEI Council is committed to representing and reflecting the unique experiences, perspectives and viewpoints of our people, partners, and the communities we serve.’
‘We recognize that there are inequalities and racial injustices that still exist within our country. In efforts to foster a diverse team and cultivate an inclusive workplace environment where people of all backgrounds can thrive, we started an internal initiative called the DEI Council in 2021. The Council is comprised of a voluntary committee of Broadvoice employees from various parts of the organization. Broadvoice’s DEI Council is committed to representing and reflecting the unique experiences, perspectives and viewpoints of our people, partners, and the communities we serve. We strive to encourage diversity, achieve equity, and foster inclusion for all. This empowers us to reach our full potential, fueling innovation and connection with employees, including our customers and the communities we serve, regardless of race, color, sexual orientation, sex, gender identity, marital status, religion, age, or ethnicity origin.
