SALT LAKE CITY, March 5, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- In honor of International Women's Day, Instructure today announced it has once again been named on the Women Tech Council (WTC) 2020 Shatter List, a recognition of companies with active measures that help break the glass ceiling for women in technology. Each of the companies on the 2020 list was chosen based on its development and successful implementation of measures that create gender-inclusive cultures where women can contribute and succeed.
"The Shatter List is designed to measure the policies, practices, and organizations that are creating real impact for women in tech," said Cydni Tetro, president of WTC. "These organization-wide, holistic solutions create gender-inclusive environments and teams that make an impact not only for those within an organization but throughout the technology community by helping advance women across the entire sector."
The Shatter List was developed as part of WTC's diversity and inclusion program to help build high-performing environments where men and women can succeed and drive company success. To make the Shatter List, Instructure was evaluated and scored against hundreds of technology companies on four key criteria: executive engagement, company programming, community investment, and women's or D&I groups. Each named company was required to demonstrate active, visible activities at all company levels showing commitment and progress in these four areas.
"At Instructure, we bring diversity and inclusion together through our people and programs to create workplaces where people truly belong and can perform at their best," said Marta DeBellis, CMO at Instructure. "We appreciate the work of the Women Tech Council and will continue our efforts to make Instructure a place where people can bring their whole selves to work."
Among these criteria, Instructure was especially recognized for its global rollout of a customized inclusion training program, its mentorship program, and its work with community partners to encourage women to thrive in careers in tech.
