Best Tech Workplace for Diversity (Silicon Valley) |A healthy and diverse workplace starts with a strong culture. At Drobo, we learned the hard way that when you don’t put culture first, the whole company suffers. For this reason, we implemented five core values that drive how we work. These core values are Customer-Centricity; Passion and Pride; Do More with Less; Ownership & Delivering Results; and Teamwork & Family Spirit. Over 10 years ago, we were the classic Silicon Valley company that had a culture of working too hard, being brash, and not treating our employees well. We experienced first hand how toxic our culture was when we had to be split off from our parent company. That turnaround story is still being written, but at the core of it, is how our the core values came about. The cultural shift started with Drobo’s CEO, Mihir Shah.

He encourages us to talk to him about our issues and he's dealt with everything from issues funding proposed research projects to the state of the nasty bathroom on the third floor of this building that's never been cleaned. He sat with me recently as he explained that he knew I ran a blog and could write well, so would I be interested in writing longer, Nat-Geo type stories about our work at the center? He thought our social media presence wasn't enough and that there's so much more to share with the public about what NASA is up to. I agree, and he gave me full reign to write from the heart and he promised to be involved with that project. He's organizing his contacts with major magazines & news sources to get our work out there. In an attempt to get the larger workforce as excited about outreach as he is, he started a "scientist of the month" nomination on the NASA Ames SS division website - our website - and he volunteered to go first.

Best Tech Workplace for Diversity (Silicon Valley)| HP has long been committed to diversity and creating an inclusive environment where all voices and perspectives are heard, valued, and respected. It’s embedded in our values and our culture – The HP Way. Innovation at HP springs from teams of individuals collaborating and contributing varied perspectives, knowledge, and experience to advance how the world works and lives. We are driven to create products that work for everyone, everywhere. Diverse teams create transformative solutions that better serve our customers and the communities where we work and live. To find, develop, and keep the very best people, we embrace and celebrate difference. Leadership: When Hewlett-Packard Co. separated into two new independent, publicly traded companies in November 2015 (creating Hewlett Packard Enterprise and HP Inc.), Chief Human Resources Officer Tracy Keogh saw an opportunity to model HP’s commitment to diversity and inclusion at the highest levels of the company. This started with creating one of the most diverse Board of Directors in the tech industry, an intentional, nine-month process that required a commitment from both CEOs and existing board members, pressure on the search firm to look broadly for diverse candidates, and strategic partnerships with affinity groups to reach a more diverse pool of candidates. It continued with assembling an Executive Leadership Team representing different genders, nationalities, and experiences. HP’s executive leadership team is 27% minority and 27% women. Women hold the roles of Chief Human Resources Officer, Chief Legal Officer & General Counsel, Chief Communications Officer, and interim Chief Operating Officer. In June 2017, Dion Weisler, HP President and CEO, took a pledge as part of the CEO Action for Diversity & Inclusion on behalf of HP. This sign of public support has set the tone of our values and priorities for our leadership, employees, partners and customers.

These executives are diveristy thought leaders and advocates who are establishing strategic priorities and building teams at the business and local levels to drive progress. Across the company, diversity oversight spans our business groups who manage this via diversity councils, task force efforts and PMO’s. Strategy: Through our BIG strategy (Belong, Innovate, Grow), we are seeding the importance of diverse backgrounds, perspectives, and experiences across the company and working to minimize bias in our systems, processes, and programs – from the talent we seek to hire, to the ways we develop and grow our talent, to how we engage, communicate, and reward.
