Diversity and Inclusion in Tech

The highest rates of innovation come from teams with the widest range of backgrounds and viewpoints

Impact understands that creating a diverse workforce will foster an environment of different ideas, perspectives, and innovations. Building a team that flourishes with unique identities, backgrounds, and points of view is important to us. We strive every day to shape a culture focused on empowerment, inclusion, and equity to not only support our employees, but be an example within our industry.

We believe that when we celebrate our differences, we can create a better Impact.

 

Job Opportunities Should Be Available to Anyone Who Can Be Great at Them

At Impact, we know that great ideas come from people who think differently collaborating together. That’s why it’s crucial to not just accept all kinds of people, but seek out diversity and inclusion in tech-centric, strategic, and creative roles: to help everyone grow together with ongoing learning and development. Equality of opportunity isn’t enough — Impact aims for true equity. By embracing all perspectives, our whole company will be a stronger, more interesting, and more exciting place to work.
