Rubrik Extends Commitment to Progress with The WIT Network
Continuing their support of The WIT Network community, Rubrik has joined our team of corporate sponsors.
An organization striving for employee inclusion
Rubrik’s vision is to build and sustain a diverse, equitable, and inclusive organization where employees are growing, developing, and actively contributing to Rubrik’s and their own success by bringing their best, most authentic selves to work every day."
"Our talent is our first priority at Rubrik. Our environment should amplify everyone's voice and create a culture where all employees feel they belong and can truly do their best work. This ultimately is how we help Rubrik succeed and meet the expectation of our employees and customers alike," said Rhys Hughes, Vice President, Global Talent. "We have work to do, but I’m excited about the partnership and investment we’re making in Women in Tech to help us become the company we want to be."
Over time, Rubrik has steadily increased its hiring of women and people from underrepresented communities and supported more diversity in senior-leader positions. The company also invests in creating a more inclusive environment through employee-led resource groups (ERGs), anti-racism and allyship workshops, and manager development focused on inclusive teams. To strengthen this work, Rubrik hired its first Director of Global People Development and Diversity, Equity & Inclusion (DEI) and will soon have a new head of DEI. This new team will build a strategy focused on hiring diverse talent and creating an inclusive culture where employees feel like they belong, can grow in their careers, and have opportunities to do meaningful work.
A journey for progress
Rubrik continues to make progress in a variety of areas, from improved diversity hiring, engaged and growing ERGs, and employee and leadership development focused on building more inclusive teams. The Women@Rubrik ERG drives awareness and engagement through events, such as International Women’s Day, speakers and fireside chats with women leaders, as well as programs, such as global mentoring groups. There is also a women’s ERG within engineering focused on supporting women in technical roles at Rubrik. Rubrik knows that there is more to do to make the technology industry more diverse and inclusive, but it looks forward to investing in resources and programs to drive progress in this area. The Women@Rubrik ERG leaders are part of the company’s DEI Council and collaborate closely with Rubrik’s other ERG leaders to support DEI and intersectionality across the company.
