Our dynamic staff includes representation from many different backgrounds: more than 70% of our staff identify as BIPOC, 15% of our staff are alumni of our own training, and the vast majority live in the communities where we operate. Per Scholas employs some of the most talented and interesting people you will meet—we are artists, chefs and musicians, gamers and athletes, parents of children both furry and not. We practice intentional inclusion and are continuously reflecting and revisioning how we may lead by example with our own equitable work environment and by actively practicing our values everyday.
Our work goes beyond the classroom, led by our Diverse by Design (DxD) initiative, sponsored by Chubb, Comcast NBCUniversal, EY, Google, JPMorgan Chase & Co., the NFL Foundation, and OneTen. DxD promotes solutions-driven conversations about diversity, equity, and inclusion within the tech sector. We also produce meaningful content that empowers c-suite leaders to make both valuable and socially impactful decisions for their organizations and provide access to sophisticated customized training and talent sourcing solutions to meet companies’ talent demands, while transforming the diversity landscape of their organizations.
