Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion

We are creating a Terakeet for every kind of future.

A Terakeet where everyone feels like they belong. Follow along with us as we strive towards progress and do our small part to make technology a truly equitable industry.

Employee Engagement

Terakeet is a company made up of truly remarkable and dedicated individuals. As we took a top-down approach to diversifying our company, many team members expressed their interest in being part of the solution. Together, they created a growing number of grassroots, internal identity groups that meet up to discuss progress, address inequities at the employee-level, and to keep everyone accountable to our stated goals and initiatives. In addition, these groups have designated spaces in our inter-office communication platforms where they can connect whenever they want.

Our Goals

In the wake of the nationwide protests and marches that occurred in the summer of 2020, we recognized we needed to shift our approach to diversity within our organization, so we began taking major steps to become a more inclusive, equitable, and diverse company and community partner. In an effort to be fully transparent, we have outlined some of the crucial initiatives we took on as an organization, and what our progress has been towards those initiatives.

Goal 1:

Diversity Consulting

We are hiring a diversity consulting firm to audit our practices and provide a strategy for improvement across departments, beginning with bias reduction within our hiring and recruiting teams, as well as a deep dive into improving communication and management styles.

Goal 2:

Diversity Education

Complete a number of staff trainings on diversity, equity, and inclusion.

Goal 3:

Goal 4:

Community Partnerships

Volunteer the expertise of our staff to high-impact partnerships in our community.

Our Mission

Our business goals are tied to a larger mission: to be equitable throughout our organization. This mission is woven into the DNA of who we are as a company.

Cultivating a diverse and inclusive workforce is a top priority for Terakeet. We recognize that the unique perspectives and experiences of a diverse workforce lead to a more dynamic and innovative team culture that allows our people to expand their capabilities and grow their careers.

Terakeet Apprenticeship Program

The Terakeet Apprenticeship Program was launched in 2020. The goal of the program is to help CNY locals bypass barriers to entry that prevent many without industry connections from entering into the marketing and tech workforces. We started with four apprentices and quickly grew from there. To learn more about the Apprenticeship Program, you can visit our landing page. Be sure to join our email list so you’re the first to know when we open up our next Apprenticeship Program slots!
