What We Believe

IdeaScale believes in the power of transformative ideas. Our mission is to build communities who can work together to solve our most challenging problems and by bringing in a greater variety of voices we will build better businesses, institutions, and societies.

How do we do that?

We break down the barriers that separate us: departmental, cultural, geographical and create a space where any voice can thrive. We commit to this in our company, in our software, and in the communities in which we serve.

IdeaScale is building a diverse and inclusive team that fosters an environment where each teammate feels empowered to bring their unique differences to work and achieve their full innovative potential. By investing in this diverse team at home, we hope to help our customers do the same as we contribute to the most innovative project of all: the equitable future of work for everyone.

What we Do

Diversity Equity and Inclusion Committee

Every month our team meets to discuss how we can help our company (and others) become more inclusive. 

Tech for Inclusion Scholarship

IdeaScale is committed to bridging the opportunity gap in the technology sector. For that reason, we offer a combination scholarship-internship program for individuals who are looking to grow their career in product management, user experience, or digital marketing, but haven’t received some of the opportunities of their peers. Candidates can apply here. 

Monthly Lunch n’ Learns

Progress means curiosity and continuous learning. IdeaScale hosts monthly lunch n’ learns with guest speakers in order to help us develop greater empathy and more comprehensive solutions. 

Time Off for Action

IdeaScale offers time off to take action on important issues. This is encouraged organically through IdeaScale’s RTO policy, but also in the wake of George Floyd’s death the company ceased all non-essential activity and instead gave employees back that time to take action: to read, learn, discuss, protest or take time to reflect with family.

Donations to DEI Nonprofits

When possible, IdeaScale donates money to causes that further diversity, equity, and inclusion – particularly to those organizations that help to close the opportunity gap in the tech sector. For example, last year IdeaScale donated to the excellent organization, Black Girls Code.

Resources for Our Customers

IdeaScale wants to help our customers achieve their DEI goals, as well. For this reason, we’ve provided a workbook that offers some guidance to leaders who want to innovate around the subject of diversity, equity, and inclusion.
