Diversity, Equity, Inclusion, and Belonging

How we are sparking change from within Brightly

At Brightly, we believe diversity, equity, inclusion, and belonging (DEIB) are the building blocks for an intentional approach to transformative business and culture. We aim to create a space where colleagues and clients feel safe bringing their authentic selves to the table with innovative thoughts, diverse perspectives, and unique skills welcomed and encouraged. 

As a global technology company, we recognize our responsibility to show up as leaders in the DEIB space not just as a value, but as a commitment. We strive for all colleagues and clients to be a part and not apart.
Here are the ways we're super-charging DEIB at Brightly: 

  • Expanding our DEIB messaging through internal and external communications channels
  • Enhancing our leadership toolkit with educational training programs focused on highlighting important aspects of DEIB from a leadership perspective  
  • Providing space for colleagues to have thoughtful dialogue around topics that expand the principles of DEIB with bi-monthly virtual conversation sessions 
  • Building a diverse talent base through recruitment, including creating an intern to full-time talent pipeline through partnerships with minority-serving institutions and organizations
  • Energizing Brightly Employee Resource Groups

A Message from Our DEIB Specialist
