The belief that diversity drives innovation is one of the keys to ADP’s technology development strategy. In keeping with this belief, ADP is partnering with the Anita Borg Institute (ABI) supporting women in technology. ABI connects, inspires, and guides women technologists and organizations that view technology innovation as a strategic imperative.
The impressive reach and impact of ABI will give ADP a greater opportunity to attract women technologists to the company, while supporting the professional development and engagement of current female associates. The partnership will also offer the opportunity to create advanced strategies and share best practices with other like-minded organizations during ABI’s partner collaboration meetings and technical executive forums.
“Increasing gender diversity in our technology group will help us continue to bring different creative perspectives to our product development. It will also help ensure we attract the best possible talent to our teams,” said Corporate Vice President, Stuart Sackman, who leads ADP’s global product and technology efforts. “We will engage with ABI throughout the year on efforts to advance not only our diverse culture at ADP, but to support the goal of increasing gender diversity in the technology industry as a whole.”
In addition to participating in ABI global events and programs throughout 2016, ADP will also be sponsoring the ABI Women of Vision Awards and Banquet on May 5th.
“Promoting diversity is a core value for ADP and integral to our talent strategy,” said ADP Chief Diversity and Corporate Social Responsibility Officer, Rita Mitjans. “Our partnership with ABI will help us ensure ADP is a place where women technologists can thrive at all levels.”
