As we celebrate Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. on January 16, his life and legacy as a Civil Rights Leader remains so important to highlight as we start 2023. With so many things that have been accomplished in racial and social justice movements, there is still a global journey towards equality for all.
This day is a meaningful opportunity to reflect on what it means to drive positive change through the power of connection – whether it’s in our local communities, with family and friends or in our workplaces. For Dr. King, and all those who worked alongside him, their commitment to equality and human rights became another moment in the world in how individuals can empower the collective.
At Commvault, we’re striving for a balance in what it means to connect meaningfully whether it is in person or remotely. The global pandemic helped us navigate how to extend those connections around the world in virtual spaces and do it successfully to have “courageous conversations” around various topics.
In my role, my goal is focused on empowering everyone to be a change agent towards moving the Commvault community forward– especially driving lasting and impactful change for all dimensions of diversity. In various workplaces, there are diversity, equity and inclusion (DE&I) efforts focused on improving the recruitment, retention, advancement and sense of belonging for those from diverse, unique backgrounds and cultures. Within Commvault, we have the Multi-Culture Employee Resource Group (ERG) focused on helping to create connections, education and awareness of our global cultures.
The Commvault Multi-Culture ERG is committed to providing a space of refuge, celebration, and reflection for Vaulters that hail from underrepresented racial backgrounds and allies at Commvault. We strive to bring awareness to the beauty, value, and contributions of all racial and ethnic backgrounds.
As a company, we’re working towards that meaningful change and creating a sustainable foundation to support future efforts where all feel like they belong and can thrive. In honor of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., let’s continue to make a commitment to ourselves, others, and our broader global community that we will create space for positive change, more connections, and making our places in the world a more welcoming environment -– we’re in this together!
