She says, of her approach to reinforcing BlueCat’s culture: “We’re collaborative in making things better across the organization, whether that pertains to diversity and inclusion efforts, mental health-supportive initiatives, or engagement and wellness activities. The more we conduct real and sometimes uncomfortable conversations across the board, the more we’re able to provide our team with the support needed to thrive both within and outside of their roles.”
Moving forward, BlueCat will continue to uphold its commitment to transparency and wellbeing across all facets of the organization and continue to invest in company-wide DEI education and programs that benefit each employee.
