At VTEX, we believe that diversity and inclusion are essential assets in creating an environment where people genuinely feel they belong.
Thriving is only possible when we develop solutions that can fulfill the needs of customers from different countries, languages, and experiences. And the only way to build a comprehensive platform is by bringing together a global, representative team.
So, we create an environment that fosters diversity and make sure that our employees feel safe to be themselves, bringing solutions based on their experiences and points of view. These are key aspects of our declared future.
Check out some milestones that are leading us to a more diverse and inclusive ecosystem.
Cultivate an inclusive environment starts from the inside
In 2020, we created a Diversity Committee and four affinity groups to address initiatives focused on the specific needs of each community. Our affinity groups are based on four different pillars: race, ethnicity, and culture; gender equality; LGBTQIA+ and people with disabilities.
They exist globally but act locally, understanding that diversity and inclusion have their agenda depending on where you are in the world. Our team is located in 18 locations around the world, so we want to make sure they have the autonomy they need to propose actions that are based on their life experiences.
Cultivating inclusion, belonging, and allyship
To impact society, we must be in the playing field to promote the changes we want to see. And this commitment is extended to the diversity, inclusion, and equity areas.
At VTEX, we believe that we can impact society where we are potent: the knowledge of digital commerce. So, education is our chosen instrument of social impact. Tetrix, Hiring Coders, Digit.all and Black Tech Writers are some of VTEX’s annual programs.
Digit.all is a global initiative to bring more diversity to the digital commerce market through free training and enablement of professionals from minority groups, with programs in the areas of ecommerce, legal tech, sales and leadership. The program focuses on women, LGBTQI+, people of color or with disabilities. While Tetrix is the biggest university challenge in the world according to the Guinness World Records, connecting young talents and the digital market.The Black Tech Writer program provides a complete course of tech writing to black and brown people who desire to start a career in Tech.
