FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Seramount (formerly Working Mother Media) unveiled its fifth annual Inclusion Index today, and Citrix Systems, Inc. (NASDAQ:CTXS) has been recognized as a leader for its efforts to fuel diverse, equal and inclusive opportunities across its global operations.
“The need to address inclusion in the workplace continues to be a priority for corporate America,” says Katie Oertli Mooney, Vice President of Diversity Best Practices at Seramount. “Progress has been made, but we must remain steadfast in our efforts. We are proud to recognize Citrix for their dedication and for putting in the necessary work to effect real, sustainable change.”
Designed to help organizations understand trends and gaps in demographic representation, the Inclusion Index creates a road map to drive internal change, and identifies diversity, equity, and inclusion (DE&I) solutions to close the gaps. Organizations included in the Index were measured in three key areas:
- Best practices in the recruitment, retention, and advancement of people from underrepresented groups—women, racial/ethnic minorities, people with disabilities, and LGBTQ+ people
- Inclusive corporate culture, including leadership accountability; and demographic diversity for women and racial/ethnic minorities.
- Initiatives to address racism
Citrix was among 27 organizations recognized as a Leading Inclusion Index Company, receiving a 70 percent or higher score.
“At Citrix, we recognize the power of human difference, and together with our employees, are focused on creating a diverse and inclusive environment in which people can be their authentic selves and, in turn, do their best work,” said Scott Ballina, Senior Director, Diversity and Inclusion, Citrix. “We are pleased to be recognized as a leader by Seramount for our efforts and will continue to enhance our programs to align with our people and create a standout-environment in which they can succeed.”
