Pax8 | 2021 Canvas Diversity Hiring Leader

Pax8 Named a Canvas 2021 DE&I Remarkable Achievements Award Winner

DENVER, CO (June 17, 2021) – Pax8, the best place for IT professionals to buy cloud products, today announced it had been recognized by Canvas, the leading Diversity Recruiting Platform, as one of the 2021 DE&I Remarkable Achievements Award Winners. Pax8 tops the shortlist for Remarkable Achievement in DE&I hiring in the first annual Canvas AWARDS honoring companies who invest in inclusive hiring practices.

“We are honored to be recognized by Canvas as a 2021 DE&I Remarkable Achievements Award winner for our continued diversity and inclusion efforts,” said Susan Mitnick, Chief Human Resources Officer at Pax8. “Diversity is a critical part of Pax8’s culture, and we work diligently to recruit talent from various backgrounds and cultures. As we grow, we continue to add new resources and introduce new processes that empower our DE&I efforts, creating a workplace where employees feel represented, supported, and celebrated.”

Pax8 was recognized alongside 120 companies for taking a data brave approach to hiring and actively investing in hiring teams who represent the changing face of America.

“Diversity is not about the individual. It is about the team, the group,” said Tariq Mayers, Chief People Officer at Canvas. “Diversity is not about you or me; it is about all of us. There is plenty of research showing bringing people together from different backgrounds, identities, and experiences is not just good for business and is the right thing to do; it also creates high-performing teams. Companies need to recognize and name their unique diversity problem and ask: ‘Who is not in the room? Whose perspective is missing?”

Mayers continued: “The worst thing companies can do right now is set broad and ambiguous diversity goals. The companies we are honoring today are setting an example by being data brave. They are using a DRP to gain visibility into the diversity of applicants in their hiring process, so they can make informed decisions and take the guesswork out of hiring teams who represent the audience they are building their products for.”
