Jennifer Tejada, PagerDuty CEO

PagerDuty’s commitment to inclusion, diversity, and equity remains unwavering. It is a foundation of our organizational values, part of our mission and culture, and embedded into our business strategy. We are more innovative, higher performing, and more successful when we reflect the diverse communities we serve.

Our second annual Inclusion, Diversity, and Equity (ID&E) report shares successes over the past year, those occasions where outcomes fail to match our ambitions, and our learnings from both.

We will continue to make quantifiable commitments and track our progress. We will support our employees and customers in their efforts. I, and our team, are committed to ensuring we are both inclusive and anti-racist, and foster authentic belonging for our Dutonians.

Talent retention

Developing inclusive leaders

We made a dedicated investment in an ID&E organization-wide learning approach, with the goal to enable Dutonians of all backgrounds to be champions, facilitators, and practitioners of inclusion, diversity, and equity everywhere. Our investment in a leading learning content partner focuses on translating behavioral science principles into a unique set of experiences, products, and tools to create company-wide behavior change. This partnership allows us to start and accelerate our multi-year journey to transform every employee into inclusive leader-practitioners.

Mentorship program

We launched our first reverse Mentorship Program, designed for Senior Leadership Team (SLT) members to mentor Black and Brown Dutonians in developing their career and provide guidance, while also learning best practices of allyship for supporting Black and Brown communities inside and outside the workplace.

Talent attraction

PagerDuty is a 2021 Best Workplace for Women to Advance winner, a Certified™ Great Place to Work©, and a Women in Tech DEI Initiative of the Year nominee.
