Diversity, Inclusion and Belonging: Intelex Hosts its First Employee Resources Groups Summit

Last week, our Employee Resources Groups (ERG) hosted our first ERG Summit. We listened, we learned and we committed to continue to make Intelex a place where everyone can be their true, authentic selves.

Our ERGs worked hard to bring Intelexians informative and interactive sessions. As we continue our diversity, inclusion, and belonging journey, these sessions were a deeper dive into topics and discussions. 

Our Persons with Disabilities ERG kicked off the week with a presentation on the importance of accessibility, and how we need to create tools to be accessible. By creating tools for the “average user,” we can miss a large proportion of those with mobility, cognitive, hearing and vision impairments.

“Software Accessibility 101” was presented by Michael Harshbarger, of Deque Systems, Inc., who reminded the group that disabilities come in many shapes and forms, but not all of them are noticeable:

  • 74% of people who have disabilities are dealing with conditions you

IWD2021: Simrit Rye: Inspire a Workforce Culture That Is Inclusive and Diverse

The theme for International Women’s Day (IWD) 2021 is: “A challenged world is an alert world and from challenge comes change,” and Simrit Rye wants to inspire women to not count themselves out when it comes to opportunities.

Simrit, VP of Global Service at Intelex Technologies, is challenging traditional thinking by encouraging teams to consider all applicants when filling a position. A candidate who might not “tick” all the boxes could still be a great fit for your team and allowing them the opportunity to interview – even if they don’t get the job – could provide them with insight regarding their qualifications and experience.

At Intelex, we celebrate the accomplishments of womxn every day, and during the month of March, we are profiling employees, partners and customers as a way to celebrate IWD2021.

What is your name, title, and company?

Driving Hyperconnectivity: Four Ways to Build Strong Connections with Coworkers While Working Remotely

It’s commonly understood that people, well, most people, are social creatures. Of course, the degree varies from person to person and even within that, the preferences and “social meters” of each individual shifts and changes through the years.

Pretty basic, right?

The objective of this blog, however, is more than just to prove that being social is in our DNA, it is to provide actionable recommendations on how we can maintain relationships, particularly with those colleagues, in these “virtual times.”


The Rise of Remote Working in Post-Pandemic Times
