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:

IWD2021 – Mikki Teodoro-Manabat: The Work-Life Balance Is an Elusive Concept – the Ultimate Unicorn

The theme for International Women’s Day (IWD) 2021 is: “A challenged world is an alert world and from challenge comes change.” A big challenge for many of us in 2020 and 2021 has been mental health, and maintaining a work/life balance.

Mikki Teodoro-Manabat, Global Lead for HSE Performance at SGS, is challenging the idea that showing emotion is mistaken as weakness. “I feel so powerful and intelligent when I am able to work with empathy and mindfulness,” she says. “I want to take control of this narrative. One can be professional, reliable, and efficient and still be – above all – hu(wo)man. [I want] For my children to continue seeing that there is strength in being true to oneself.”

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.

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.
