Ashley Goldsmith:

Workday is an extremely values driven culture. One of our primary focus areas is closing the opportunity gap. We know that talent is everywhere, but opportunity is not and it has unequal application. 

Chano Fernandez:

Workday started in 2005. Our goal was to revolutionalize back-office processes.

Pete Schlampp:

The two most important resources that a business has are people and money. That's the core of what Workday works on. Allowing our customers to optimize the use of those. 

Ashley Goldsmith:

Today Workday we're delivering applications and financial management, spend management, planning, HR analytics, and more. We work across all industries, thousands of customers, and across the globe. 

Pete Schlampp:

In 2020, our customers needed to rapidly adapt their business to this changing world. Being able to turn around solutions to our customers very quickly, that is very inspiring for me. 

Chano Fernandez:

We collaborated a lot with customers because we really need to understand the needs, the challenges, and what our customers needed us to prioritize on building

Chano Fernandez:

As a society, as a world, we have big problems to solve. We all can do more about completely eliminating bias in terms of hiring.

Ashley Goldsmith: 

We’re doubling down on building inclusive products and technology. We've just launched Vibe Central and Vibe Index, and these are ways to help leaders in other organizations advance their diversity and belonging efforts.

Pete Schlampp:

The Skills Cloud is on the forefront of something that we call skills-based employment. It has really large benefits for populations that have been disadvantaged in the past.

Ashley Goldsmith:

You’ve got this wonderful ability to look at what are the skills that they bring to the table. And that really helps open up the world of opportunity much more broadly for all of us, no matter our background. 

Chano Fernandez:

Workday as a company has set up their own goals in terms of belonging, diversity, and inclusion, that are quite aggressive, but we're tremendously committed to it. 

Ashley Goldsmith:

We are investing $45 million in advancing the belonging and diversity efforts across our organization.

Chano Fernandez: 

I’m tremendously excited for how innovation keeps changing the world but at the same time how innovation can solve the diversity and belonging and inclusion problems.
