Initiated and joined MotherBoard Charter
as a signatory to support mothers, mothers-to-be, and women within Tech and Data.
At Vault Data, we are passionate about creating an inclusive, diverse, open, and transparent organizational culture. As we continue to grow, we are determined to focus on Culture-Add instead of Culture-Fit. We are delighted to be a signatory of the MotherBoard Charter to promote, encourage and support mothers, mothers-to-be, and women within tech and data.
Objectives:1. Champion part-time and flexible working across all levels of seniority, enabling the advancement of women’s careers in technology and data-led roles:
True to the startup culture, we are a truly flexible employer and value outcome over output. We currently facilitate flexible working hours and work locations. We believe everyone across all levels of seniority must have autonomy on how
they work, etc.
While we are at a very early stage in our startup journey, we are heavily invested in creating a fantastic place to work as we want to attract and retain the best talent as we grow. Employee happiness and well-being are of the utmost importance to us. Therefore, we will ensure our current facilitations remain intact as we grow and are working toward introducing mental health and financial health platforms to our employee benefits. Our objective is to champion part-time and flexible working across all levels of seniority, enabling the advancement of women’s careers in technology and data-led roles.2. Increase the % of working mothers holding leadership or board-level positions:
Most of our workforce are women, and one of our co-founders is a mother! As we grow, we will continue encouraging and supporting more mothers, mothers-to-be, and women to hold leadership and board-level positions.3. Educate organizations on how they can support mothers throughout their careers:
While we are at a very early stage in our startup journey, we have big ambitious plans and are passionate about building an open, transparent, and fair organizational culture.
As we grow, we will continue to support, recruit, upskill and promote individuals to ensure we are creating an inclusive, diverse and supportive environment for all, especially mothers, mothers-to-be, and women returning to work, transitioning to tech, etc.4. Improve maternity and return to work policies:
Establish and improve our maternity policy to ensure it is inviting and favors mothers, mothers-to-be, and women. Continue to recruit women returning to work or transitioning to tech, provide training, and facilitate continuous professional development plans to support their career portfolios.
