People of Color @ Okta

We started POC because representation matters. It matters because when we see people who look like us at work, it makes us feel like all opinions are respected. If that’s not enough, McKinsey & Company’s diversity report tells us that diverse companies are “better able to win top talent and improve their customer orientation, employee satisfaction, and decision making, and all that leads to a virtuous cycle of increasing returns.”

While we’re just getting started, we wanted to hear why representation matters to the broader Okta community and our society as a whole. At Oktane18, we erected a “Representation Matters” wall where attendees shared their personal stories and sentiments.
