Diversity and Inclusion
At CapTech’s core is the belief that employees are more than the services they provide to their employer and its clients. We embrace the rich and diverse backgrounds that make each of us unique – our passions, cultures, perspectives and identities. We understand that diﬀerent thoughts, opinions, and life experiences do not just beneﬁt our teams – they lead to innovation, creativity, and better results for our clients. As we cultivate diversity, we continually try to understand and enhance what diversity means for our employees, our clients and the success of CapTech.
With Servant Leadership as a CapTech Core Value, it is not surprising that many of our employees are involved in the community, serving on boards and supporting nonproﬁts. From CapTech’s start over 20 years ago, community involvement has always been a key part of the company. CapTech actively participates in or sponsors a number of community events to support the diverse communities in which we live and to foster inclusion in our industry.
