“We recognize that a diverse, inclusive culture will make us stronger. We encourage an environment in which understanding, empathy, and appreciation of diversity are prioritized.

Engaging in the Community
Servant Leadership is a CapTech core value, so it is not surprising many employees are involved in their communities, serving on regional boards and supporting non-profits. From CapTech’s start over 20 years ago, community involvement is a key part of our culture. CapTech actively participates in and sponsors many events to strengthen the diverse communities where we live and foster inclusion in our industry. We engage with a variety of non-profits supporting diverse communities with an emphasis on youth, career development, and vulnerable populations. We also partner with multiple diverse student organizations at universities across the country.
Encouraging Inclusion + Belonging From Within
CapTech has an active Diversity, Inclusion and Belonging Council – involving members of our leadership team – that fosters a culture to recruit, develop, and promote a diverse workforce. The Council is committed to empowering all employees to bring their unique ideas, backgrounds, and experiences to each client and company engagement, making CapTech a best-in-class consulting firm for employees and our clients. The Council is comprised of four committees, each focusing on important areas to the firm:
Raising awareness and increasing understanding by facilitating conversations and providing content recognizing diverse backgrounds to help CapTechers advance and foster an environment that encourages inclusivity and a sense of belonging.
Supporting underrepresented groups within STEM by creating new opportunities and avenues to build a more diverse and inclusive community, as well as supporting social justice within the technology industry.
Enhancing career progression and professional development through coaching, mentorship, and leadership programs, as well as Employee Resource Groups, which exist to strengthen a sense of belonging for all CapTechers.
Attracting talent from diverse ethnic, racial, cultural, educational, and talent backgrounds who embody CapTech's core values while being their unique selves.
