#BeBoldForChange on International Women’s Day

“What, Sir, would the people of the earth be without woman? They would be scarce, sir, almighty scarce.” —MARK TWAIN

On International Women’s Day, we celebrate the contributions that women make to our societies and communities. This year’s theme #BeBoldForChange calls for efforts to forge a better working world that is more gender-inclusive in the workplace.

We couldn’t agree more.

Women’s contributions in the workplace should be celebrated, not just one day a year, but year-round and we’re committed to fostering a workplace culture that is inclusive and diverse. At Starry, women don’t just have a seat at the table, often, they have the head seat. From senior engineers to government affairs, design, business development and sales, women populate leadership roles throughout the company and comprise 20 percent of our workforce. It’s a number that continues to grow and something we’re very proud of.

As a technology startup, we’re laser-focused on our business. But we’re also laser-focused on developing a workplace culture that embraces diversity – of race, gender and perspectives – not just because it looks good, but because it’s good for business. We can serve our customers better when we reflect the communities we serve and that in turn, helps us grow our company.
