As a leader in the technology research and advisory industry across the planet, we take seriously our responsibility to advocate for human dignity and equality.

We stand with the movement to make change and to bring balance in racial justice across the United States and around the world. We must remain unwavering in our responsibility to overcome our societal challenges in racism, bigotry and inequality towards outcomes that motivate action.

The civil unrest and frustration across the United States is riveting, and the injustice and prejudice oppressed upon our black communities must be addressed immediately. As a firm and as a collective voice of families and individuals, we can look inward, but we must ask what we can do to empower positive change in our society.

At Ventana Research, people are at the center of our being and our top priority. Our commitment to this is part of our mission and our values, and it has compelled us to elevate the focus of diversity and equality in the workplace.

We will do our part to speak up and represent that the values of humanity are everyone’s rights and ensure our pledge to do what we can as part of the solution. We recognize that we can do more and are committed to ensure our dialogue with our workforce and clients is part of socializing a path to improvement.

We at Ventana Research have a desire for progress and the knowledge that there is no place for racism or inequality in our firm or society, and we will do what we can to help influence change. This is a journey and we are committed to listening and learning from that which can advance the values and policies of our country.
