RingCentral: One more step forward in creating an equal and inclusive environment

Of the many reasons that brought me to RingCentral (just two weeks ago), one of the most important was finding a company whose values and beliefs matched my own. This meant an unwavering commitment to diversity and inclusion – a company where every team member feels comfortable bringing their best and authentic self to work – no matter age, cultural background, physical ability, race, religion, gender, or sexual orientation.

I am thrilled that my first post on behalf of RingCentral is about equality, the progress we have made, and the long journey ahead. For the second year running, RingCentral has achieved a 100% ranking on the Human Rights Campaign Foundation’s Corporate Equality Index (CEI) and has been recognized as a Best Place to Work for LGBTQ Equality. As a long-time ally of the LGBTQ+ community, I am truly proud. Thank you to every RingCentral employee who has made this possible – members of the community and every ally.

To our RingCentral LGBTQ+ team members? Please keep us honest. While this may come across as a celebration of small steps taken, it is as much an acknowledgment of the journey ahead and the ongoing struggle for equality. While I am thankful for the efforts here at RingCentral, I know there is always work to be done. This year RingCentral is among 686 leading companies out of 1059 to reach the 100% distinction. My hope for next year would be continuing on this path and see all 1059 companies join in!
