Signifyd receives Bronze Diversity Mark Award for work in gender equality

  • Local tech firm Signifyd has been awarded the Bronze Diversity Mark by Diversity Mark Northern Ireland for its work on gender equality in the workplace.

    Diversity Mark Northern Ireland has become an important initiative for improving diversity among businesses in Northern Ireland, recognising companies that go beyond expectations to address equality, equity, and inclusion in the local business scene. The award was established by Women in Business in 2016 and helps to break down barriers faced by underrepresented groups in industry.

    To be awarded a diversity mark, companies must be able to present a complete strategy for building an equal workplace in which all people are treated fairly, valued, and have access to opportunities. An independent panel reviews the company's strategy before deciding whether to award the mark.

    Signifyd was awarded the Bronze Diversity Mark shortly before International Women’s Day 2021. The Bronze award focuses on gender equality and equity and follows a concerted effort by the company to improve gender diversity on the staff. The company is committed to improving diversity further across the company, and may get the silver diversity mark in the future.

    Christine White, head of Diversity Mark, commented: "We congratulate Signifyd on achieving the Bronze Diversity Mark for their commitment and dedication to gender diversity. Our independent assessment panel were thoroughly impressed with their measurable, tangible metrics and visible action plans which will ultimately benefit all employees, and they welcomed the clarity of their application and their energetic approach. We are excited to work with Signifyd on their diversity and inclusion journey as it unfolds over the coming years."
