CREATING A TRANSFORMATIVE EFFECT ON LEARNING THROUGH VIDEO 🎥
Here at Panopto, we built a video platform that helps businesses and universities improve the way that they train, teach, and share knowledge. Since 2007, the company has been a pioneer in video capture software, video management, and inside-video-search technology. Panopto has been adopted by more than 1,300 companies and universities worldwide with over eight million end users. Today, Panopto’s video management system is the largest repository of expert learning videos in the world.

IMPORTANCE OF DE&I IN OUR ORGANIZATION & OUR PRODUCT 🔑
Panopto’s mission is to help anyone share knowledge using video. Our user base is as diverse as the world’s universities and businesses. To fulfill our mission with the best products and services, we eagerly seek individuals who bring diversity of background, experience, and thought to create an engaging work environment, foster innovation and better understand and meet the needs of our users. We encourage people from underrepresented and/or marginalized backgrounds, including BIPOC, LatinX, LGBTQ+, women, and people with disabilities, to join our organization.
We understand that we employ people from across the globe and from a variety of backgrounds and life experiences. Because these differences exist, we must support people in different ways and focus on individualistic needs. We work to ensure that people with marginalized identities have access to the opportunities to grow, contribute, and develop, regardless of their identity.
Inclusion is making sure everyone feels welcome and valued, everyone feels like they contribute, and everyone is part of the Panopto team. Inclusion at Panopto is about creating safe spaces for people to be seen, heard and accepted. It’s about bringing people into the conversation and approaching differences from a place of curiosity. We have recently conducted an Inclusive Hiring course with hiring managers and interviewers and are getting ready to launch an Inclusive Culture training with all managers and leaders within Panopto. This will continue to be ongoing learning for all.
BUILDING AN ENVIRONMENT OF DIFFERENT PERSPECTIVES🧠
All employees are encouraged to engage in important conversations and training that focus on crucial topics such as how to examine our unconscious biases and create an inclusive workplace environment. We recognize that there is always room for improvement and growth, which is why we are constantly working to review all internal programs and processes to ensure that they start with an equity-inspired design.
We have various resources available for employees to educate themselves on how to be anti-racist and an ally for our BIPOC community members. Employees also have the ability to create or join Slack channels which may appeal to their backgrounds and identities. This is a space where employees can support each other and share in any struggles or challenges that they may be facing together.
EMPLOYEE HEALTH & HAPPINESS 🤸🏼♂️
Employees will have weekly 1:1’s and biannual performance reviews with their manager to make sure that their professional development goals are being met. Employees can also access LinkedIn Learning if they are interested in learning any new skills and practices. Your mental and emotional health are just as important to us as your physical health, which is why we provide free access for employees to use HeadSpace. HeadSpace is a resource filled with guided meditations, animations, articles and videos which teach you how to manage your stress.
We understand the challenge of the work-life balance, which is why we provide a flexible work environment and a generous PTO plan. We love to give back to our employees through thoughtful care packages and company events, when we are allowed to be in office that is.
CREATING A BETTER TECH INDUSTRY 👩🏾🏫
Our workforce is comprised of a spectrum of perspectives and experiences, and this diversity of experience and background only strengthens our approach in architecting solutions for all consumers. We also believe that our product has the ability to help improve diversity, equity, and inclusion in the community. Sharing of knowledge through video has the potential to help people in under-represented groups find a louder voice, and the potential to bring knowledge and learning to groups of people that may struggle to access it today. This shift for equitable access has proven to be valuable, most notably in the education sector.
