What I am most proud of at Branch is when I was an intern in Summer 2019, I brought forward and started a discussion about gender pronouns: how we can educate the company on what they are, when to use them, how we can include them in recruiting to be more inclusive, and how we can enable people to share them with coworkers every day. I did this as a part of the Pride ERG, and I was proud of the discussion and awareness I started with my actions, and incredibly proud of the fact that I was so supported by my team and the founders.
I am most proud of my ability to collaborate effectively with so many different teams within Branch. Not only are all the people brilliant but everyone values feedback and seeks to grow.
D&I to me means being a part of a company that doesn't all come from the same background. One of my favorite things I've seen at Branch is the honoring of Juneteenth as a holiday. Being a part of our internal Employee Resource Group named Roots, I have always felt comfortable having a safe space. On top of that seeing Branch show that they value my voice and freedom but making this day a holiday was amazing.
I am most proud to contribute to various initiatives that are connected to the major changes happening in the world around us (Adtech changes + Global Pandemic + Racial Injustices). Rather than taking a mypoic approach, Branch has given employees an opportunity to to engage strategically on each of these respective topics. I have had several jobs where my day to day was primarily reactive but at this moment - the proactive experience is priceless.
I love the challenging environment Branch has, working with some of the brightest in the industry. It really makes you come prepared every day and give 110%. Branch is unique in that they really allow you to figure out where you want to be in your career. They give a lot of freedom and flexibility to people who want to learn new things. I've seen many people jump from one department to another before finding what they're truly passionate about. D&I gives everyone an equal opportunity and chance to be represented in whatever they do. My favorite D&I event is the women's event we did during International Women's Week.
I like the people of Branch. They are supportive, kind, and professional. Working with the right people boosts up a person. Branch is unique because of its culture. It leads me to the right way every time I need to make a decision about my work. I had no chance to attend the D&I event in our headquarters but I want to try to engage in the Hispanic Heritage Month once.
