Partnering with Crunchbase and SaaStr, PagerDuty will identify and celebrate the people in tech and business that made the biggest impact in diversity this in 2017.

This award recognizes a leader who has driven tangible change in all aspects of diversity and equality for their company and beyond in 2017. This includes spearheading cultural programs and hiring initiatives that foster an inclusive environment, as well as driving meaningful conversations and impact in the broader technology community. The selection committee will consider the nominees’ trailblazing efforts in one or more of the following areas:
This award recognizes the leader who has achieved business success while serving as a positive influence in their professional community. Most notably, this leader clearly demonstrates the ability to achieve their goals, advance their careers, and use creativity to solve problems, all while maintaining ethical standards. The selection committee will consider the nominees’ trailblazing efforts in the following areas:

Many organizations claim to value diversity and inclusivity, but fail to put their money where their mouths are. This award recognizes the company that has demonstrated true commitment to inclusion through clear action and tangible results. The organization that wins this category will have successfully connected with employees to create an environment that values diversity, and displayed commitment to inclusion through hiring practices and cultural initiatives. The selection committee will consider the nominees’ trailblazing efforts in one or more of the following areas:
The winners will be announced and celebrated at the exclusive SaaStr 2017 Diversity Party on February 6, 2018. They will also have $500 donated to an organization of their choice in their names. The reception will honor the winners’ journeys, as well as provide a unique networking opportunity for leaders to share best practices and make new connections for change.
