At Sprinklr, we strive to create a culture of belonging – where everyone feels valued and listened to in a judgment-free zone. We believe in treating one another like family. Kristina Henry, a member of our Culture and Talent team, shared her definition of family with our founder and CEO and Founder, Ragy Thomas, and me, which I love. “When something happens to one of us, it happens to all of us. When a family member is in pain, we’re all in pain.”
Black lives matter.
Last week I had the honor of meeting with a number of Sprinklr’s black employees. They came together and shared their stories with me in the most raw and vulnerable way. I got a glimpse of their pain. I am so very grateful that they trusted me enough to share.
My life is forever enriched thanks to these amazing people. I have always had a great passion for creating a world that is just and fair … a culture of belonging. That said, our discussion made me realize I fall short of where I want and need to be – a stronger ally – driving meaningful and lasting change.
Imagine a world where each of us TAKES ACTION and holds ourselves accountable to the highest standard …. a world where we TREAT EACH OTHER AS EQUALS versus simply talking about it.
It starts with us
The key to building a true “culture of belonging” is to reach deep within ourselves to understand our own biases, and listen intently to learn from people whose journey is different from our own. What a beautiful world this would be if, just once a day, we all reached out and embraced one person different from us to understand their lives – to “feel” their pain and their joy!
Let’s take action to go so deep within ourselves and with others, that we move to intense action! I’m lucky to work with our CEO, Ragy Thomas, and many colleagues who genuinely care about listening, learning, and taking meaningful action.
Here are several initial actions that we are taking at Sprinklr to accelerate building our culture of belonging:
I would love to learn from you! Please share your insights and learnings and what you and/or your organization are doing to create a healthier and more inclusive culture!
History starts now!
