Connecting Company With CommunityBy Bina Chaurasia
We do the right thing
Doing the right thing is one of our core values here at Tanium, and one of many reasons why we have always focused on giving back to our communities. I wanted to share some recent updates that our team is very excited about.
We will be donating 2% of our profit with a focus on educational organizations creating opportunity for youth underserved in our communities and underrepresented in STEM fields. To help us make the best possible impact, we started by partnering with three organizations focused on three key areas:
- Computer Science Teachers Association, dedicated to improving K-12 computer science education by empowering and educating teachers.
- Hour of Code is an initiative by Code.org® dedicated to expanding access to computer science in schools and increasing participation by women and underrepresented minorities.
- Year Up, dedicated to closing the opportunity divide for at-risk youth ages 18 to 24 through skills development, professional experiences and support.
Impacting our local communities
As a global Tanium team, we are spending 2% of our time volunteering in our local communities. Each organization is chosen by a Tanium employee, who then brings together a team of colleagues to help give back. In October, we saw more than 700 team members across three countries and 11 states participate in 21 volunteering events. In just 31 days, the team gave back over 2,000 hours of their time to their chosen organizations!
These activities provide opportunities for us to give back to and engage with our local communities as a team and are part of our ongoing #TaniumGivesBack initiative. We believe we can make a difference in our communities, and I look forward to seeing the impact we can make together.
If you would like to learn more about our partnerships, or get in touch with us about our #TaniumGivesBack program, please reach out to [email protected]. You are also welcome to follow the program on social channels with #TaniumGivesBack, or learn more about life at Tanium on our career site.
No two days at Tanium are the same, but each day offers the opportunity to work alongside intelligent, driven colleagues who want to win as a team and deliver unparalleled solutions for our customers. Come join our team. Check our open positions at Tanium Careers.
