Measuring Our Progress

Diversity is about representation and at Mission, we know that understanding what that make-up looks like is necessary in order to create an environment of inclusion. This means we measure the representation of different gender identities, races, nationalities, and sexual orientations as well as backgrounds such as veteran status. We continue to refine what we measure and how we measure our progress. It’s all part of living according to our core values of Be Inclusive and Continuous Growth.

Employee Resource Groups (ERG)

Mission Employee Resource Groups (ERG) are voluntary, employee-led groups that foster a diverse, inclusive workplace aligned with organizational mission, values, goals, business practices, and objectives. There are currently six ERGs at Mission.

Black at Mission (BAM)
BAM's mission is to drive the success of our Black employees. BAM facilitates opportunities for professional development, maintains a safe space, increases representation of Black employees at all levels of leadership, and actively contributes to the greater Black community.
Centered Acceptance, Living Mindfully (CALM)
CALM provides resources, facilitation, and community building around personal wellbeing, including mental and physical health. Through events, newsletters, and an internal Slack channel, CALM helps Mission employees integrate their wellbeing as part of their workday.
People of Color (POC)
POC’s mission is to create an intentional space to uncover the experiences, sentiments, and needs of employees of color. POC’s goal is to increase the involvement and participation of people of color within Mission, provide professional development opportunities, and offer representation at all levels of the organization.
People Respecting Individuality (and) Sexuality (at) Mission (PRISM)
PRISM's mission is to empower and support LGBTQQIAA+ employees by providing a platform for equal representation to promote and enhance leadership development at all levels within Mission. PRISM raises cultural awareness and focuses on fair representation in our networks. We provide a safe space to connect, communicate, and address LGBTQQIAA+ issues
Values Advisory Committee (VAC)
The VAC is a group of cross-functional, diverse team members. The VAC regularly meets to identify issues, discuss ways to cultivate a culture aligned with our core values, and advise Senior Leadership based on those discussions. The VAC is continuously in touch with fellow team members to ensure everyone's voice is represented.
Women’s Input Successfully Driving Our Mission (WISDOM)
WISDOM's mission is to inspire confidence and drive growth for the women of Mission and the women of our community. WISDOM offers a safe forum to connect and address issues facing women by honoring our backgrounds and our uniqueness. WISDOM seeks to inspire all who identify as women to fearlessly seek knowledge, be boldly courageous, and create meaningful connections.

Professional Development

We view development as an Evolution. No matter where you start, we have programs to help you attain the skills and experience you need to move forward in your career. We sponsor technical and professional training for everyone - no exceptions - and help you get one-on-one feedback through structured mentorship and coaching. Team members map out their professional goals with their managers, and are encouraged to move up, sideways, or anywhere they feel they can develop.

Leadership Development

Leadership comes in many forms. Some of our team members are driven to become leaders in their technical area, and others are excited by the potential to manage and develop a team. We foster technical and professional development of our team members through our leadership development programs. Our technical leaders become APN Ambassadors, building their own brands as experts in AWS technology. Team members can also become great people leaders through our Leadership Badge program and training on management competencies.

Through this curriculum, leaders gain management skills, build strategic thinking capabilities, and learn how to build a culture where inclusivity and well-being are paramount.
