“This certification is a great milestone for Datasite and further supports our focus on remaining innovative and competitive by ensuring our workplace is equitable and everyone feels welcome,” said Deb LaMere, Datasite Chief Human Resource Officer. “At the same time, it also prompts us to think about what we still need to do to push ahead to foster even greater gender equality. Innovation must be fed a steady diet of sharp ideas in places where differing perspectives and equity are supported.”
