Technology, Media, and Telecommunications Insights has joined Workplace Pride and become a pilot member of its Strive to RISE program. TMT Insights prioritizes diversity and sustainability as much as driving its business growth.
TMT, which specializes in professional services and software development for the media and entertainment industry, is actively evaluating its company-wide activities to maintain carbon neutrality and reduce environmental impact.
“Starting a new company gave us a unique opportunity to build the right type of culture from the ground up,” said Hannah Barnhardt, COO & co-founder, TMT Insights. “That means a secure, welcoming, and supportive workplace where everyone feels safe to ask questions, state opinions, and even disagree. It’s a strong internal foundation that we can build on to inspire creativity, nurture innovation, and amplify everyone’s voice so we can continually learn from one another.”
TMT is confident that its relationships with Workplace Pride and Strive to RiSE, two leading organizations focused on LGBTIQ+ gender and ethnic inclusion in the technology and media communities, will strengthen the company’s internal efforts to adapt to the changing nature of media and entertainment.
TMT Insights has focused its social and environmental efforts into a new company group under the direction of Patty Minichiello, global brand experience Manager. Her philosophy is that diversity, equity and inclusion efforts must go hand in hand with sustainability actions.
“Promoting allyship, encouraging advocacy, and supporting underserved communities are ongoing efforts, and the best results occur when everyone works together,” said Minichiello. “Our involvement with these wonderful organizations will help us bridge the gaps between the diverse groups within our industry.”
As a part of an ongoing commitment to sustainability, the company has partnered with Greenly, a global environmental organization focused on helping companies reduce greenhouse gas emissions, a key element of TMT’s sustainability strategy, as well as implementing training and education to ensure responsible purchasing policies.
“It’s all about meeting people where they are in a spirit of mutual respect and collaboration,” said Barnhardt. “That’s the best way to create new opportunities for growth and change, whether it’s with our employees, clients, partners, or suppliers. We’ll always emphasize the importance of accountability and awareness to make sure everyone’s committed to the same mission and headed in the right direction.”
