“As an organization, our values drive our approach to ESG, which is based on the concepts of transparency, accountability, and clarity,” said Dustin Moskovitz, co-founder and CEO, Asana. “We have built and nurtured our culture with the same care and intentionality that we’ve invested in designing our product. It’s not just about doing the right thing; these efforts are essential to maximizing the longevity and success of our business.”
Culture as a core driver of business success
For employees to do their best work, and to achieve Asana’s mission, everyone must feel respected, valued, and welcomed into the Asana community. Asana approaches diversity, inclusion, and belonging (DIB) as an ongoing and integrated process, not something to be achieved. Asana’s programs center around three key elements:
- Building a strong foundation of support and resources for employees.
- Recruiting and developing talent from historically marginalized and underrepresented groups and backgrounds.
- Creating an environment that allows employees to thrive and do their best work.
