Leading & Inspiring Others

In IT, women make up only 20% of the industry, according to Gartner. At Technologent, not only are we Woman Owned, but the fact that 40% of our employees are women makes us unique. Women are significantly underrepresented in our industry. So much so, that Fortune 100 companies like Dell and Cisco have moonshot goals to achieve female representation of 40% or better by 2030. We achieved this in 2020.
We work hard to make sure women feel comfortable as well as seen and heard in a male-dominated industry, so we created Women of Tech(nologent) where we host annual events for the women in our organization and invite our female constituents from our vendor partners to join in with us.
In 2021, we hosted our first International Women’s Day event with a panel of female leaders in our industry that really opened up about their success, balancing family and career as well as the hurdles they have had to jump as a woman in IT. As all of the ladies in our organization can attest, each participant of our IWD event was sent a hand-crafted Acacia Wood Heart Bowl which were made by female artisans who live in marginalized rural communities in the Philippines. Our CISO, Jon Mendoza is from the Philippines, so we wanted to support his native country while also supporting women who are marginalized. We believe in supporting women inside and outside of our industry.
We partner with key OEMs like Dell Technologies, Cisco, Microsoft, AMD, Morpheus, ServiceNow and Zerto who make Diversity and Inclusion a priority.
With success comes responsibility, and we strongly believe in giving back to our community. We have been supporting philanthropies such as Girl Scouts of America and Girls who Code for many years. In 2017, we lost an employee during the horrific Route 91 Harvest Festival shooting in Las Vegas. In her honor, we launched the “Neysa Davis Tonks Mentor Endowment” at UNLV. Neysa was passionate about education and mentoring, so this endowment provides financial support for students to participate in the Peer Research Coaching Program to support mentoring of students.
The endowment is funded in a variety of ways, but this year our engineers have refurbished a 1955 Chevy truck which will be auctioned at the Barrett-Jackson Las Vegas show and all proceeds from that sale will go towards the endowment. Like Neysa, we, too, are passionate about education and mentoring, so we offer paid internships to around 10-15 college students each year. We focus on teaching them organizational and leadership skills as well as sales and IT training.
Technologent and their employees also support philanthropies such as A Mighty Change of Heart - which provides duffle bags, school backpacks and scholarships to children in foster care. And the last few years we have sponsored a team who does a sleep out on the streets to bring awareness and funds to the Covenant House who works to keep children off the street. Finally, our leadership team support Willow International who work to stop human trafficking as well as restore the lives of the victims that have been rescued.
