Alucio™ Joins The Board Challenge Initiative as a Charter Pledge Partner
Company Joins Movement to Improve the Representation of People of Color in Corporate US Boardrooms
San Francisco, CA (September 24, 2020) - Alucio™, a fast-growing provider of cloud-based software for the life sciences industry, announced today that it has joined The Board Challenge (www.theboardchallenge.org) initiative created to improve the representation of Black directors in corporate US boardrooms. Companies taking The Board Challenge pledge commit to adding a Black director to their board within the next year.
Since Alucio is an organization that already has a Black director on its board, the company has been designated a Charter Pledge Partner. These partner companies agree to support the program, reinforce the importance of board diversity, share best practices and encourage other companies to participate. In addition to this designation, Alucio is also a fully-certified minority business enterprise (MBE) company.
Through this movement, US companies and business leaders are coming together to increase accountability and improve representation of people of color in the boardroom. Alucio joins an initial group of leading US companies, across various industries, already participating in the program including Merck, Verizon, Sonos, Uber, Lyft, and Zillow.
Dave Gulezian, Alucio Co-Founder and CEO commented, “The Board Challenge is a positive, constructive step that companies large and small can take to support inclusion and increase diversity within the leadership of their organizations. Alucio is proud to be part of this important initiative which fully aligns with our company values. We hope that other companies will choose to participate as well.”
