Our mission

At Renaissance our mission is, “To accelerate learning for all children and adults of all ability levels and ethnic and social backgrounds, worldwide.” Inherent in a mission that strives to serve all children and adults is the need to recognize the importance of diversity, equity, and inclusion in our culture, in our work, and in our products. That is why our DEI mission is, “Accelerate learning for all by building a Renaissance for all.”


At Renaissance, our DEI strategy is built around three pillars: Equitable Talent Practices, Inclusive Culture, and Equity in Education. Renaissance’s Inclusion Council—a group of employees who represent different identities, locations, job levels, and functions from across the company—is helping to shape and implement that strategy.

We have created a fully organized DEI culture that involves people throughout the organization and is embedded within the very structure of Renaissance. Renaissance proudly:

  • Supports and gives resources to six different Employee Resource Groups (see below).
  • Partners with vendors like Textio and Fairygodboss to increase our ability to attract and source candidates from underrepresented backgrounds.
  • Requires all candidates to complete a skills-based and structured interview process to help remove bias in the selection process.
  • Provides training to all employees on topics such as managing unconscious bias, leading inclusively, addressing microaggressions, and practicing allyship. DEI-focused training is also a part of the onboarding process for new hires.
  • Tracks and communicates the results of our annual inclusion survey as well as internal data on representation and turnover to assess how best to focus our DEI efforts.

Employee Resource Groups

Employee Resource Groups (ERGs) are voluntary, employee-led groups made up of individuals who join together based on common interests, backgrounds or demographic factors such as gender, race or ethnicity. Our ERGs are sponsored by a member of the senior leadership team, and are given the resources needed to build community and impact change at Renaissance.

While we have come a long way, there is still plenty of work to do. A true commitment to creating an inclusive and equitable workplace requires ongoing evaluation, accountability, and action woven into every corner of our company culture.

In the meantime, our company values can help guide each of us. By prioritizing Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion, our organization Strives for the Best—knowing that by building diverse teams, we Win Together and become more innovative and collaborative than ever before. We also believe that doing what is right and communicating openly with one another—to Trust Each Other—is foundational to supporting inclusion and equity at Renaissance and across the communities we serve. We also recognize that we come to these conversations with different lived experiences and there will no doubt be some growing pains, and perhaps even conflict. By assuming good intent while focusing on impact, we Own Our Actions, and as we learn to navigate these topics and conversations—we Grow and Evolve—together.
