Diversity, Equity & Inclusion
Tenna’s Commitment to Diversity, Equity and Inclusion
Long Term DEI Goals
Increase Diversity Hiring
Tenna aims to target a more diverse talent pool by conducting on-campus recruiting events at various HBCU’s and other institution that have a foundation based on DEI. We also seek to hire more diverse talent directly into management and executive level positions.
Promote Diversity Talent From Within
Not only does Tenna look to hire diverse talent externally, we place a high importance on retaining the talent that we currently have. We will continue to actively promote these individuals from within.
Continuous Training and Education
Tenna encourages all employees to volunteer for all causes, and specifically seeks to increase volunteerism at organizations that support individuals from diverse backgrounds. We also plan to host and attend various DEI related events and seminars.
Maintain Valuable Partnerships with External Organizations
Tenna partners with multiple organizations that have been founded to promote individuals in underrepresented groups. We continue to expand upon these partnerships, and we are proud to maintain and fortify the existing relationships we have today.
Tenna maintains an ongoing partnership with Dorson Community Foundation. Dorson Community Foundation provides low- income students of Color in Essex County, New Jersey with supplementary educational services, free SAT preparation services, professional development, and college counseling. The main goal of the foundation is to ensure its students to attend college, graduate with a bachelor’s degree, and broaden their horizons. Tenna was the first employer to partner with Dorson and we established our internship program in the summer of 2020 by bringing on our first intern. Our goal in partnering with Dorson is crystal clear: build a rotational STEM internship program, where Dorson students can intern and be compensated for their mastery of new skills and professional growth.
Tenna has partnered with Independence 360, which is an adult program for individuals with autism spectrum disorder and related special needs. A component of their program is to teach vocational skills as well as seek and retain paid employment. Tenna has had two paid employees and has been working with other Independence360 clients remotely as trainees (first step before paid employment) on warehouse projects. They have grown tremendously since beginning their respective tenures with Tenna. We remain eager to continue our work with Independence360; they are truly inspiring.
Tenna contracts Film Academy360 (FA360) for video projects for both marketing and training purposes. FA360 both employs and trains individuals with autism spectrum disorder and related special needs. They have provided filming and editing services to Tenna since 2017 and continue to be a valued resource.
