Pride at Deltek: Celebrating Our Winning Workplace Culture

June 29, 2023

As a Washington Post Top Workplace, Deltek understands the pivotal role workplace culture plays in achieving success. That is why we are committed to creating an environment that our employees and customers can be proud of. Our values-driven organization encourages members of Deltek Project Nation to be authentic about who they are, giving them a voice and a sense of belonging.

A diverse and inclusive workplace can be challenging to find and create. But organizations that truly care about making their workplace inclusive can foster positive communication, trust and empowerment among employees. Since 2016, the Pride at Deltek employee resource group (ERG) has done just that, serving as a platform for our LGBTQ+ employees and allies by providing educational sessions, networking opportunities and social activities.

In celebration of Pride Month, we sat down with members of our Pride at Deltek ERG to discuss why an inclusive workplace culture is essential to our success, the evolution of our diversity, equity and inclusion (DEI) programs and what it means to have pride at Deltek.
