We have heart


Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion at Anova

We know that to build a resilient and sustainable company, it is crucial to understand how power and privilege impact people differently across our country. The barriers and discrimination that marginalized communities face have been built over the course of multiple generations and will take time to undo and unlearn. We are doing the work to address our own biases and create a more diverse, inclusive, and equitable culture within the Anova community.


Building on Diversity.


Diversity is all the ways in which people differ, including race, ethnicity, gender, disability, sexual orientation, gender identity, national origin, language, socioeconomic status, and much more. However, we recognize that in the U.S. particular marginalized groups have faced extensive barriers, specifically BIPOC, LGBTQ, and immigrant communities. We are taking the steps to intentionally dismantle these barriers within each team at Anova and recruit and retain diverse talent at every level. We believe teams with diverse backgrounds make better decisions, better products, and a better company.


Difference is celebrated.


Equitable organizations realize that the playing field is not always even. Obstacles exist for many that do not exist for others. Equity means access to processes, tools, and communication styles that allow us to recognize the full contribution of each team and individual and provide equal opportunity for advancement.


Everyone has a seat at the table.


Inclusion is creating environments in which individuals or groups can be and feel welcomed, respected, heard, supported, and empowered to share their ideas and perspectives. It is a culture of belonging where every person’s voice adds value to Anova.
