A social inclusion initiative of ACON and a member-based program, Pride in Diversity are specialists in HR, organisational change, and workplace diversity.

With a dedicated working group in the APAC, EMEA, and AMS regions, DEIB raises awareness and promotes education by listening to lived experiences, and advocates for policies and procedures to ensure PaperCut as a company provides a sense of inclusion and belonging for current and future employees.
