Simplicity has a dynamic, supportive, and upbeat company culture where all teams are accessible and engaged, as well as challenged and inspired to develop and grow.
Women make up 75% of our HQ staff and consultant community, and we endeavor to foster an inclusive, supportive environment to help everyone find their personal definition of success.
At Simplicity, our approach to diversity and inclusion is rooted in helping everyone thrive in this new world of work one conversation at a time. We strive to build a culture of connection and belonging where everyone is empowered to make an impact. We are committed to developing a diverse workforce of exceptional talent to catalyze heroic success - for our clients, our consultants, and our community.
We’re certified as a Women’s Business Enterprise with the Women’s Business Enterprise National Council (WBENC), and we support women in business through partnerships with the University of Washington Bothell Women’s Leadership Camp and Cal Poly. We support other women- and minority-run businesses in our community, and participate in local events such as the Seattle WiT Regatta, Women in Cloud Summit, and IAMCPT WiT.
