Corporate Partner Spotlight

Apptio continues to expand its presence in the Seattle technical community, and is taking a stronger emphasis on diversity and inclusion to further enable the overall employee experience. As part of this increased focus, Apptio hosted the Seattle Girl Geek Dinner group on Thursday, August 20 to provide women in technology with the opportunity to network and share best practices about advancing career development, while also learning more about this growing organization.

All of Us Should Care About Women's Equality Day

The waiting game. It's something that many have become all too familiar with or even expect. Whether it's watching Loretta Lynch become the first African-American woman to hold the U.S. Attorney General's Office, or the "wow" factor in seeing rainbow hues across the White House following the Supreme Court's same-sex marriage ruling - the wait can often lead to a monumental outcome.
