We believe that empowering each individual authentic voice encourages an entrepreneurial mindset. We’ve created a culture where our diversities and experiences are embraced and essential to our success.
At Altair, we don’t just talk about diversity, we work tirelessly to achieve it. I don’t just mean gender diversity, but also religious, ethnic and cultural diversity. Since we founded Altair almost 40 years ago, I have worked alongside many leaders at Altair to create environments where brilliant people from all walks of life can exchange ideas and inspiration. It makes Altair a place where “a-ha” moments are born.
