Altair (Nasdaq: ALTR), a global leader in computational intelligence, announced that it has received the 2024 Google Cloud North America Partner of the Year Award for Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI). Altair is being recognized for its achievements in the Google Cloud ecosystem in its DEI initiatives, specifically for demonstrating a commitment to fostering diversity and inclusion, for addressing challenges related to attracting and retaining female and minority employees, and for continuously working to mitigate social and organizational biases. 

“Google Cloud's Partner Awards celebrate the transformative impact and value that partners have delivered for customers, through inclusion initiatives,” said Kevin Ichhpurani, corporate vice president, Global Ecosystem and Channels, Google Cloud. “We're proud to announce Altair as a 2024 Google Cloud Partner Award winner and recognize their achievements as diversity enriches our teams and communities.”
