In April 2022 Convergint’s VP of Global Accounts in EMEA Brenda Koesterman presented at The Security Event at the National Exhibition Centre in Birmingham. This session was focused on growth through inclusion & diversity, highlighting Convergint’s mission of becoming the most equitable and inclusive global service provider.

Converginet strives to foster a supportive, accessible, and inclusive environment in which individuals of different backgrounds and identities are able to realise their maximum potential within the company. Convergint recognises that  Inclusion & Diversity (I&D) create many opportunities for colleagues along with establishing competitive advantages for the company. As Convergint continues to evolve, hiring and bringing in a more diverse, talented workforce will enable the company to continue to achieve growth milestones.

As a female, starting in the industry in 1997, I’ve always been aware of how challenging diversity and inclusion is within the security market.  One of the Convergint Values and Beliefs I am most proud of is we embrace a safe, inclusive, and positive work environment. This value truly lived out daily through our leadership with a dedicated VP of Inclusion & Diversity, and it shows in our widely diversified colleague mix.
