DISH operates within the male-dominated industry of technology. To combat the gender gap as we continue to grow in this sector, we have implemented a dedicated Diversity Sourcing Program Manager to ensure we are sourcing from diverse channels, removing gender-coded terminology from our job descriptions, providing training on unconscious bias throughout the interview process, and showcasing a diverse panel for interviews. Internally, we have a Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) team that supports our Employee Resource Groups and DEI support groups, champions DEI initiatives within the company and provides trainings, research, and professional development opportunities concerning DEI. Gender diversity is one of our priorities when we are recruiting and retaining top talent.
DISH has two internal groups that focus on advocating for women in their career growth and work-life balance, DISH Women's Network (DWN) and Empowered Parents Network (EPN). DWN is our company-wide employee resource group dedicated to supporting women while Empowered Parents Network (EPN) supports working parents and caregivers. DWN's mission is to empower women to become leaders and create an inclusive work environment, supporting the growth and success of women on a personal and professional level. EPN’s mission is to offer a community with access to educational opportunities and resources empowering parents and caregivers who are building their career and family in sync with one another.
At DISH, we believe in creating an inclusive working environment and encourage our teammates to work in the office. However, we offer several career opportunities that offer the flexibility of working remotely, hybrid, or possibly part-time.
