Health Catalyst Named to 2020 Shatter List for Helping Break Glass Ceiling in Technology
Health Catalyst recognized for third consecutive year by Women Tech Council for measures that transform technology culture
SALT LAKE CITY, UTAH March 5, 2020—In honor of International Women’s Day, Health Catalyst, Inc. (“Health Catalyst,” Nasdaq: HCAT), a leading provider of data and analytics technology and services to healthcare organizations, today announced it has been named to the Women Tech Council (WTC) 2020 Shatter List. This recognition highlights companies with initiatives that help break the glass ceiling for women in technology.
“The Shatter List is designed to measure the policies, practices and organizations that are creating real impact for women in tech,” said Cydni Tetro, President of WTC. “These organization-wide, holistic solutions to actively create gender-inclusive environments and teams make impact not only for those within an organization, but throughout the technology community by helping advance women across the entire sector.”
Each company on the 2020 list develops and implements efforts that create gender-inclusive cultures where women can contribute and succeed in their careers. The 2020 list marks the third time for Health Catalyst, having also received this honor in 2019 and 2018.
“We are grateful to once again be named on Women Tech Council’s Shatter List, along with so many well-respected organizations that are advancing and supporting women in their workplaces,” said Dan Burton, Chief Executive Officer of Health Catalyst. “We are honored to receive this recognition, which is made possible by our passionate and hard-working team members and our principles driven, values-based, inclusive culture we strive to maintain.”
The Shatter List was developed as part of WTC’s diversity and inclusion program and commitment to help build high-performing environments where men and women can succeed and drive company success. To make the Shatter List, Health Catalyst was evaluated and scored against hundreds of technology companies on four key criteria: executive engagement, company programming, community investment and women’s or D&I groups. Health Catalyst demonstrated active, visible activities at all company levels and showed commitment and progress in these four areas.
“I am grateful for the principles we’ve applied to make the necessary decisions and changes to drive progress for women on our team, which include: respect, humility, transparency and advocacy,” said Linda Llewelyn, Chief People Officer at Health Catalyst. “These principles, combined with our proactive candidate outreach, have increased Health Catalyst’s female applicants. Today, 36 percent of team members are female. We are incredibly proud and humbled by the level of talent we’ve been able to attract to help transform healthcare.”
To date, Health Catalyst’s executive leadership team includes seven women, which is one third of its executive team, and its board of directors includes three women. Some examples of steps that the company has taken to advance women in technology include signing the ParityPledge, starting an employee resource group (ERG) called Women Empowered (WE) that is dedicated to supporting and advocating for female leadership opportunities and regularly sponsoring a scholarship program for young women pursuing careers in tech with bootcamp school partner DevMountain.
