Clio is striving to become an anti-racist organization and is actively working to identify and oppose unconscious biases and change the behaviors, beliefs, and systemic issues that perpetuate racist ideas, actions, and practices. To support these efforts, Clio is prioritizing company initiatives that drive Diversity, Inclusion, Belonging, and Equity (DIBE), and tracking progress towards achieving this goal. BPTN’s mission and approach align with the transformation Clio aims to accomplish—both internally and within the industry.

“BPTN is helping to create an industry that is representative of the communities in which we live and work, and we are proud to partner with an organization that is having a deep and meaningful impact on our industry,” said Jack Newton, CEO, and Co-founder of Clio. “In order to create the kind of change we want to see in the legal and tech industries, we have a responsibility to continuously become more diverse and inclusive as a company, which is why Clio is actively taking steps towards becoming an anti-racist organization. Being an anti-racist organization isn’t something you just ‘become’ but rather, a series of choices, practices, and commitments you have to make on an ongoing basis. This is just the beginning of our ongoing commitment to create a more equitable future for all.”

Clio’s partnership with BPTN will help expand its ability to hire, retain, and promote Black talent—and it will enable Clio to connect with BPTN’s network of Black tech professionals and contribute to their career growth. In addition to providing Black developers, engineers, sales, and marketing professionals with access to senior executive sponsorship, industry training, and a strong peer network to support their growth and development, BPTN helps technology companies hire and promote Black tech talent through pipeline building and internal culture development.

Clio’s partnership with BPTN will include a variety of culture and learning sessions hosted by BPTN to provide insight into the Black tech ecosystem and equip employees with actionable takeaways to create and maintain a more diverse and inclusive company culture. These sessions will help Clio build corporate solutions that are practical, sustainable, and scalable across the organization and aligned with Clio’s larger strategic goals and long-held commitment to Diversity, Inclusion, Belonging, and Equity. Clio leaders and the Talent Acquisition Team will also work directly with BPTN through a 6-month learning pod to identify talent acquisition goals and expand their networking engagement with Black tech professionals.

Clio has a vibrant culture for advancing diversity and inclusion and advocating for positive change within the company and community. Beyond the partnership with BPTN, Clio invests in company-wide educational workshops with leading external specialists, implements new technology to enable learning access, and actively looks for new ways to recruit, hire, and retain a workforce representative of the world in which we live. Clio’s executive leadership sponsors an employee-led DIBE Council, which oversees company-wide discussion groups on DIBE topics and leads the formation of Employee Resource Groups (ERGs), which are safe spaces for members of shared identity groups within the company.
