At Cognitive, we believe in the value of your identity, background and experiences. We are committed to promoting an inclusive culture, where everyone feels inspired to do amazing work because they are accepted, respected, and that they belong.  Cognitive is committed to continuing to make diversity, equity, and inclusion part of everything we do—from how we deliver services to how we build our workforce.

We believe in the power of trust, open communication, responsibility, integrity, and respect.  We believe every employee is responsible for the success of the company and that every employee needs to feel safe, seen, and heard in order to contribute their best work.

We recognize the social unrest, divisiveness, and long term effects of racial injustice in our country.  And while we may be a small company, we are committed to challenging ourselves to find substantive ways we can address inequality and injustice in the communities and projects in which we are a part of.

As a US Government professional services contractor, we comply with Affirmative Action Policies as specified by the Department of Labor (https://www.dol.gov/general/topic/hiring/affirmativeact).  As such, we capture and report Diversity, Equity and Inclusion (DEI) information.  We’re proud of our record in supporting Affirmative Action and DEI and, in that spirit, as of December 2021 we are publishing our first DEI Scorecard which represents our employee in calendar year 2021 in the charts below.
Diversity Scorecard
As Cognitive evolves and grows and as corporations in the US begin to standardize on DEI Scorecards in general, we will update the information on this webpage.  At a minimum, we’re committed to publishing this information on our website and to our employees yearly.
