Meet Ruth James, Tech Outreach & Engage Coordinator here at Xero. We asked Ruth what diversity and inclusion means to her. Here’s what she had to say: “For me, the ultimate goal is to enable and support others to flourish and be accepted for who they are regardless of their background, race, culture, and religion. As a Kiwi, I look at what’s happening currently in the U.S. as an example of what happens when there are systemic issues around race. I’ve also had many conversations with friends and family who’ve told me of their own experiences of exclusion and aggression and it serves as a wake-up call that racism, homophobia, sexism, and islamophobia are still very prevalent. It’s really made me aware of my privilege and the responsibility I have to be an ally.” Learn more about Xero’s social and environmental impact, including diversity and inclusion → https://bit.ly/xerosocialimpact

For Xero, our focus is to build a scalable and sustainable business, and that includes taking responsibility for our environmental impact. Hear from Ryan Ghisi, GM - Global People Programmes about what respecting the planet's resources means to him: 'Each of us have a responsibility to positively impact the environment through our actions and choices. Whether its how much water we use, the food we eat, or how we travel, we all can make a difference. I care deeply about both the beautiful country I live in and the wider world, so want to ensure that I do my part to leave an impact.'
