About Us

Global Impact

Our commitment to bettering our local and global communities is a hallmark of Spaulding Ridge.

How Can We Make the World a Better Place?

It’s this question that acts as our daily compass. We are global citizens. This is our shared world — what are we doing if not striving to make it better? We’ve discovered that business can indeed be a force for good, and we’re using our technology and business strategy expertise to do just that.

By helping other businesses succeed, by creating an inclusive and satisfying work environment, by supporting communities with our time, and providing resource to organizations that deliver critical services to the world — we hope to leave this world a better place for all.

Putting Our Values Front and Center

Passive statements sound good on paper, but what meaning do they hold if there isn’t action to back them up?

At Spaulding Ridge, we’re deeply committed to world-changing initiatives that help create a more inclusive, equitable world.

Women
Women in Tech

With Women Elevate (WE) we connect women in technology, offering resources and community to our internal people, our channel partners, and our clients.

Food Security
Food Security

Every year, our teams give back to local communities by partnering with organizations provide food access and distribution to communities in need. No one should go hungry.

Heart
Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion

We stand together with our black communities united against racism, the senseless and unjustified murder of people of color, and the persistence of systemic racism. We have partnered with United Chicago to help educate us and hold ourselves accountable. We have also partnered with Correlation One to recruit and work with the next generation of talented individuals.

Climate Change

Our world requires vigilance as we approach — and pass by — what scientists call red lines for climate change. We strive to conduct an environmentally conscious business.

Making A Difference Takes Action, Not Words

We’re not here to hide behind corporate messaging. We are here to listen. We are here to learn. We are here to do our part to create a more equitable world, to stand behind our statements.

Right to Protest

Taking lessons from President Obama’s essay on George Floyd’s murder, we are committed to the freedom of expression, and we support everyone’s right to protest and communicate beliefs openly.

DE&I Council

Having a diverse team isn’t enough; we must foster an environment of inclusivity to truly embrace differences. Our recruitment and hiring process, mentoring, and day-to-day discussions are bolstered by the formation of our Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion council.

Zero Tolerance

Racism and discrimination of any kind, whether explicit or implicit, is not tolerated at Spaulding Ridge. We promote an environment of kindness and respect at every turn and make space for safe discussions.

Active Citizenry

Passivity is unacceptable. Making change, making the world a better place, takes action. We measure our success in these initiatives by the time and financial support we dedicate, and we align our support to our community investments.

Fighting Injustice Through Advocacy, Litigation, and Public Education

In support of these goals, we’ve chosen to donate $10,000 to the NAACP Legal Defense Fund. It’s just the first of many steps we’re taking. But we know there’s more to do; it’s on us to continue to support our people and communities in every facet of our business — even, and perhaps most especially, when no one is looking.

Let’s take this opportunity to stand together in solidarity against all forms of racism, prejudice, and hate while also promoting love and quality for all.
