Our Global Community: What D&I Means at AvePoint


In a recent post, I reflect on the power of human connection, inclusion, and collaboration. Together, these help us to achieve more.

But let’s focus here on the importance of inclusion and diversity in the workplace. Having people with diverse backgrounds and viewpoints helps us to innovate and succeed at AvePoint. We value an organizational culture that celebrates creativity and expression. We all need to feel welcomed in our environments to embrace our uniqueness and to be productive and happy.

Check out the video below to hear my story, the culture we’re building at AvePoint, and some of our recent D&I initiatives:

Dr. Tianyi (TJ) Jiang oversees product strategy and business development for AvePoint’s global businesses, and is one of the main architects in guiding AvePoint’s evolution to become a Collaboration Enabler, focusing on helping enterprises in their digitization journey to enable employees to collaborate with confidence. Prior to co-founding AvePoint, TJ’s career focus was on designing and implementing fix-income trading systems, global equity program trading platforms, credit risk modeling, and conducting research in Data Mining. A recipient of Ernst & Young’s Entrepreneur of the Year award in New Jersey in 2010, TJ received both B.S. and Masters in Electrical and Computer Engineering from Cornell University, and a Master of Philosophy and PhD in Data Mining from Department of Information Systems, Operations Management, and Statistics, Stern School of Business, New York University.
