Driving diversity and inclusion

Fostering a diverse, inclusive, and empowered workforce that leverages skills, perspectives, and capabilities.  

Being BOLD

Bridging the Equality Gap, Orchestrating an inclusive culture, Lasting Change, and Diversity; this is UDTBOLD. It is our initiative to further drive diversity-awareness in our company and advocate for inclusion and equal opportunities for all.

At UDT, our vision is to foster a diverse and inclusive workforce that leverages the skills, perspectives, and capabilities that diversity and inclusion offer organizations. Diversity is more than just a policy for us; it is an important part of our history. As a Hispanic-owned company, UDT is committed to deepening diversity across our organization and promoting an inclusive culture that capitalizes on a diverse and empowered workforce’s aggregate power.


UDTBOLD stands by 5 core principles that define how we aim to drive change:   


and hire from a diverse candidate pool. 


all qualified employees, regardless of gender, race, color, religion, age, sexual orientation, national origin, disability, or veteran status, to ensure an organizational culture that embraces all. 


all employees to make significant impacts to the organization and the communities they serve.


qualified employees into leadership positions across the organization


the importance of diversity and inclusion within the organization and to our suppliers, partners, and other external stakeholders. 


One of our primary goals is to continue advocating for women and technology and fostering growth in this area. UDTNOW (The UDT Network of Women) is a UDTBOLD program designed to create networking, mentoring, and leadership opportunities for women. We aim to encourage involvement and provide support while enriching women’s experiences.
