At BlackLine, diversity, equity, and inclusion are deeply rooted in our core values in service of our global workforce, our customers, and the communities in which we work and live. We are inspired every day by contributions from employees across all levels of our company.

Empowering Women at BlackLine

It’s March—time for the international celebration of Women’s History Month. One of the many ways BlackLine supports women is through our employee resource groups (ERG), including BREW (BlackLine Resources for Empowering Women), which is a member-run women's professional network. BREW’s mission is to create a support system and a sense of community among our women colleagues and promote organic opportunities for professional development and mentorship. With our core values of inclusivity and connection, BREW fosters and enables engagement with the community that surrounds us, striving to advance all women and girls in their educational and professional pursuits.

Karole Morgan-Prager, BlackLine chief legal and administrative officer and executive sponsor of BREW, says, “when women are lifted up, society as a whole benefits. Whether it’s educating girls or making sure that women have equal opportunities in the workforce and in their communities, all of society benefits from that.”

“BREW was our first ERG and Therese Tucker [BlackLine’s Founder and Executive Chair] put a lot of energy into getting it off the ground. BREW does a lot of good within BlackLine, but there is also an outward looking aspect as well—educating girls, our internship programs, giving back to the community. I’m really proud of the organization and proud of what it’s done for the women of BlackLine.”

BlackLine and BREW are celebrating Women’s History Month by offering BlackLine employees several opportunities to learn more about Women’s History Month, connect with fellow BlackLiners, and engage in conversations.

Events include:

  • A coffee break, sponsored by BREW, that provides an opportunity to connect, discuss, and learn about International Women’s Day

  • A webinar with Dr. Susan Lovelle to discuss how to adopt practices that are valuable for your well-being without feeling like you’re trying to fit one more thing into an already jam-packed day

  • A meditation class honoring this year’s theme of Women's History Month—Providing Healing, Promoting Hope

BlackLine is proud to honor and empower the women in our company and be a positive influence in our communities.

Supporting Women in Tech

As a technology company, we recognize it’s important to empower all employees in a diverse and equitable workplace. Everyone should feel they belong and can fully contribute. It is essential to support women’s career progressions through sponsorships, development opportunities, and mentorships.

One way BlackLine is engaging more women in technology is by supporting educational opportunities to introduce, encourage, and support young people early on. Our internship program provides exposure for our technical and non-technical interns to career options in the tech space, while bridging the gap between our interns’ skills and the skills of tech careers.

About Women’s History Month

March is Women’s History Month—an international celebration and a time to recognize women’s contributions to history, culture, and society. Each year, the National Women’s History Alliance chooses a theme for the month. This year, it’s Providing Healing, Promoting Hope—a tribute to the ceaseless work of caregivers and frontline workers during the pandemic and a recognition of the ways that women of all cultures have provided healing and hope throughout history.
