At Renaissance our mission is: “To accelerate learning for all children and adults of all ability levels and ethnic and social backgrounds, worldwide.” Many of us choose to work at Renaissance because we are driven by this mission. 

Inherent in a mission that strives to serve “all children and adults” who represent “all ability levels...and backgrounds,” is the need to recognize the importance of Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) in our culture, in our work, and in our products. 

Frequently cited statistics show that women and underrepresented minorities will only apply to roles if they feel they meet 100% of the qualifications.  At Renaissance, we encourage you to break through that statistic.  Roles evolve over time, especially with innovation, and you may be just the person we need into the future.  NO ONE ever meets 100% of the qualifications.  We hope you're open to learning new skills in order to grow with us.  Make our team, your team!
