✨ Community. Mentorship. Representation. These are the unifying threads of the Autodesk Black Network (ABN), a pillar of Autodesk’s Employee Resource Group program. Autodesk is building a culture where everyone has an equal opportunity to thrive. And by amplifying Black voices in the workplace, they’re driving impactful business results, including increased revenue + retention.

About Autodesk: From the greenest buildings to the cleanest cars, from the smartest factories to the biggest stories, amazing things are created every day with Autodesk. Over four decades, they’ve worked together with their customers to transform how things are made, and in doing so, have transformed what can be made.

Today, Autodesk’s solutions span countless industries empowering innovators everywhere. But they’re restless to do more. They don’t believe in waiting for progress, they believe in making it. By combining and recombining technologies. By blurring boundaries, reinventing rules, and merging fields. By unleashing talent and unlocking insights across industries. By helping customers converge on solutions to the challenges we all face today. At Autodesk, they believe that when you have the right tools to work and think flexibly, you have the power to transform what actually needs making. The power to design and make a better world for all. Check them out on Instagram HERE.

Jewels Wall
Jewels Wall
Associate Technical Support Specialist, AutoCAD

This is my first year with Autodesk, a part of our Customer Technical Success Team for AutoCAD products.

I am grateful to work in such a productive environment where we are encouraged to live authentically and where our career growth is fully supported.

Before I am anything, I am a mother. Autodesk helps me be the best mom I can be with a healthy work-to-life balance and support in all areas of career growth.

Having communities within a large global entity, such as Autodesk Black Network, helps to network with people who might have similar life experiences and provide career mentorship too.
