Without top-down dedication and support, there would be little motivation for employees to take risks, ask questions or stretch themselves to achieve more than they originally thought they were capable of. Viasat may not operate under a conventional career roadmap, but the company and its leaders prioritize empowering employees to be the drivers in their own careers.
From mentorship and sponsorship to year-round Learning & Development programs, Viasat promotes a holistic approach to career development and makes a variety of people and programs available to equip employees with the resources they need to succeed.
During this chat, we want you to walk away feeling inspired by the woman who capitalized on career opportunities and conquered many milestones to stand where she does today, and feel motivated by the level of importance our male leadership has placed on women in the workforce, career development and our inclusion efforts.
