Virtans for Diversity (VFD) is a community dedicated to advancing equality, accessibility and inclusion for employees and patients at Virta. Founded in the values of Safety, Community, Data-Driven, and Action, VFD believes every Virtan is entitled to an equitable opportunity to participate and succeed. Fostering an environment of inclusion & trust will help us achieve our company mission to reverse type 2 diabetes in 100 million by 2025.
The Ladies of Virta group (LoV) seeks to create an inclusive environment that encourages and supports women through connection, mentorship, collaboration, and discussion. Through our five focus areas: mentorship, advocacy, educational programming, communications, and social events, LoV strives to create opportunities for career mentorship, build cross-functional relationships, provide learning opportunities within and outside of Virta, and to represent LoV interests in company decisions.
It is essential to Virta to support the families and loved ones who uplift our Employees everyday. We provide an array of benefits to support our employees and their families like: paid parental leave—16 weeks at 100% pay with no need to file with the state. We also offer parental support through our partnership with Cleo and other childcare benefits. Virta provides the space for Virta parents to communicate, support one another and share best practices.
The Green Committee strives to ensure that we care for our environment as we care for our patients by coordinating trainings for all employees, and promoting sustainable habits through the Virta offices and practices in our daily lives.
Virta created an "Engineering Women" group to connect and support female identifying Virtans who write code or are interested in writing code across our various teams, including engineering leadership. We provide a safe space to better promote women in engineering, both within and outside of Virta. Some of our activities in this effort include actively participating in our engineering mentorship program and providing an interview workshop for women interested in software engineering!
