We are excited to continue to build our culture of diversity, equity and inclusion through education, engagement, and transparency. We have employees, vendors and guests that have different identities and we want to make sure that we are a safe space for them to be respected for exactly who they are and the value they bring to the organization. In alignment with our values, we want to not only recognize, but celebrate, the many different facets of VNation’s diversity.

We encourage anyone that hasn’t explored our site to do so and submit your feedback and suggestions, access our existing resources, and join one of our employee resource groups. DE&I is essential in our culture here at Victra and we would love for you to be part of that.

Being part of our ERGs, you will gain access to exclusive events, awareness and education, as well as being able to contribute to company DE&I initiatives and connect and collaborate with people in all areas and levels of the organization. We look forward to connecting with you!
