IDEA Alliance


Who We Are

We are a cross-company team dedicated to identifying and driving initiatives that will strengthen Inclusion, Diversity, Equity, and Awareness (IDEA) for our organization. The IDEA Alliance is made up of more than 30 employees, including two designated Champions and an Executive Sponsor.

Our Philosophy

Security through diverse and inclusive communities.

At CIS, we are committed to providing an inclusive environment in which the diverse backgrounds, experiences, and views of our employees, members, and customers are valued and respected. It is through this commitment that we are able to work together towards our common mission: to make the connected world a safer place.

Our Leadership Principle

Cultivate diversity through inclusion.

Leaders foster an environment of diversity, equity, and inclusion in order to maximize the potential of our most precious resource—our people. They understand that producing exceptional results requires experiences and perspectives from diverse backgrounds. Leaders value, leverage, and honor these differences, while uniting people around common mission goals.
