At Thoma Bravo, we champion diversity of thought and background, promote inclusion and partnership, and celebrate entrepreneurship and innovation. We are a firm that prides itself on operational and financial rigor, creativity and ingenuity. As a firm, we foster this approach by staying true to who we are. This ethos underpins our commitment to ESG and shapes how we view our responsibility as investors, owners and partners with our portfolio companies.
We take seriously the role we can play in influencing the impact our software and technology businesses have on society, and we engage with our management teams to integrate ESG considerations through governance and transparency. Our intense focus on value creation for our companies and investors is driven by collaborative partnerships that produce operational excellence and innovation. We believe this value creation extends beyond financial results and into the more than 60,000-person workforce our companies employ and the communities in which they operate.
Across Thoma Bravo, our employees care deeply about the communities in which we live and work, and we are excited to support this passion through our Charitable Giving Program.
In addition to financial support, we foster a culture that promotes and values social impact, and our employees share a dedication to making a difference within our communities. We encourage and empower our people to champion their unique causes in addition to the initiatives and programs that Thoma Bravo sponsors and supports.
