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 85,000-person workforce our companies employ and the communities in which they operate.*

In 2022, Thoma Bravo became a signatory of the UN Principles for Responsible Investing (PRI), the world’s leading proponent of responsible investment. We are committed to adopting and implementing these six ESG-focused principles, where consistent with our fiduciary responsibilities.
Thoma Bravo has a passion and commitment to diversity, and inclusion and believes they are critical to our ability to realize our full potential as a firm and partner. We recognize that providing access and opportunity to students and young adults is another critical component to increasing diversity within the industries in which we operate: private equity and technology. To help us achieve this goal, we are proud to partner with organizations that share a similar purpose and passion for closing the opportunity gap for underrepresented individuals. In particular, we are honored to partner with Sponsors for Educational Opportunity (SEO) to launch a first-ever tech internship program to provide diverse college students with access to paid internships at our portfolio companies.

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.
