The TMRGs are open to all team members, regardless of whether they identify with the group’s focus, gladly accepting ally membership. The company provides funding and resources to support the TMRGs, including meeting spaces, training, and events.
The launch of the TMRGs proved an instant success. Team members who join TMRGs report feeling more connected to the company and their colleagues. They also report feeling more supported and empowered to bring their whole selves to work, aligning with Altair’s value of authenticity. So, it was no surprise when in 2022, two additional TMRGs emerged:
LIFE – Leaning In For the Environment
POWER – Promoting Opportunities for Women to Excel and Rise
The LIFE TMRG has been instrumental in generating and supporting Environmental, Social, and Governance (ESG) initiatives – read more on our CATALYST initiative here. The POWER TMRG recently held a five-week Celebrating Women Who Tell Our Stories series highlighting the journeys of women leaders at Altair.
Team members can submit a request to form a TMRG at any time provided they have at minimum five active team members, three leadership roles identified for the TMRG, and a mission and purpose. They then submit their application to the Diversity Council for organizational support. This year we added another TMRG with a focus on supporting our veterans and their families:
VALOR – Veterans & Allies Leading Organizational Results
