The event, which will be broadcast from the Nasdaq MarketSite in Times Square and streamed live on Nasdaq.com and Facebook, celebrates Progress as a company that effectively executes on its Total Growth Strategy, while at the same time embracing Corporate Social Responsibility as a key tenet of its business.
“At Progress, our North Star is people, because people power Progress. We work hard to sustain our culture of belonging where people not only feel appreciated for what they do, but for who they are,” said Yogesh Gupta, CEO, Progress. “Having an inclusive culture engages every employee because they’re valued and respected.

Dedicated to propelling business forward in a technology-driven world, Progress helps businesses drive faster cycles of innovation, fuel momentum and accelerate their path to success by delivering products to develop the applications they need, deploy where and how they want and manage it all safely and securely. That is why hundreds of thousands of enterprises run their high-impact applications on Progress technology. Its focus on driving customer success is also why year-to-date, Progress is the 6th best-performing stock among the 113 companies in the iShares Expanded-Tech Software Sector ETF.
Success in business also requires more than delivering the best products and making customers successful—it requires driving social justice and economic equality for all.

Progress also fosters inclusion through its Women in STEM scholarship series, which supports the education of the next generation of technology leaders around the world.
