- A mission-driven culture devoted to improving outcomes for young children and families
At LENA, diverse perspectives are essential to achieving our mission of equal opportunity for all children.

With a learning mindset, we’re committed to cultivating a diverse team and an equitable and inclusive work environment that is welcoming,
respectful, and encouraging to all.
LENA’s external and internal commitments to diversity, equity, and inclusion are explicitly woven into our core values.

Our core values
PROACTIVE THROUGH DATA
We value the power of data to reveal truths, inform decisions, and advance our mission.
GET IT IN THE IRON
We’re entrepreneurial risk takers who are okay operating with incomplete information: let’s find out if we’re right and then change course when we’re not.
WE’RE MORE THAN JUST TECHNOLOGY
Real change only happens through people. We come alongside our partners to blend technology, people, and setting to pursue a more just society together.
PERSEVERE TO SIMPLE
We try to make things simple no matter how difficult that is.
HIGH STANDARDS, LOW EGOS
We all strive to perform at consistently high levels without taking ourselves too seriously. We are committed to seeking missing perspectives and supporting a team that represents a variety of backgrounds, identities, and skills because the more inclusive we are, the better our work will be.
