One Patra is for everyone
One Patra is for everyone, and we are committed to fostering a workplace of belonging.

Message from our CEO
“As a global company, we must advocate and promote human rights through a diversified lens. While discrimination, equity, and bias are universal – they can be experienced differently globally.
To effectively promote Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion, a “one size fits all” DE&I model is not for Patra. Instead, we’ve implemented a DE&I model to evolve, progress, drive awareness and social change, and hold ourselves accountable through transparency. It’s structured to continuously engage in a deep understanding of the culture and context of all the regions we work in to ensure we are driving the most meaningful, inclusive, and diverse employee experiences across our global workforce and the communities our employees reside.
Patra employees are the heart of this organization, and I am committed to ensuring employees feel respected, safe, and valued.
We are One Patra.”
John Simpson, CEO
