Ethena Enhances Best-in-Class Compliance Training

NEW YORK, NY (July 2021) — Organizational culture and compliance startup Ethena announced today that it will work with global law firm Baker McKenzie to strengthen the best-in-class training content it utilizes to help clients build more ethical and inclusive workplaces. The firm's expertise also will help Ethena develop new courses.

Ethena’s user-friendly, research-based approach helps organizations address employment and regulatory requirements through “small bites'' learning nudges. Once the primary training requirements are met, the nudges go further, providing companies with access to a monthly continuous learning program that helps build and nourish inclusive, sustainable cultures.

Ethena’s programs help clients address regulatory requirements as they change in real time, both in the United States and around the world.

“We’re thrilled to be working with Baker McKenzie as our innovative approach to compliance training increasingly gains momentum.” said Roxanne Petraeus, Ethena Co-founder and CEO. “With the firm's help, we feel confident that the companies we support will continue to enjoy a best-in-class experience on Ethena.”

Initially offering harassment prevention training, Ethena has expanded quickly, adding new programs and learning options including Anti-Bribery & Anti-Corruption, Diversity, Equity & Inclusion, and Hiring & Interviewing. The team recently raised $15.5M Series A led by Felicis Ventures to support product and company growth.

A company using Ethena could reasonably expect to face fewer enforcement actions and to be less vulnerable to liability for sexual harassment."
