our mission

We are powered by connecting people, and our mission is to help people thrive and companies grow.

Ajna originated from a legacy of changing lives. We began as the brainchild of a recruitment team that wanted to do better, for more people, all the time.

Culture is moving toward a new normal. After decades of deep division and widespread inequity, we suddenly find ourselves at a pivotal moment. Coming out of pandemic chaos, lockdowns, and civil protests, the fabric of culture is moving. The role of work has become a central theme in this shift to a wider, more diverse, and equitable world.

Ajna is stepping in and providing seekers on both sides of the equation the technology needed to start and sustain a change to remove bias from hiring and the work ecosystem.

people are the spirit of every company
