Our ambitions

We recognise that diversity encompasses an equally diverse range of things, including; cognitive perspectives, education, work experiences, personal life experiences, race, gender, ethnicity, sexual orientation as well as many more. We strive to make active and positive change in all these areas and have identified three to enact major change.

As a key player in the ICT/tech industry, increasing women’s representation across technical, commercial and delivery roles is a key area of focus.
We understand that representation matters. As a worldwide provider, we therefore want to be sure that we are representative of the employees we are hiring.
The digital divide is widening, and it is important that we all have access to the solutions and products that our company provides, we want to represent everyone.
