Women in Rugby program

As a Global Partner of the Women in Rugby program, we support the Women in Rugby Leadership program. This identifies and develops the current and next generation of female leaders in the world of rugby, enabling inspirational role models to fulfil their potential and create further parity across the game. Each year, 12 scholars are granted access to the best learning programs from the Capgemini University.

As a global leader in digital transformation, with over 350,000 employees in more than 50 countries, we are well positioned to bring our long-established expertise in taking top talent to the next level to the Women in Rugby Leadership program.

We are deeply committed to promoting equal opportunities both in tech and in rugby, on and off the pitch. As part of our ESG commitments, we have set an ambitious objective to reach 30% of women in executive leadership positions at Capgemini by 2025, and our University is a key tool for us to grow top female talent
