Change Catalyst’s Tech Inclusion event

Publish date:

Last week Capgemini sponsored a Tech Inclusion event run by Change Catalyst who partner with the tech community to solve diversity and inclusion together through conferences, career fairs, strategic consulting and training.

The event was a fantastic opportunity for Capgemini to really be seen as a thought leader when it comes to our Active Inclusion agenda. Over the course of the last couple of years, we have worked tirelessly across a number of initiatives, from recruitment to learning & development, to ensure our we are hiring the right talent and educating our people to foster an inclusive workplace.

Throughout the day we heard from a number of thought leaders in the inclusion space, from leading global companies to passionate individuals, all with one common goal – making the world a better place.

It was encouraging to see Capgemini invited to become a sponsor following the success of our Black History month feature in Worthing, and our UK International Men’s Day series. Not only that, but to see how far Capgemini has come over the course of the last couple of years to work with individuals from all walks of life; something that was repeatedly mentioned as being critical to success.

A few of the standout speakers on the day included:

We had many people visit the Capgemini stand throughout the day, our #BeYourOwnRoleModel t-shirts were a great hit with attendees. We were able to share our experiences and gain a raft of new ideas to help us with our own Active Inclusion agenda. Laura Gardner, from our Active Inclusion team, commented: “It was such a passionate, powerful event – bringing the tech industry together to consider diversity and intersectionality in all it forms, and more importantly, discussing solutions and ideas to further inclusion. It was a brilliant day to be involved in and to continue to raise our profile around inclusion in our industry.”

Looking ahead to 2018, watch this space for the next phase of Active Inclusion – empowering everyone with examples of everyday actions that we can all take to continue to make our workplace more inclusive.
