There has long been a gender imbalance within the IT industry, and Capgemini is directly addressing the issue: working hard not only to boost the numbers of women in senior tech roles, but to inspire the next generation of young women into STEM subjects and careers.
We have showed resilience and agility throughout COVID19 – and we are proud to have continued to drive our gender and inclusion strategy throughout the business uncertainty, listening and engaging to mitigate the longer-term impact of the pandemic on its people.
Our progress in this space has led to recognition from a number of acclaimed organisations, including:
- Being named in the Times Top 50 Employers for Women consecutively for the last 5 years; in 2020, named in the top ten percent of companies over the last decade; in 2021, Bal Gill, Head of Employee Experience and Inclusion quoted in the Times report: “Treat inclusion as any other business priority and strive to raise the bar, year on year. The world is evolving and we must ensure we do too. And ensure that respect forms a key part of our approach: we can’t create a truly inclusive culture without it.”
- Achieving the EDGE Assess certification for gender equality in 2017 and EDGE Move certification in 2019
- Featured in Business In The Community’s 2021 Gender Equality Route Map Case Studies with a case study on recruitment
- Won Best Tech Employer (over 500 employees) and shortlisted for Best Employer for Flexible Working in the Women in Tech Employer Awards 2020
Capgemini UK also runs the Relaunch@Capgemini Programme to support talented professionals to transition from an extended career break back into the workplace. The six-month returnship programme provides meaningful experience, coaching and mentoring support, a community of others in the same situation, with the possibility of a permanent role at the end.
