diversity and inclusion

We’re breaking down barriers to a better future.

At Capgemini, we believe a workplace where everyone feels valued for who they are isn’t just a powerful moral responsibility – it’s also a source of competitive advantage. By having a diverse workforce that represents our society, and by fostering an inclusive culture, we’re building a place where our people can thrive. 
 
That’s why we’re working with global and local organizations and our own employees to ensure we create equal opportunities for all, address bias in the workplace, and equip all our managers with the skills to be truly inclusive leaders.

“IT IS OUR CONVICTION THAT A DIVERSE, EQUITABLE, AND INCLUSIVE ENVIRONMENT MAKES FOR A MORE RESILIENT, AGILE, AND SUCCESSFUL COMPANY.”

Shobha Meera, Chief Corporate Social Responsibility Officer

Our objectives

"Take Pride, Take Action"

As a company committed to creating an inclusive and sustainable future for our planet, our people and society, Capgemini has made strides in supporting the LGBT+ community. We also want to continue our journey of inclusion for all.

“Take Pride, Take Action” is an opportunity for us to highlight all of these remarkable milestones, the progressive policies we are building, the education we are providing to our employees, and the collaborative culture we are developing to create a better future for the LGBT+ community and its allies. Our goal is to inspire others and organizations to take positive action to create an inclusive world for all.

Building an inclusive environment

From inclusion surveys and unconscious bias training to internal global employee networks and engagement initiatives, we seek to understand the needs, and hear the voices, of all our people. 

Women are key to shaping the future of the digital economy, whether in technology, business, or client-facing roles. 
 
We have launched an ambitious program focused on improving female representation in recruiting, providing mentoring opportunities, and supporting women at key moments in their professional and personal lives. We have committed to having women make up 40% of our workforce by the end of 2025, with 30% female representation on our executive leadership teams. Right now, 30% of vice president-level promotions and new hires are women. 

As a founding member of the World Economic Forum’s Partnering for Racial Justice in Business initiative, we are committed to building an equitable environment for professionals from under-represented minorities and eradicating racism in the workplace.

In the UK, for example, we have signed the Race at Work Charter from Business in the Community, an organization dedicated to responsible business. While in the US, we have created the Inclusion Leadership Advisory Council to promote the representation and advancement of black, Hispanic, and Asian employees globally.

Capgemini is part of Valuable 500, a global network of CEOs committed to the inclusion of individuals with physical or mental impairments.

This partnership promotes better workplace accessibility, providing support for caregivers, and offering several programs encouraging the hiring of people with limitations and ensuring equal opportunities for them.

Capgemini facilitates a safe environment that respects all sexual orientations: lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer along with their allies. Since 2007, we have been expanding our OUTfront global employee network, whose mission is to provide a forum for education and awareness supporting the professional growth and recognition of LGBT+ people. OUTfront currently operates in 21 countries.

As of 2021, our managers and executives participate in inclusive leadership training, including a workshop on unconscious bias, to develop new mindsets and behaviors. This training is designed to help our people to recognize any biases they have, understand the impact they have on decision-making, and address them in order to ensure an inclusive and productive culture.

    Be who you need to be? Or just be you?

    We believe that diversity combined with active inclusion enables innovation and produces value that benefits everyone.
