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

We have set objectives to reach:

– 40% of women in our teams by 2025

– 30% of women in executive leadership positions in 2025


– 20% of our US workforce will be underrepresented minorities by 2025

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 commit to leverage our power as a global leader to dismantle systemic racism at Capgemini and in our communities. We strive to design a racially equitable workplace for all our colleagues, clients, and partners. In the US, we are taking action to eliminate the structures within our walls that contribute to injustice and discrimination, including increasing participation in our Black and Hispanic retention programs. We have multiple Employee Resource Groups devoted to developing, retaining, and celebrating our diverse employees. Each year, we celebrate Martin Luther King Jr. Day with a day of service to give back to the community.

We invest in leadership development, training, and mentorship that aligns with individual goals. These provide robust environments of eLearning, virtual sessions, and classroom training to aid employees from the basics to obtaining certifications. We have retention and sponsorship programs targeted at our diverse talent and all leaders are required to complete unconscious bias training. This is designed to help our people recognize bias they may have and understand the impact unconscious bias can have on decision-making so they can create a more inclusive and productive culture.

Employee Resource Groups (ERGs) at Capgemini are voluntary, employee-led centers of excellence for development, retention, engagement, recruiting, and knowledge sharing. Collectively, they bring different perspectives with a focus on fostering diversity and inclusion across the region. ERG’s help us cultivate a work culture of respect and value for differences, enabling people to collaboratively deliver innovative solutions.

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.

We are proud to support those who have bravely served our country. We do this by investing in career transitions for US Veterans into the tech sector. We partner with non-profits to bring US Veterans and Veteran spouses into Capgemini after they have completed their service. Our Veterans Employee Resource Group supports and celebrates our Veterans throughout the year.

    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.
