Our approach to diversity, equity and inclusion (DEI) focuses on building an environment that celebrates and supports a blend of diverse perspectives created by differences in age, educational backgrounds, technical abilities, religious and political beliefs, socio-economic backgrounds, sexual orientation, identity, social cultures, disabilities, languages and more. We accomplish this through promoting inclusive leadership, implementing inclusive practices and fostering an inclusive mindset.
Cultivating a culture with a diverse workforce enables us to empower our people to gain perspectives and bring their whole, authentic selves to work. Considering diverse perspectives helps employees to apply unique approaches to problems through a more comprehensive lens and address details that may otherwise go unnoticed. We believe that a diverse work environment—enabled by our inclusive leadership, mindset, policies and systems—is essential for our people to be able to thrive, have a sense of belonging and make a positive impact through their work As a result, our people take pride in their work and appreciate the value that they contribute toward enabling our clients' digital futures while making a positive impact on society as a whole.

Egalite: Égalité is our BRG for LGBTQIA+ professionals and their allies. Learn more.
Mission Handicap: The goals of this BRG are to change unconscious and systematic thought patterns that associate disability with ‘incapability’ and to bridge the gap between disability and specific needs, socially responsible innovation and universal accessibility. The group aims to provide the tools to accurately and appropriately address workplace disability issues.
