diversity and inclusion

We’re breaking down barriers to a better future

At Capgemini, we believe that a workplace where everyone feels valued for who they are, isn’t just a powerfully competitive advantage, but that building an inclusive culture which truly represents the diversity of the society we exist in, is simply the right thing to do!
 
That’s why we’re working with global and local organizations and our own employees to ensure that we create equal opportunities for all, address biases at the workplace, and equip all our managers with skills required to be truly inclusive leaders.

Capgemini is committed to equality of opportunity and dignity at work for all, irrespective of caste, religion, race, gender, colour, creed, ethnic or national origin, marital status, sexuality, disability, class or age. At Capgemini, managing diversity is not an option – it is a moral and business imperative that honours our humanity, gives it meaning, and paves the way for sustainable growth in the new socio-economic order.

Our Approach

At Capgemini, we build trusting relationships, find common ground and identify areas for collaboration within the organisation, as well as across our industry and within our communities.

“It is with great pride that I am able to say diversity and inclusion are in our culture and DNA. In today’s business environment gender diversity – and diversity on a broader scale – is essential to ensuring that we have the right skills base and talent pool within our organizations.”

Aiman Ezzat, Chief Operating Officer, Capgemini Group

Winspire: Advancing Gender Balance

As a global technology and consulting leader, Capgemini has long held the belief that a vibrant, diverse workforce and an inclusive culture are fundamental to our identity and success, bringing more creativity and distinctive ideas to the table.

One of our key priorities remains to address the gender gap which is still present in our industry. Convinced that women are key to shaping the future of the digital economy, we aim to ensure that female employees fully take part in both corporate life and decision-making processes at all levels, as equals of their male counterparts. Women@Capgemini strives to create a more inclusive work environment where women can feel fully supported in their professional and personal endeavours. It is a global program adopted in 2012 to set the overarching guidelines around gender balance across the Group, it is based on the fundamental principle of “equal opportunities, equal chances”.

Our endeavour is to provide a safe and inclusive work environment, a more productive and barrier-free workplace, and ensure LGBTQ+ employees can bring their whole selves to work, and realize their full potential at Capgemini.

Embracing Abilities

Due to lack of accessible infrastructure and awareness, people with disabilities often find it difficult to earn a decent living. To ensure their in the economic value creation process, it calls for awareness and competence building in a systematic and systemic way. At Capgemini, we see this as an opportunity and a social responsibility. The opportunity is to tap into this unexplored talent pool and the rationale becomes all the more compelling knowing the business value this talent pool exhibits. 

Multiculturalism

Multiculturalism is the phenomenon of multiple groups of cultures existing within one society. Through this pillar at Capgemini in India, we commit to hire, develop and progress more talented people from groups that are under-represented, and to foster a culture where everyone who works for or alongside us feels welcome and respected irrespective of their race or ethnicity. 

Happiness & Well-being

We at Capgemini acknowledge the intrinsic link between Happiness and Wellbeing and how happiness is at the heart of everything we strive for as individuals. Through this pillar, we aim to provide our people a holistic opportunity to nurture their Happiness & Wellbeing.

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. Read more on our progress towards our commitments.
