World Wide Technology - Culture of Inclusion
World Wide Technology Furthers Culture of Inclusion with The WIT Network
We are thrilled to welcome World Wide Technology (WWT) into our WIT Network community as a Corporate Sponsor. WWT‘s commitment to diversity, inclusion, and corporate social responsibility sets a standard that can provide inspiration to other technology organizations.
A culture of inclusion
WWT believes that making a positive social and business impact on the world requires a combination of corporate social responsibility and embracing diversity in people and ideas. Our priority is to continuously improve our culture of inclusion and equality by enhancing employee safety and well-being, listening to our teammates, fostering equality and creating a great place to work for all. As we continue to create a Culture of Inclusion at WWT, we believe women play an important role in fostering multiple perspectives, experiences, and capabilities in problem-solving. The results are significant to innovative and creative business outcomes.
By joining The WIT Network, WWT further extends their support to the tech community, enabling us to continue the programs that encourage and educate. What excites me the most about joining The WIT Network are the programs and webinars that they offer, explains Christine Fierro, Practice Manager, Carrier Network Systems, WWT Global Engineering Team. Listening to the stories and guidance from other women, especially those in technology, is inspiring and will help further shape who I am and where I want to go in my career path.
Three pillars of diversity and inclusion
As WWT states, Our Diversity and Inclusion program rests on three pillars: our workforce, our business and our community. We believe our commitment to fostering a diverse and inclusive workforce drives significant and tangible business outcomes that create a force multiplier for our ability to impact the community. Our Women‘s Leadership Forum, Women in Technology and Women in GET (Global Engineering Team) programs were established to educate, empower and enhance the competencies of our women leaders—advocating and supporting women in leadership roles throughout the company.
We are so pleased to welcome WWT as a corporate sponsor, said Christine Bongard, President of The WIT Network. I highly recommend a visit to the WWT website for inspiration. The Corporate Social Responsibility content and Diversity & Inclusion pages set a standard that other technology companies could aspire to. Unlike many organizations, WWT doesn‘t shy away from taking a stand.
