Hear What Some of our Global Diversity and Inclusion Board Members Have to Say...

"Diversity brings innovation that crosses cultural and gender boundaries which is necessary for us to operate and compete in a global environment. Our customer base is diverse and our competition is diverse. It is imperative that we have a workforce that represents our customers, can relate to our competition and collectively can generate ideas, develop products and serve our customers in a way that reflects the diverse world we operate in. I truly believe that Diversity and Inclusion programs are essential to ensure that we have the necessary focus on hiring, developing and retaining a truly world class, diverse workforce."


Vice President, HPE Software Support

"We Make IT Matter for the customers and community, as a pre-requisite we need to have similar demographic, otherwise how can we understand their need and culture. In addition, with global diversity and inclusion allows HPE connecting to the biggest talent pool, people make the difference at the end."
