Capgemini's global employee network groups (ENG) are key to the company's commitment to building an inclusive work environment and providing its colleagues from diverse backgrounds with a sense of community and belonging.

"They offer all of us a platform to connect, promote awareness, and share experiences with each other at a global and local level, covering a variety of topics, interests, and identities based on local needs," says the company.

There are four global ENGs – Women@Capgemini, OUTfront, CapAbility, and CulturALL – and several local networks for armed forces, parenting and sustainability, among others. Cultivating their commonalities, so far, around 45,000 Capgemini colleagues across countries and business units have actively participated and continue to lead by example.

Capgemini consistently works to build an inclusive environment where everyone feels able to be their whole self. The company's employee networks are at the heart of this journey. Open to all, they provide a friendly space to share experiences, promote awareness and empower each other.
