HCL Technologies is proud to stand together with the International Women’s Day organization in voicing out its position in raising awareness against bias, celebrating women's achievements, and encouraging its employees to help create a gender equal workplace … an #EachforEqual world.

Through sustained programs and initiatives HCL has moved the needle positively on gender diversity which stands at 26.67% (an improvement of 1.8% over the last year).

There has also been a significant increase of women in leadership positions to 13.42% (an increase of 3.5% over FY'19). We have consistently and consciously furthered this cause through in-organization initiatives and have created a larger social environment that facilitates gender-equal workspaces.

At HCL, we view Diversity as a 'Differentiator' which is representative of the diversity in beliefs, behaviors, and skills within our organization.

Our workforce represents a spectrum of 140+ nationalities coming from many of the countries we do business in – where all work together to build a culture that respects inclusion.

Our Diversity and Inclusion strategy focuses on Talent Attraction, Talent Retention, and Talent Growth. These 3 strategies work in tandem to ensure a unified experience in promoting
gender diversity, cultural diversity, and inclusivity across the enterprise.

The significance of diversity for HCL business and growth is evident from the high focus this derives from our leaders and employees alike.

We believe that diversity will increasingly be a driving force of competitive businesses, now and into the foreseeable future.

Together for an equal tomorrow, today.
