At Atos, we are committed to LGBTI inclusion, creating an environment where people can bring their authentic selves to the workplace. So, while we have extensive plans to celebrate Pride Week 2019, our efforts do not stop there. In 2018, we signed the UN Standards Of Conduct For Business, aligning ourselves with the focus on inclusivity for all, and in 2019, we signed L’Autre Cercle’s charter, pledging our support of our LGBTI employees, and to working with them to ensure that their voices are heard when setting/revising policies and hiring and promoting our employees worldwide, as shown in this video.

As our AtosPride employee network continues to grow, programs such as the UK&I’s reverse mentoring relationships between senior leaders and LGBTI employees and webinars under our “The Plus Of Us” D&I umbrella allow us to educate our 110,000 employees in 73 countries and provide resources and information on everything from traveling abroad with your same-sex partner to inclusive parenting tips.

Our co-leaders of the AtosPride network have distinct goals in mind as they take the helm of our largest global employee network: Tamsin McCarthy is certain that we can reach the milestone of 2000 members. She is also working hard with the rest of the AtosPride Steering committee to move up the rankings of the Stonewall Workplace Equality Index and break into the top 100. Sam Ellis echoes the importance of creating an environment where everyone can be themselves, allowing them to excel within their roles, as explained in this video featuring Julia Atwater of the UK. Collectively, they intend to take AtosPride to the next level, and our senior leaders stand poised to assist them in these efforts.
