Here are a couple of videos that speak to our commitment to diversity and inclusion, and how they integrate with everything we do (scroll below for more information, and please press the Pause button on any video in progress before playing additional videos):

 

 

"Companies need to have a diversity and inclusion strategy because it is the right thing to do. And personally I think that should be enough of a reason. But as a CEO, I also need to be conscious of the ROI of our strategic imperatives. And there is a strong business case for having a diversity and inclusion strategy that includes increasing our global competitive advantage, enhancing our engagements with customers and engaging our talent. I am committed to making this strategy a success and I am counting on each of our people to do likewise."  Adam Warby, CEO

Thinking globally, acting locally

To achieve Adam's aspiration we think globally and implement locally in the areas and regions we do business. We recognize the importance of having a global strategy that ties us all together across the fabric of Avanade; however, the importance of local context for driving diversity and inclusion strategies will ultimately create success.

Our strategic focus has been to create a strong, shared understanding of what diversity and inclusion mean at Avanade, ensuring ALL of our employees' diversity, talents and skills are leveraged to ensure competitive advantage for us in the marketplace. In the future, we will constantly challenge ourselves to implement diversity and inclusion tactics to attract, develop and keep a diverse employee workforce across the company.

Ongoing Programs

* Our largest effort to date focused around International Women's Day (IWD). We hosted 29 regional round-table events in over 20 countries, where we challenged our employees to come up with 101 ideas on how better to attract, develop and retain women at Avanade.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Avanade in September 2016.

    Interview

    It was pretty straight forward, they called me on time and it went on for half an hour. The interviewer did alot of the talking. I was pretty happy with the whole process but they still havent gotten back to me afterwards, its been about 4-5 weeks.
