As for many of our clients, diversity is a strategic priority for Dimension Data. There’s plenty of research that suggests companies with more diverse workforces have stronger business performance, enhanced corporate reputation, are able to attract and retain key talent, and increase customer satisfaction. When we’re successful, we can help our clients be successful so, it is our priority to create an inclusive and diverse culture where everyone can thrive, regardless of age, race, ethnicity, religion, sexual orientation, and disability. With Workday as our new global solution for managing and reporting on our talent, we’ve gained greater access to talent analytics. This is a fundamental step in helping us understand the current trends in our talent make up and how we want to build our talent in the future.
Greater transparency with Workday Throughout the rollout of our Workday solution, we’ve got much greater transparency of our employee base and the makeup of our employee base.

NTT Senior Women’s Leadership Program 2015
NTT’s Senior Women’s Leadership Program is the company’s first global group-wide leadership program for women. Developed in partnership with Henley Business School in the UK, the program is designed to develop leadership skills and foster participant’s influence to drive the organisational change required within the NTT Group. Participants of the program are invited across the NTT Group and Dimension Data is delighted to have had six female leaders participate in the program this year.
NTT Global Leadership Development Program 2016
Over the last year, the NTT Senior Women’s Leadership Program evolved into the Global Leadership Development Program Leadership Excellence and Accelerating Diversity (GLDP LEAD) for both men and women. The role of the program is to broaden the strategic perspective of senior leaders across the Group by deepening their understanding of how the world is changing and NTT’s global strategy. It also aims to build the crucial capabilities required to foster and leverage a truly diverse and innovative culture that will accelerate NTT’s global business in a rapidly changing world. Five employees (four women and one man) from Dimension Data participated in the program and enjoyed the gender unity aspect which is so vital in business today.
