“Diversity and inclusion is the fabric that has progressively served IBM purpose to make the world a better place.”

Shannon Harris, Managing Director and Technology Leader

“Diversity and inclusion are foundational principles of IBM's culture of consciously embracing differences and advocating equity and allyship for innovation to thrive. We have introduced and enhanced programs, in New Zealand and around the world, to meet our strategic priorities of accountability, advocacy, allyship and employee experience. In recent years, this has included co-creating learning experiences around topics not previously discussed in the workplace such as systemic racism, unconscious bias, being an upstander and covering. IBM has been a progressive leader in diversity, advocacy, and innovation, and it’s the fabric that helps us make the greatest impact for our clients, our colleagues, and the world.”
