Capgemini Senior Engagement Manager Nicola Hodkinson supported the #EachforEqual campaign by sharing her experiences of working for the company and how Capgemini set out to create a more equal workplace.

The best teams are the most diverse ones

For Nicola, the best teams are made up of different personalities, characteristics and drivers.

"For companies to continue to grow and succeed, they need to draw from the full talent pool and it's vital that they employ a healthy mix of employees of different gender, age, ethnicity and social backgrounds, we need this mix within our businesses to continue to drive creativity and innovation forward," she explains.

"I am not sure how Capgemini do it but the people they employ are all of a similar nature, character and determination, with everyone being true to the core values that permeate throughout the company. I have always had the pleasure of working with some amazing individuals, being mentored by some truly inspirational people and being surrounded on a daily basis with liked minded people who bring out the best in you," she adds.

"I believe that the right opportunities always present themselves at the right time and that you should trust your feelings. Mine have taken me to where I am right now and are opening the door for many more opportunities in the future. I'm a very firm believer in doing what feels right and trusting your gut!"
