Alongside their day-to-day work, some Capgemini colleagues are also members of many different global networks where everyone is welcome to be a direct contributor or an ally.

These employee-led networks bring together colleagues with similar interests, backgrounds, and challenges to provide support and encourage diversity and inclusion in the workplace. 

Katherine Hudson explains the personal and professional benefits of being part of an employee network.

Contributing positively to LGBT+ community

Katherine Hudson is a change manager in digital transformation at Capgemini in Sydney, Australia. She is also co-chair of the Capgemini OUTfront group for Australia and New Zealand, and says being part of the network means she doesn’t have to separate her career from her wider life.

“I’ve been an active member of the LGBT+ community since I was 15 years old,” she says. “I can’t imagine a version of my life where I wouldn’t be active in it. To have the opportunity to be involved in it at my place of work, and not keep it separate, is really important. Being involved with something like OUTfront means you are doing something positive and contributing to the LGBT+ community.”

Defining the agenda for corporate Australia

Katherine says the aim of OUTfront is to help current colleagues, clients, and people that might want to work for Capgemini in the future to understand how they can create an inclusive space for LGBT+ people within an organization. 

“At Capgemini here in Australia, we’ve achieved employer of the year twice, which means we’re ahead of the pack and that we can help to define the agenda for the rest of corporate Australia when it comes to LGBT+. I think we’re at a point where we can go beyond simply creating a support network and inclusive space for LGBT+ people.”

Capgemini drives engagement and empower our employees to be inclusive through the promotion of employee networks, and external recognition for their success. Capgemini believes the collaboration of diverse and multicultural teams promotes creativity and innovation, producing value and leading to an inclusive culture for the benefit of all.
