Committed to empowering and advancing women

HCLTech is committed to women's empowerment and celebrating the contribution of women in the organization.

The three key elements of HCLTech gender diversity strategy involve:

  • Leadership commitment and extensive ongoing advocacy to address the unconscious bias in the workplace
  • On-boarding multiple stakeholders and driving the agenda based on diversity and inclusion goals of the respective unit, wherein the framework is global but the implementation is global to suit varied business and location needs
  • Two enabling programs for women leadership development which are based on formal mentoring:
    ASCEND - which mandates increases in the representation of women in senior management via multiple ways, including support programs, peer mentoring and coaching at all levels, and providing platforms to enable women leaders to learn and exhibit transformational leadership
    STEPPING STONES - which is a focused career development program to enable mid-level female employees to realise their career aspirations and potential and help them in their developmental journey. It focuses on coaching women who are new mothers and require help to manage the new expectations at work and home

Supporting and advancing women leaders

HCL runs a number of further diversity-oriented programs which contribute towards our gender diversity agenda including:

  • HCLTech Women Connect aims to engage and advance women through development programs, and advocates a gender neutral work environment by suggesting appropriate policies as well as positioning HCLTech as an employer of choice by women across the globe. The group also coaches and counsels aspiring young women professionals, shares experiences on work/life priorities and includes life coach support, daycare in office premises, concierge services, and policies such as extended maternity leave, work from home, flexible careers and flexible work hours
  • Feminspiration is a platform facilitated by the HCLTech Women Connect Affinity Network in which successful women leaders are invited to address employees and provide insights into successful leadership as well as understand perspectives on gender matters
  • BlogHer is an internal platform where aspects of gender-neutral policies are discussed in a constructive, non-hierarchical manner that helps both HCLTech and our employees to demystify workplace myths and stereotypes on gender, culture and further issues
  • Opportunities to interact with HCLTech Board Members including via meetings organised each quarter for women leaders to exchange thoughts, ideas and perspectives with HCLTech Board members to provide an ‘outside-in’ view for the women leaders and to gain insights on diversity and inclusion in the workplace

As a result of HCLTech's gender diversity strategy and initiatives, our overall gender ratio has been sustained while there has been an improvement in the middle level of the organisation, which we believe will translate into improved representation of women at the leadership level in years to come.
