Diversity, Equity & Inclusion

Belonging. It matters.

Belonging is a basic human need. When coworkers freely and respectfully bring their authentic selves and unique perspectives to work, we all become better - better collaborators, bolder innovators, and stronger drivers of business results. CDW is committed to creating a culture of diversity, equity and inclusion, where everyone feels they belong.

CDW’s strategy for Diversity, Equity and Inclusion

Our strategy is about cultivating a culture of diversity, equity and inclusion to drive better collaboration, innovation and business results. We’re taking steps to nurture belonging in ways that are meaningful and sustainable. We strive to realise outcomes that create a culture of belonging for everyone.

Outcomes we're committed to:

  • Authenticity

    Ensure every coworker has an ongoing positive experience at CDW while being his/her/their authentic self.

  • Voice

    Create an environment where every coworker has a voice, feels valued, and is part of the team.

  • Priority

    Show DEI is a priority and an essential part of CDW's DNA.

  • Representation

    Build world-class talent while ensuring we have diverse representation and perspectives that drive growth and innovation.

Business Resource Groups (BRGS)

At the heart of our strength in diversity, equity, and inclusion are our Business Resource Groups (BRGs). Our BRGs bring coworkers together around topics that matter. More than networking, BRGs empower coworkers to make an impact on CDW's culture and beyond. Each one has a pivotal part in promoting inclusion and belonging while providing professional development, informal mentoring, and networking opportunities to its members. The core drivers of the BRGs are to:

1

Connect

Provide an additional connection and place of support to existing and new coworkers

2

Foster

Foster a strong internal community

3

Strengthen

Strengthen CDW’s stance on pertinent issues and topics

4

Advance

Cultivate equality and support the inclusion and advancement of all individuals

5

Educate

Create impactful partnerships to support the external education of individuals

6

Promote

Promote the resource group brand, maintaining transparency and openness to the inclusion of all
