CDW celebrates and promotes a diverse and inclusive community. For CDW, inclusion means a variety of choices. We are committed to leading an environment of inclusion for people of all backgrounds, race, gender, age, religion, abilities, education, beliefs and sexual orientation. The only commonalities we ask for is a solid work ethic, strong skills, a belief in opportunity for all and an appetite to win!
We recognise that coworker engagement is critical to our success. To support and promote coworker enjoyment, CDW's fast pace activity based working environment is enabled through open spaces, breakout areas to encourage creativity, and cross-functional collaboration to aid a coworker's development. CDW's community celebrate coworkers, whether through internal recognition such as the Going the Extra Mile (GEM) awards, Coworker of the Quarter, during our annual Kick Off event, or through external recognition via CRN or Partner awards.
It is important that we celebrate our diverse culture as well as celebrating our community. We strive to offer something for everyone as inclusion, to us, means a variety of choices. Whether it is charitable fundraising challenges, volunteering opportunities, fitness offerings, quizzes or informative webinars from leading professionals; we are confident we have something for all our CDW members.
