This IDC Market Note analyzes and presents learnings from NTT DATA's strategy for diversity and inclusion.
"Balancing the female percentage in the tech industry is vital to increasing the talent pool, overcoming the skills gap, and creating a positive spiral in which companies can justify their diversity strategies and build trust among customers and employees. NTT DATA has chosen a strategy with a variety of initiatives to increase diversity. Its initiatives vary and are adapted to the country and culture, and this can serve as a role model for other organizations," said Martin Sundblad, research manager, European Skills Practice at IDC.
