Great ideas come from people and with these great ideas we can aim to achieve even the impossible. At IBM we rely on our people whom we choose from diverse backgrounds with a variety in their perspectives to inspire new ways to work, breaking away from the ordinary and making big changes to the world as we know it.

Where every little counts, contributions are never too large or too small, we believe an idea can change a lot, so let’s hear it as it is. With diversity as our priority IBM is hiring more inclusively, creating opportunities for the next generation leaders to join us and help shape the future of this world – this is the IBM way forward creating a diverse workforce and engaging them in careers where they are making contributions that matter.

IBM’s goal is to create an environment, every IBMer can advance in. These efforts can be gaged through IBM’s diversity councils which are headed by senior-level executives, who meet up (monthly) to monitor diversity goals and measure progress towards them. With about 148 Employee Resource Groups (ERGs) spread across 45 countries serving various groups, including women, people with disabilities, LGBTs, veterans, Asians and Blacks, IBM can credibly say that we are one of the world‘s leading globally integrated enterprises.

In addition, IBM also has educational programs aimed at helping women succeed in the company. One such program, Building Relationship and Influence (BRI), is an award-winning program that has graduated more than 3,000 women. Designed for senior level women, this nomination-based program helps women build business relationships as well as professional leadership skills.
