CGI has been recognized by Great Place to Work® as among India's Best Workplaces™ for Women in 2022.
The recognition is based on feedback from women at CGI about its culture, including the aspects of respect and fairness. CGI’s ranking also takes into consideration the representation of women across levels at CGI and its practices to support the inclusion of women in the workplace.
“We’re committed to promoting an inclusive workplace where women's careers thrive and their achievements are celebrated,” said George Mattackal, President of CGI’s Asia Pacific Global Delivery Centers of Excellence. “This recognition reinforces our ongoing efforts to increase representation in the technology industry and foster a culture of diversity and inclusion at our workplace,” he added.
In India, CGI helps advance women in technology through collaboration with local networks, partnerships, and enablement within the company. CGI has also implemented initiatives that drive women’s personal and professional development, create networking opportunities for them, and support them in building challenging and fulfilling careers. The following are some of CGI’s programs providing practical support for women:
- A maternity transition program to help women stay connected during their maternity leave and make a successful transition back.
- A leadership development program that aims to build the personal and professional potential of its women professionals by preparing them for leadership roles.
- A mentoring program, in partnership with NASSCOM, focused on mentoring women technologists to grow their careers in emerging technology.
- An outreach program that helps women who have taken a career break to return to the workforce.
