Creating an inclusive workplace isn’t a top-down initiative, it relies on our people at all levels to get involved and make a difference. Our Diversity Champions and Employee Networks work hard to bring our employees together and take action into keeping Siemens UK an inclusive place to work.
Since Siemens works in a variety of industries it makes sense that much of our action happens at the local level. D&I champions work with customers and industry-relevant partners to make sure we’re taking action within our society as a whole. Our D&I champions organise events which are most relevant to the needs of employees and often link to important days such as International Womens and Mens Days, IDAHOBIT, National Inclusion Week. Champions are encouraged to take ownership of the change they want to see which has led to a multitude of local initiatives such as local lean-in circles, mindfulness sessions, womens networks, autism awareness campaign, wheelchair challenges, inclusion talks and many many more.
