Ethnicity at Siemens

A WORD FROM DAVID ADEKITAN, Future Portfolio Head:

Ethnic minorites thrive at Siemens because the leadership commitment is great. Our employee network members are in the 100’s, we are on a journey not only to impact our organisation but support the industry.

If you are looking for organisation that encourages bringing your whole self to work, I can tell you Siemens is one of them!”At Siemens we have well embedded employee led networks for underrepresented to groups. Each seek to empower colleagues to develop in their chosen careers and support the incredible talent that we have. We host a vast number of inclusive activities, and we celebrate what makes us all unique. We provide mentoring opportunities, shadowing and we are working towards creating ethnicity pay gap reports.

We are signed up to the Race at Work Charter as we are passionate about racial equality and have made a series of commitments throughout our businesses to ensure that we are having an open conversation. We have a zero-tolerance approach racism. “

Race at Work Charter

Welcome to Business in the Community's Race Equality Campaign

We are committed to empowering employers to accelerate change for Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic (BAME) employees in the workplace.

The Business in the Community Race Equality Campaign has three key priority areas for action: leadership, progression and recruitment.

Signing up to the Charter means taking practical steps to ensure your organisation is tackling barriers that ethnic minority people face in recruitment and progression and that the organisation is representative of communities, customers and clients and British society today. Our research has identified five key areas which now comprise our Race at Work Charter principles.

Race at Work Charter principles

Sandra Kerr CBE, race director at Business in the Community, said: “By signing the Race at Work Charter, Siemens is joining 470 other businesses on the right side of history. A commitment to the Charter’s five actions shows that a company has more on their mind than pretty words – and that they understand the value of telling the world that they want to create and promote fairer, more inclusive working environments for Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic colleagues.”

Siemens colleagues social distanced celebrating BHM2021

Each year we celebrate Black History Month and hear from our colleagues on what is important to them. We always look at untaught history and hear about those figures who have inspired us individually. During Black History Month our ethnicity networks and special guests discussed personal and professional reflections of challenges they have faced and how they strive to overcome them.

We have a very transparent and open dialogue around racial inequality and often hold panel discussion on important and interesting topics. For example, Siemens employees had a fascinating discussion on black hair and the uniqueness of it.
