Diversity, equity, and inclusion / Framework

Inclusion without exception
At TCS, we know that our diverse workforce, which is a competitive advantage, drives performance and profitability, and creates a rich culture of varied ideas, mindsets, and possibilities. We leverage individual strengths and power innovation to build a ‘future forward’ mindset through the lens of human relationships.
As a value driven multi-dimensional organization and an equal opportunity employer, we create an equitable work environment for all. Our Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) framework, which is a part of our LeaD (Leadership and Diversity) function, has progressed over the years to a segment-based focus, earmarking the various facets of diversity—gender inclusion, LGBTQ+ inclusion, people with disability, neurodiversity inclusion, and race and ethnicity inclusion.
Our focus on ‘Inclusion without Exception’ is driven by a five-pillar approach to diversity, equity and inclusion: Representation, Ecosystem, Enablement, Engagement, and Development.

Diverse Identity Segments
With our motto— “Inclusion without Exception,” we encompass various segments of diversity in the workplace:
Gender Inclusion creates an eco-system of equity across genders, while enhancing capability and capacity through behavioral and mindset shifts.
LGBTQ+ Inclusion creates a new normal in inclusion at TCS, where every community member feels psychologically safe to bring their authentic selves to work.
People with Disability and Neurodiversity Inclusion removes the culture of silence and stigma around disability through an environment of access and knowledge.
Diversity and Culture Inclusion strengthens a multicultural mindset to communicate and collaborate across cultural boundaries.
Race and Ethnic Diversity ensures all persons, irrespective of race, nationality, ethnic origin, caste, and religion, have equal opportunities of representation, engagement, knowledge, development, and career progression, without discrimination.
TCS’ DEI offerings are based on the ‘Diversity of the Mind’ pedagogy, a unique model built on inner attributes and external behaviors that explores and leverages the potential of people diversity and the cognitive intelligence of people at the workplace.
