TCS Joins Call to Take Action on Racism in the Workplace by Endorsing BITC’s Race at Work Charter
Tata Consultancy Services Announced its Full Commitment to Accelerate Positive Change for Black, Asian, and Minority Ethnic Employees in the Workplace
LONDON, October 21, 2021: Tata Consultancy Services (TCS) (BSE: 532540, NSE: TCS), a leading global IT services, consulting and business solutions organisation, announced its full commitment to accelerate positive change for Black, Asian, and minority ethnic employees in the workplace, by actively working towards the Business in the Community’s (BITC) Race Equality Campaign – The Race at Work Charter.
Launched in partnership with the UK government in 2018, The Race at Work Charter builds on the work of the 2017 McGregor-Smith Review, which found people from Black, Asian, and ethnic minority backgrounds were still underemployed, underpromoted, and underrepresented at senior levels.
Ramkumar Chandrasekaran, HR Director, TCS UK & Ireland, said: “Diversity and inclusion has been a fundamental focus at TCS for many years. We continue to initiate a series of comprehensive global programmes to facilitate real change in thinking, behaviours, actions and the way we communicate to achieve this; and we are pleased to be part of this important Charter which aims to significantly improve employment opportunities for ethnic minorities and boost the long-term economic position of the UK.”
TCS signed up to the Charter at the beginning of 2021 and is actively working towards meeting all requirements that comprise the Race at Work Charter principles. TCS has already made progress in the following key areas:
TCS Allies of Diversity Conclave UK continues to bring nationalities, genders, and generations together through virtual events and workshops to create a safe environment for everyone to be who they are and to create a culture that fully embraces diversity.
As a founding member of the World Economic Forum’s 2021 ‘Partnering for Racial Justice in Business’ initiative, TCS remains dedicated to breaking down workplace barriers, and actively raising the aspirations of ethnic minorities from within and outside the organisation to provide full support for professional growth.
