Today being International Women's Day, Teradata wishes to recognize and celebrate the social, economic, cultural and political achievements of women everywhere. At Teradata, we firmly believe that all members of society, regardless of gender, deserve equal educational and professional opportunities to achieve their full potential and contribute to the advancement of their community and country.
This day also invites us to look inward and evaluate our progress across the wide spectrum of topics related to diversity and inclusion in today’s workplace. Our people are the foundation of Teradata’s success and we remain committed to developing a work environment where everyone
has the opportunity to thrive.
Like any critical business imperative, advancing diversity and inclusion requires a clear strategy and deliberate focus, supported by sustained action. As the CEO, I feel it is my role to lead by example when it comes to advancing diversity and inclusion within the workplace. As a step in this direction, I have joined the CEO Action for Diversity & Inclusion™
. This is the largest CEO-driven business community that facilitates the open exchange of ideas, actions and real-life experiences. This commitment is driven by a realization that addressing diversity and inclusion is not a competitive issue, but a societal issue. Recognizing that change starts at the executive level, more than 550 CEOs of the world’s leading companies and business organizations are leveraging their individual and collective voices to advance diversity and inclusion in the workplace.
Under this action, I have pledged to cultivate environments where diverse experiences and perspectives are welcomed and where everyone feels comfortable and encouraged to discuss diversity and inclusion.
As we continue to forge the culture at Teradata, we are limited only by the extent of our own ambitions. I am confident in our team’s ability to rise as one and deliver meaningful change in this important societal cause.
Diverse and inclusive, we are the new Teradata, energized and committed to making a difference.
