Preeti D'mello: Inclusion Without Exception For LGBTQ+ Employees

TCS recognizes that a diverse and inclusive workforce is necessary to drive innovation, foster creativity, and guide business strategies. Our continued commitment to Culture and Diversity is reflected in our people with a simple motto, “Inclusion without Exception”.

Respect for individual; one of our core TCS values, encourages us to build a culture of inclusion, regardless of sexual orientation, gender identity or expression.

Proactive approach is the most crucial step

In any organization, creating an inclusive workplace environment for the LGBTQIA+ community requires a proactive and ongoing approach. Conducting education, sensitization and awareness sessions that focus on the community is key in this effort.

We believe in building an organization where everyone feels psychologically safe and can bring their authentic selves to work.
