One of the world’s largest IT and business consulting firms, CGI has been at the forefront and the heart of IT services and solutions since 1976. We’re an insights-driven and outcomes-based company, accelerating returns on investments with a key differentiator: insights you can act on. Our unprecedented success around the globe is built on comprehensive, scalable and sustainable IT and business consulting services, informed globally and delivered locally.
Liz Addison, a Senior Consultant who serves as a Senior Product Designer on the Human Centered Design team, shares what she likes about supporting her clients: “You're working for something bigger than you. Our strategic and design engagements involve a pivotal moment in the client's product as they're looking to change and take a new approach. That's where they bring us in and it's super fulfilling to help them make that change.”
At CGI, our employees, who we call members, feel safe bringing their whole selves as they collaborate with co-workers and clients on meaningful work. We’re a diverse organization where ideas – like our careers – have uncapped potential. Our U.S. team includes two Strategic Business Units (SBUs), U.S. Commercial and State Governments (U.S. CSG) and CGI Federal. U.S. CSG operates in a metro-based model – teams support clients in the local areas where they live and work, partnering with some of the biggest brands and state and local governments. CGI Federal partners with the U.S. Federal Government to support a wide array of organizations and their unique, mission-critical goals. From defense, environment, financial management, health and human services, homeland security, to housing and intelligence agencies, our U.S. teams have served as our clients’ essential partners over many years.

Through its Grant Program, The Women’s Forum provides financial assistance to members for programs and activities that support professional development, training and networking.
As Business Analyst and Knoxville Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) Chair, Taylor Spratt says, “CGI really supports you, both the people you work with directly and the people up the chain. They want you to succeed, not just for the company but also for yourself. They want to give you opportunities to learn, grow and have experiences.”
As a clear indication of CGI’s dedication to promoting women, the company's leadership includes many very successful women. For example, Rashida Ricks, Vice President of Strategic Engagement and Inclusion at CGI Federal, is a passionate leader who is advancing underrepresented talent at the company. In an interview with WashingtonExec, she noted that she is using her expertise in this role “to create more inclusive work environments in a way that also empowers individuals to share their diverse perspectives and innovative ideas.”
CGI offers the trust and flexibility to be your best at home and work. We want you to feel heard and like your voice matters. Recently, CGI’s U.S. team earned a perfect score in the Human Rights Campaign (HRC) Foundation's Corporate Equality Index and was recognized in “Best Places to Work'' by the LGBTQ+ Equality Index.
