Diverse teams and an inclusive environment are critical to innovation and future growth. Our mission is to create an environment where employees can do their best work, and diverse perspectives spur innovation and growth for our clients and people. We are proud to be a pioneer in combining emerging technologies and human ingenuity to change things for the better and build diverse communities worldwide.
“I'm passionate about inclusion and diversity, and personally I don’t believe there is innovation without diversity. With diversity, we challenge our thinking, we have alternative thoughts and mindsets. Also, with a more diverse team around the table, we get a better product – faster.” Pam Maynard, CEO at Avanade.
As a leading digital innovator, we have both an opportunity and a responsibility to attract, engage and develop the next generation who will be at the forefront of delivering emerging technologies, and create things for the better. We understand the challenges that the technology industry faces as they relate to inclusion & diversity, and pledge to be part of the solution and at the forefront of change.
We build STEM careers earlier. We proactively cultivate interest in STEM and create new opportunities for young women and girls via our strategic partnerships and our very own 15 for 15 Scholars program. Through our employee resource groups and events such as International Women’s Day and Pride commemorations, we fully support and partner with community groups to increase interest, access, and insights regarding opportunities in technology.
Do you believe women are changing the tech game? So do we.
As the world’s leading digital innovator working in the Microsoft ecosystem, we believe in making a genuine human impact in everything we do. Here, we set out with our clients to transform their businesses, uncover ways technology can improve the way we work and live, and change the world for the better. All this through the power of our people and cutting-edge Microsoft technology.
Our focus on innovation and excellence applies to diversity and inclusion, too. With a commitment from leadership, we have developed innovative programs and standard processes to create a welcoming environment where everyone thrives. For us, it’s not so much about making it look easy; it’s about easing the path for everyone who joins us to be the best at what they do.
Avanade is a place where women can learn, grow and succeed through on-the-job experience, professional development and mentoring. But we know that bringing women into the field isn’t enough—they must have room to grow and advance. Here you will have boundless opportunities to pursue your personal and professional goals through interesting work with smart people who are passionate about using technology to make the world a better place.
As long as Microsoft continues to empower people to achieve more, Avanade will empower our people to do more with technology and with their careers.
