Addressing Culture, Diversity, and Inclusion in EMEA: The Red Hat Way

Addressing Culture, Diversity, and Inclusion in EMEA: The Red Hat Way

This IDC Market Perspective is the first in a series of collaborative reports in which IDC addresses issues such as equality, diversity, and transformation as well as their implications on the tech industry. It has been written after a broad-ranging discussion between IDC and two leading female executives from Red Hat. The conversation covered everything from European cultural differences, diversity, leadership, talent, inclusion, organizational and cultural changes that digital transformation will necessitate, and critically, what open source culture can teach us about addressing these issues."Diversity, inclusion, and equality are big topics and a conversation worth having. A diverse talent pool is now a business imperative. An inclusive culture can help companies more effectively manage the complexities of transformation. I would love to see performance against diversity and inclusion goals be included in every company's performance statement, every RFP, and every company profile and every job spec," Margaret Adam, AVP, Services, Channels, Alliances and Ecosystems, IDC Europe.
