A diverse group of people

Diversity. Equity.

Diversity, equity and inclusion have the power to create transformative social change.

This is why we aim to include all of society, both in our community and through our tech. This is why we reject discrimination. This is why we give people a place to belong and grow, to be respected, safe and valued. And together we strive to have an extraordinary impact on the world.

Our approach

Find and nurture diverse talent


We strive to make Thoughtworks equitable, reflective and inclusive of the society we live in. A home to all: regardless of age, ethnic origin, sexual orientation, gender, religion, disability, background or identity.


We’re proud of the work we’ve done championing Women in Tech. Our aim is to be 40% women in tech roles by 2022. Each of our regions has an additional focus area for diverse hiring within underrepresented groups in their countries. 


Examples of our work in this space:

Inclusion and belonging


People often say that working here is the first time they could be themselves at work. For us, inclusion is everyone’s job; it unifies us as a community, and brings out the best in individuals and teams.


We build awareness and sensitize people on topics like building equitable tech, unconscious bias, micro-aggressions, being a good ally, prevention of discrimination and harassment in our workplaces, and more.

Examples of our work in this space:

Advancement and opportunities


Cultivation is one of our core cultural values; when we help grow others, we grow ourselves. We seek out and nurture the potential in every Thoughtworker, through coaching and mentoring, a culture of feedback, stretch opportunities and more.


Our leadership development programs have had 50-60% women and UGM representation since 2012, consciously investing in a talent pipeline to shape our future.

Examples of our work in this space:

Retention and people policies


The fantastic diversity of Thoughtworkers has created our ‘secret sauce’ culture, the main reason people join, and stay. Our policies are not set in stone, and have been created with equity for marginalized and under-represented groups in mind.


Good suggestions often become policy, for example supporting gender transitioning and adoption leave. We do regular compensation analysis and pay parity checks.  


Examples of our work in this space:

Together, we have come a long way


We love that we've been recognized for our efforts, but as our CTO, Dr. Rebecca Parsons, says:


“We are not done yet, not by a long shot.”
