Thoughtworks is a home for all technologists, and has had a strong focus on inclusion for many years, endeavouring to make Thoughtworks equitable, reflective and inclusive of the society we live in.
Led by the disability inclusion community at Thoughtworks we are focused on working towards being an actively inclusive and accessible workplace for people with disabilities, both invisible and visible.
As pioneers in tech, Thoughtworks strives to make our software development practices and the products we create more accessible, and to bring best practices to the communities we participate in.
We are developing and investing in inclusion for people with disabilities (PWD), being guided by our PWD community along the way. We have committed to the Valuable 500, are members of PurpleSpace, and have created a global network who are focused on driving disability inclusion at Thoughtworks.
We collaborated with marketing to ensure our brand and website are accessible - there’s ongoing investment on improving our website too.
The global disability Inclusion core group partners with our operations teams to ensure all Thoughtworkers can fully participate in all aspects of working here, and have equitable opportunities. This is part of our larger vision to be an employer of choice for PWD.
