Women and minorities

In the U.S., TI hosts customized programs to attract and retain traditionally underrepresented women and minorities. Outside of the U.S., programs are unique by country and region based on local needs. Today, women constitute 36 percent of TI's global workforce. In the U.S., minority employees represent 40 percent of the workforce. Examples of initiatives that support the retention of women and minorities include:
  • Nineteen grassroots initiatives (employee resource groups) within the TI Diversity Network that offer social events, networking, mentoring and community-service opportunities to connect our diverse workforce.
  • Insights groups that provide opportunities for strong-performing women, African-Americans and Hispanics in leadership roles to meet regularly with senior leadership and TI's chairman, president and CEO. They share perspectives on their work environment and offer ideas on how to make additional progress in creating an inclusive workplace.
Additionally, TI executives hold leadership roles with Catalyst, a global nonprofit that researches women's experiences in business, barriers to their career advancement, and individual and organizational strategies leading to success.
