Diversity in Thought
Our people strategy is designed to help us attract the world's greatest talent and deliver breakthrough performance for our customers, our business and our team members. Our goal is to ensure that Dell is a compelling destination where team members feel valued, engaged and inspired to do their best work.

Dell's global business footprint includes operations in 180 countries, manufacturing in 25 locations, more than 40 distribution and configuration centers and more than 1,800 service centers worldwide.

Employee Resource Groups (ERGs)
Dell team members are an incredible force focused on building a greater level of involvement in our global diversity practices across our business. Dell's Employee Resource Groups connect team members who share common backgrounds or interests. They provide personal and professional development through mentoring, volunteerism and community involvement.
These groups are so powerful in shaping our culture and positively contributing to our business through increased employee engagement, that we have set a goal for 50 percent of our team members to participate in ERGs by 2030 in our Progress Made Real goals.
Dell is committed to attracting, retaining, and developing women across its global operations. Whether through internal development programs such as Leading Women @ Dell and Women In Action ERG or through relationships with industry leading partners, we believe these development opportunities are critical to our sustained growth and market leadership.
We are working to apply our expertise in technology and innovation to knock down barriers and eliminate bias wherever it exists through strategic initiatives.
Many Advocating Real Change
Through MARC we engage leaders in candid conversations on various diversity topics such as identifying ways to mitigate unconscious biases and promoting a more collaborative and inclusive leadership style. MARC sessions offer a judgment-free space for leaders to grapple with challenging subjects directly and honestly.
Dell was the first IT company to participate in the MARC Leaders program that was created by the Catalyst organization, a non-profit that promotes inclusive workforces for women, and is currently cascading this initiative to all global leaders.
We hope to significantly boost the number of diverse talent within technology. We are doing our part to help with our STEM entry and re-entry programs, because the future success of technology companies depends on a robust diverse talent pipeline. The STEM entry programs empower and enable diverse talent who are interested in pathways to pursuing careers in STEM. The re-entry into the workforce programs are for those who put their careers on pause in order to have a family. We also offer support and opportunities for those who are ready to transition back into the workforce.
Dell Career ReStart welcomes participants into full time, benefited positions, through a supportive, structured program that will help accelerate your transition back into the workforce.Learn More About ReStart
Ethnic & Cultural Empowerment
Race, ethnicity and culture (socio-economic status, religion, language) are dimensions of diversity that often create barriers to full equity and inclusion in parts of the world. As such, Dell dedicates resources to new innovative initiatives such as The Partnership Leadership Development Program to develop the talents of diverse team members.
Empowering LGBTQ Team Members
At Dell, we are committed to creating an inclusive workplace around the globe where team members are valued and respected regardless of their sexual orientation, gender identity or expression. We are advancing a culture that encourages lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and questioning employees to #beyourself at work and in the community. Additionally, we encourage others to become an Ally to the LGBTQ community to advocate for equality everywhere.
We empower our LGBTQ employees through our Pride Employee Resource Group, Transgender Toolkit highlighting resources and points-of-contact to ensure a smooth transition in our workplace and key partnerships such as Out & Equal Workplace Advocates and The National Gay & Lesbian Chamber of Commerce (NGLCC).Learn More About Employee Empowerment at Dell

Empowering People with Disabilities

We empower people with disabilities through:
True Ability Resource Group
The mission of True Ability ERG is to educate, drive awareness and serve as a resource for our team members impacted by disabilities and/or special needs. They do so by offering manager trainings, employee education programs, resources on accessibility & physical accommodation, and self-identification campaigns. True Ability partners with Facilities to lead the charge in ensuring our offices and surrounding areas are accessible. In Panama, for example, True Ability holds regular site walks with differently-abled team members to test improvements to accessibility and to inform future plans.Learn More
