Eimear C. | Consultant, Diversity | Dublin, Ireland

Originally Published: February 20th, 2024

Can you describe your current role and location?

My role is the Europe, the Middle East, and Africa (EMEA) Regional Consultant for Culture, Diversity & Inclusion. I live in Ireland and am based from the Cherrywood, Dublin Office.

The Culture, Diversity, and Inclusion role is dedicated to cultivating a workplace environment that values and celebrates diversity in all its forms. Overall, the Culture, Diversity, and Inclusion Team plays a critical part in shaping a culture in Dell Technologies that embraces diversity as a strategic pillar and promotes equity and inclusion for all.

In my role, I collaborate with various teams within the EMEA Region to develop and implement diversity and inclusion programs, training sessions and awareness campaigns. The objective is to build a culture that not only acknowledges differences but actively leverages them for innovation and success. My role plays a fundamental part in fostering a workplace environment where authenticity and diversity are not only acknowledged but celebrated. Through collaborative efforts with Employee Resource Groups (ERGs), Regional/Business Unit (BU) HR and Leadership Teams, we strive to ensure that our workplace embraces diversity as a strength, fostering an environment where every employee feels valued and empowered to contribute their unique perspectives and talents. By creating initiatives that empower individuals to bring their authentic selves to work, we aim to dismantle barriers and promote a sense of belonging.

When did you join Dell Technologies? Could you share your career progression within the company?

I joined Dell in 2007 as an HR Generalist supporting UK and Ireland Sales organizations based in the CWD, Dublin site. When I joined, I didn’t anticipate such long tenure or exposure to dynamic career opportunities, growth and learning experiences as I progressed into various HR Business Partners roles at the Regional and Global level.

In 2022 I was given the opportunity to transition into EMEA Regional Lead for Diversity & Inclusion, a field that I am very passionate about and has given me immense professional and personal fulfillment.

What inspires you?

What inspires me most at Dell Technologies is the people. In particular, the diverse talent, unwavering dedication and collaborative spirit that I have seen through the years and continues to create a work environment that fosters innovation and mutual support, even in challenging times.

I am deeply inspired by colleagues, particularly those who volunteer in our ERG’s who I see support members both personally and professionally and foster a culture of inclusivity. Witnessing their dedication to enhancing the well-being and professional development of their peers not only motivates me but reinforces the transformative power of collective efforts in creating a workplace where everyone can thrive.

What type of impact does your role have on Dell Technologies?

By championing initiatives that promote diversity, equity, and inclusion, CD&I plays a role in reshaping perspectives and fostering a culture that values differences. This includes not only changing policies and practices but also to influence Dell team members, in creating a more empathetic and inclusive work environment. Diversity & Inclusion is essential to Dell’s success as a company. By creating a workplace where everyone can thrive, we are able to attract and retain the best talent, innovate more effectively and serve our customers better.

As a Diversity and Inclusion partner, I continue to witness the profound ripple effect of these efforts, contributing not only to a more equitable workplace but also enhancing the overall success and resilience of the organization.

How has the organization inspired you to make an impact?

Diversity and Inclusion has been a deeply personal and inspiring journey, as it has granted me the space to authentically be who I am. It has been a profound source of inspiration, driving me to make a lasting impact in areas that resonate deeply with my personal experiences. Experiencing the power of embracing one's authentic self within diverse environments has fueled my commitment to creating spaces where individuals feel not only accepted but celebrated for their uniqueness. Having navigated the challenges of working with a hidden disability and confronting imposter syndrome, I am driven to dismantle barriers and advocate for inclusivity, ensuring that everyone, regardless of background or ability, can thrive in an environment that recognizes and values their contributions.

This journey has not only shaped me professionally but resonates on a personal level as I champion authenticity, diversity, and resilience both inside and outside of work. In particular, supporting my nieces as they build and shape a world where they can thrive without limitations, reinforcing the profound impact that Diversity and Inclusion initiatives can have on future generations.

How are you empowered to make an impact at Dell Technologies?

One of the primary reasons that I have continued to develop my career at Dell Technologies is that this is a company where HR and Diversity & Inclusion are embraced as strategic partners, viewing HR and CD&I as an integral driver of strategic initiatives that foster employee well-being and organizational growth. Dell’s people philosophy is an element of our HR strategy, serving as the guiding framework that ensures our approach to talent management, development, and workplace culture aligns seamlessly with our organizational values and goals.

Our people philosophy is based on the idea that, when we grow as individuals, we grow together. We are committed to helping our team members achieve their best, balance life, connect with others and create a culture that fosters diversity and enables team members to rise to their full potential through representation, inclusion, sponsorship and equity. I am empowered in my role to contribute to a workplace culture that prioritizes authenticity, respects individual contributions and champions a shared commitment to excellence.
