Inclusion Drives Business
CDW’s technology solutions often require thousands of components to maximize their capabilities. And when it comes to building a quality team, the requirements are no different.
Recruiting well-trained, highly-skilled individuals with a broad range of experiences has been essential to CDW’s growth and success. But it’s not just about cherry-picking a group of talented people. The key is engaging people the right way so they can perform at their best.
That’s why the very name of CDW’s diversity and inclusion practice – Connections@CDW – encourages our coworkers to make solid, dependable connections in the workplace, with our customers, our supplier partners and in the communities we serve.
We also encourage coworkers to take an active role in their own personal and professional development through our African Heritage, Hispanic Heritage, Women in Sales, Women’s Leadership and Military & Allies Resource Council networks.
Because real leaders know it is incumbent upon them to produce more leaders. It’s about motivating and inspiring yourself and others.
