Dell’s WISE Network

EiDA16 Shortlisted Nominee

Outstanding Diversity Network Award

Women in Search of Excellence (WISE) is one of Dell’s largest employee resource groups, with a presence in over 40 countries. The network is aimed specifically at creating a stronger gender balance across the organisation and better opportunities for women. What particularly impressed our judging panel was also Dell’s participation in Catalyst’s Men Advocating Real Change (MARC) program. MARC is designed to engage men in creating a more inclusive work environment. It is an online community for men committed to achieving gender equality in the workplace. Dell is the first in the IT industry to implement the MARC Leaders pilot program. Last year, 20 global senior and emerging Dell leaders from the US, EMEA and Latin America participated in their first MARC training session. Following that, the entire EMEA Leadership Team participated in the MARC training. In June, a further 40 EMEA site leaders, executives & senior leaders from 23 countries participated in MARC training.
