In this HRD Connect video, we hear from Kelly Metcalf, Head of diversity, inclusion, and wellbeing at Fujitsu about the importance of gender equality in business.

Kelly discusses the importance of ensuring women are represented at all levels of business and outlines the 5-pillar action plan Fujitsu has put into place to help them achieve gender equality.

As Kelly highlights, some of the positive results from their action plan include:

  • Rising female engagement rates
  • 50% of UK leadership team made up of women
