Over the past year, DEI has been a top priority for the leading engineering and industrial software brand AVEVA. This includes establishing a DEI strategy, implementing governance, creating a DEI policy, gaining commitment on this topic from the executive team, rolling out training, and accelerating the previous targets.
During that time, AVEVA saw two challenges arise simultaneously. The first was the imperative to broaden the conversation around DE&I, which had a long-running focus on gender; secondly, COVID brought into the spotlight the need to have employee wellbeing initiatives in place.
In this case study, Debbie Install, AVEVA’s VP inclusion and employee engagement, shares how the brand has successfully implemented its strategy to overcome the challenges it recognised.
