Inclusion & Diversity
At Leidos, we believe that a focus on inclusion and diversity improves team performance, influences innovative business strategies and drives positive results by advancing our workforce, cultivating an inclusive workplace and advancing our reputation in the marketplace.
By cultivating an inclusive culture, we enable every employee to leverage their unique talents and high performance standards to create cohesive and collaborative teams that drive innovative solutions. Leidos values differences in thought, style, backgrounds, and opinions. The talent needed to grow our business depends on cultivating a workforce rich in diversity of thought, experience and culture. Our commitment to diversity and inclusion is reflected in:
- How we advance our Inclusion and Diversity brand externally to attract qualified diverse candidates into our applicant pool
- How we build our inclusion acumen to remove barriers to retention
- How we establish processes that will advance our diverse talent
- How we provide premier Employee Resource Groups with tools and resources to foster impact and engagement across Leidos
Our inclusion and diversity program is part of the Talent Development & Inclusion Corporate function which is part of the HR Centers of Excellence team, led by our Chief Human Resources Officer & Head of Business Partnership - an executive leadership position. Inclusion and diversity strategies, solutions and resources are shared at Human Resources and Compensation Committee meetings, which has explicit responsibility for equal opportunity, affirmative action, and workplace diversity issues, as described in the public committee charter.
Launched in 2018, our Inclusion and Diversity (I&D) campaign, Inclusive Perspectives = Innovative Solutions, reinforces the importance of an inclusive environment where diverse perspectives yield innovative solutions for our customers. The campaign also introduced our I&D framework, a vibrant new I&D logo, and collateral posters prominently displayed across various Leidos locations; the posters are also accessible for download via our employee intranet platform.
Our commitment to inclusion and diversity is reflected in the way we engage our people, our customers and our external partnerships through our innovative programs, sponsorships and engagement.
