"At SAIC, creating a diverse workforce and an inclusive workplace is a strategic business priority that fosters greater creativity, innovation, and connection to the communities we serve. We recognize that our employees’ differences, perspectives, and life experiences contribute to our success and enable us to create a company that is enduring."
Promote understanding of how our differences make all of us better.
Our inclusion and diversity program, MOSAIC, fosters a workplace where all employees feel valued for their unique perspectives, life experiences, values, and skills. We empower our employees to succeed by developing their potential, bringing their full self to the workplace, and consistently delivering products, goods, and services with innovative solutions.
Be a positive force for racial equality.
We are enhancing our recruiting practices to ensure a more diverse candidate pool and expanding partnerships with minority-focused professional organizations. And to increase minority representation in our leadership ranks, we will require interviews of qualified minority candidates for all leadership roles at director level and above.
In addition, we are making significant financial investments and taking concrete actions to address this critical issue. We have implemented a company-wide unconscious bias awareness program to educate leaders and employees on micro-aggression and discrimination in the workplace. We are also providing leaders with the resources to have courageous and supportive conversations with their employees.
Moreover, we are:
- Enhancing our recruiting practices to ensure a more diverse candidate pool, including recruiting from historically black colleges and universities (HBCUs) and developing partnerships with minority-focused professional organizations. We are looking at additional processes, practices, and external relationships to increase minority representation across the organization. These include requirements for interviewing minority candidates for leadership roles and minority leadership development and mentorship programs.
- Investing in supporting organizations whose missions align with our inclusion and diversity and racial equality goals, including the Thurgood Marshall College Fund, which provides scholarships to students at public HBCUs, and Black Girls Code, which provides girls of color ages 7 to 17 with opportunities to learn in-demand technology skills.
