How do I identify with others? When is it important to be a member of a societal group? How does my self-image differ to how others see me? How do I reconcile differences in the values of groups to which I belong?
During Digital Pride (25-30 April 2016), Fujitsu will be exploring these and other questions around the theme of identity and belonging, and situations where multiple identities may be disclosed, hidden, or in conflict with each other.
We support Digital Pride because diversity and individual growth are key values of our global company philosophy – The Fujitsu Way.
We are hosting a global video conference with senior Fujitsu executives and specially selected guests. The discussion will be led by a high profile anchor with a passion for diversity and inclusion, and will be streamed online to view as it happens.
You can take part in the event by watching the panel debate and by answering anonymous demographic questions about identity and belonging in your country. You can also submit questions before the event – we will be selecting some of these to include in the discussion.
Fujitsu is the leading Japanese information and communication technology (ICT) company, offering a full range of technology products, solutions, and services.
Approximately 159,000 Fujitsu people support customers in more than 100 countries.
We aim to contribute to society and act as good global citizens. The Fujitsu Way (our corporate philosophy) recognizes that by combining the talents of employees, each with their own unique qualities and way of thinking, our corporate value increases.
We respect the diversity of our employees. Manjiro Yoshimura (our first President in 1935) said, ‘I keenly felt that I must make this company into one where every employee would feel pride and joy.’
