We would like to acknowledge and thank our wonderful sponsors, without whom we would not be able to do the work that we do.


At IBM, we believe in progress—that the application of intelligence, reason and science can improve business, society and the human condition. This belief enables us to change the way the world works, and in so doing, to be essential to our clients and to society.

Restlessly reinventing since 1911, we are the largest technology and consulting employer in the world, with more than 350,000 employees serving clients in 170 countries. Our scientists, architects, consultants and developers are transforming how businesses run through hybrid cloud, pioneering the future of artificial intelligence, creating breakthroughs with quantum computing that will allow us to process information in entirely new ways, defining how blockchain will reshape entire industries, and so much more.

As a business at the forefront of global technology and innovation, IBM’s strength lies in the diversity of our people and recognise the unique value and skills every IBMer brings to the workplace. We believe that innovation comes from seeking out and inspiring diversity in all its dimensions. Achieving the full potential of this diversity remains a business priority that is fundamental to our success.

A key element in our workforce diversity programs is our long-standing commitment to equal opportunity. Business activities such as hiring, promotion and compensation of employees are conducted without regard to gender, race, religion, gender identity or expression, sexual orientation, national origin, disability or age. As a result, IBMers around the world work in an environment where diversity is the norm and innovation can flourish. We have been proud to have LGBTQ+ inclusive policies as a cornerstone of our business strategy for more than 35 years.


The world of work is changing. Technology, globalisation, generational shifts and people’s expectations all shape the workplace of today.

At PwC we foster an inclusive culture which embraces differences – one that allows us to live our values every day, be ourselves and to feel empowered to realise and discover our potential. Because we know that when people from different backgrounds and different points of view work together they create the greatest value – for our business, our clients and society.
