Inclusion

HomeOur Offer Inclusion

Different perspectives lead to new possibilities

Our difference makes us stronger. The best innovations happen when diverse people with different perspectives collaborate. That’s why we’re building an environment where everyone can thrive. Where we track our progress through regular check-ins rather than annual surveys. And where everyone plays a part in making people feel welcome and accepted.

Gender Equality

We want to be recognised as the world’s best employer for women by 2025. To get there, we’re working closely with teams across the business to develop more progressive initiatives for women, including our global maternity policy which offers 16 weeks of fully paid maternity leave.

LGBT+

Discover some of the ways we’re making sure Vodafone is a place where you can be open and honest about your sexuality and gender.

Disability

At Vodafone, we’re committed to supporting our colleagues with disabilities and their families. One such example is disABILITY, an online platform that breaks down myths and allows everyone at Vodafone to understand the lived experiences of colleagues with disabilities.

Race, Ethnicity & Cultural heritage

Whether it’s at work or in the community, we’re doing our part to end racial inequality wherever it exists. The more we can do together, the more of an impact we can make.

Our global commitment on menopause

Vodafone’s global commitment on menopause is part of our aim to build a more inclusive culture and our desire for women to see Vodafone as the place to be for their career through all stages of their working life.

 

Vodafone’s independent research conducted by Opinium in 2021 highlights and details the workplace impacts for women experiencing menopause symptoms, based on a survey of over 5,000 people in five countries who had experienced menopause while at work.

 

Our comprehensive toolkit for those experiencing menopause and for the people supporting them is available for individuals or organisations to download, use and share.

Awards

We’re proud to see that our commitment to being truly inclusive has been recognised by a number of organisations, including Stonewall, The Sunday Times and The Times. We’ve featured on the Thomson Reuters Diversity & Inclusion Index, and on Bloomberg’s Gender Equality Index.
