Diversity, Inclusion and Opportunity

Through a comprehensive set of employee-focused initiatives, we promote diversity by nurturing a culture of inclusion and opportunity, and through measurable actions.

Executive Commitment and Councils

The Xerox Executive Diversity Council includes about 15 senior leaders who meet three times a year to review Xerox diversity practices and to provide recommendations to our CEO and head of Human Resources. This group focuses on:

  • Workforce representation.
  • Work environment.
  • Diverse customer markets.
  • Diversity practices, including training.
  • Organizational efforts to improve multicultural diversity.

Caucus groups, independent groups of Xerox employees dating from the 1960s, play an important role in our diversity story. These caucuses, similar to networking and affinity groups, are instrumental in advocating openness, opportunity and inclusion for the entire Xerox community. They work with management to achieve common business objectives, self-advocacy and to create an environment of inclusion. Six caucus groups currently exist to address the concerns and meet the needs of employees who are African-American, Hispanic, Asian, women, African-American women, gay, lesbian, transgender and bisexual.

Through executive roundtables, our CEO and other senior leaders meet with diverse teams of Xerox employees, often representing one of our caucus groups. During these informal sessions, participants share their views on Xerox’s work environment and business concerns, and identify actionable items for discussion with Xerox’s senior team. The process ensures that the executive leadership team and the CEO are working together to resolve concerns about the work environment.

Non-discrimination Policy

Xerox complies with Equal Employment Opportunity (EEO) guidelines and all applicable federal, state and local laws that govern the hiring and treatment of its employees. Xerox does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, religious belief, sex, age, national origin, citizenship status, marital status, union status, sexual orientation or gender identity. Neither does it discriminate against protected veterans, including veterans of the Vietnam era and disabled veterans, individuals with a disability or employees who take protected leave time.

By focusing on diversity in all areas of hiring, Xerox promotes and retains the brightest people best suited for our business. Our hiring and promotion efforts ensure a deep, diverse reserve of strong players who are ready to assume leadership roles.

Our hiring practices include engaging Xerox people to recruit at universities and career fairs, providing scholarships to minority students interested in information technology and offering internships and co-op programs to diverse groups of students and new graduates.
