Breaking down the barriers to digital equality
For everyone to benefit from technology and the opportunities it creates, we need a truly diverse technology sector. It’s our goal to ensure individuals get equal opportunities to thrive in the new era of work.
Read about the key ways we plan to address the lack of diversity in technology.
Striving for diversity, equity and inclusion
We have six commitments that will help us advance diversity, equity and inclusion at Sage, and foster a stronger sense of belonging. These commitments are for all our colleagues, customers, suppliers, partners and communities. We have made them public, so you can hold us to account and help ensure that our actions, values and behaviours are at the standard you expect from us.
