Dell Technologies race towards a 50/50 gender split of its global workforce by 2030
Dell Technologies has said that by 2030, 50% of its global workforce and 40% of its global leaders will be women.
As of February this year, women comprised 30.4% of Dell’s workforce, and the company revealed it wants 25% of its U.S. workers to be African-American or Hispanic by 2030, which is an increase from almost 13% this year.
In a written statement, the company mentioned that it is dedicated to attracting and developing people who identify as women across its global operations – and especially in technical positions and leadership roles, where they remain underrepresented throughout the industry.
“Gender parity is not only the right thing to do, but also a smart business move: opening opportunity for all while cultivating a culture of inclusion is a business imperative,” the company added.
“Each year through 2030, 50% of the people empowered by our social and education initiatives will be girls, women or underrepresented groups,”

Amongst Dell’s 2030 goals, the company also revealed that it will reduce greenhouse gas emissions by 50% in the next ten years, in a bid to help reduce the effects of climate change.
The company also plan to source 75% of electricity from renewable sources across all Dell facilities by 2030, and 100% by 2040.
“Our 2030 vision, which we call Progress Made Real, is rooted in three core pillars that we believe best represent our commitments for social impact: advancing sustainability, cultivating inclusion, and transforming lives—all with the power of technology,” said Dell Technologies’ Chief Responsibility Officer, Christine Fraser.
“Foundational to the vision is our commitment to upholding ethics and privacy. We’re going to continue to commit to areas like the circular economy and protecting human rights, including the rights of our own team members, as well as the many people in our extended supply chain.”
