On Friday 21st May 2021 we celebrate ‘World Day for Cultural Diversity for Dialogue and Development’, also known as ‘Multiculturalism Day’. This annual day does not only celebrate the richness of the world’s cultures, but also the essential role of intercultural dialogue for achieving peace and sustainable development. At Capgemini we support Diversity and Inclusion as we believe that diversity is a key driver of innovation and critical component of being successful. Our colleagues actively participate in Diversity & Inclusion initiatives, one example being the ‘ECHO Mentoring Program’, supported by our partner ECHO – a dedicated non-profit organization focused on Diversity & Inclusion in (higher) education and the labour market. Our mentors support students with a non-western migration background or refugees new to the Dutch labour market. One of the aims in this program is to stimulate intercultural dialogue and learn from each other. In this interview, Tessa - a Manager at Capgemini Invent NL and one of our dedicated mentors - shares her experience as a mentor and Shakila shares her experience as a mentee.
