EMC values an inclusive work environment where every employee is encouraged to share their ideas and talents so we can leverage our diversity. From our diversity, EMC draws the strength to be a world-class company.
EMC is committed to creating an environment of inclusion that has many dimensions—cross-geography, cross-organization, and across traditional lines of differences, such as gender, sexual orientation, ethnicity, and race.

Employee circles — Promoting and leveraging diversity at a grass-roots level, EMC has a number of employee circles-groups organized and run by employees themselves. Supported and funded by our leadership team, these affinity groups provide employees the opportunity to participate and self-lead by arranging social, educational, and philanthropic programs for their colleagues. Additionally, the circles allow employees to share their personal experiences and collective talents, while offering the benefits of career development, retention, and productivity improvement. Some of the groups within EMC’s Diversity and Inclusion organization include:

The company’s competency models, used throughout EMC, define behaviors and actions that reflect this same mission.
Working mothers — For new and expecting mothers, EMC is rolling out a new workshop series and exercise program designed to make going on leave and returning to work less stressful. This workshop informs and establishes dialog with the women about the perks, policies, and opportunities available to them. In addition, all EMC benefits representatives have guidelines on the benefits and needs of women going on maternity leave, so they can service new and expecting mothers swiftly and effectively.
