Diversity and Inclusion Initiatives | Modis

Embracing Diversity & Inclusion in the Workplace for a Better Tomorrow

We believe in order to compete in the current hiring landscape, a diverse workforce isn’t a luxury – it’s a necessity

We’re committed to closing diversity gaps and developing technology and engineering teams that are broadly representative of the American workforce.

And we believe closing that gap begins inside our organization. That’s why we’re offering more opportunities than ever for colleagues to get involved in impactful initiatives that can create diversity, foster innovation, and ultimately cultivate a better workforce for all of us.

It’s no secret: diversity enhances performance and efficiency while also encouraging innovation1. Persistent diversity gaps in the fields of engineering and technology have garnered increased scrutiny in recent years, causing many companies to launch new initiatives to recruit, hire, and source more diverse talent pipelines. By partnering with Modis to secure your top talent, you can trust that we’ve incorporated the strategies necessary to serve as an extension of your organization’s diversity and inclusion initiatives.

Empowering Women in Technology & Engineering Careers

We embrace our responsibility to ensure women in the technology and engineering industry are among your most trusted leaders and are treated fairly both inside and outside our organization. By committing to influential coalitions such as Paradigm for Parity®, and partnering with tech industry associations like Women in Technology International, we’re working to ensure women are given the tools, resources, connections and opportunities to close this gender gap.

The Modis Women’s Leadership Forum

The Modis Women's Leadership Forum was established in 2018 to further Modis' commitment to the strategic retention and advancement of women and to provide a successful mix of women colleagues within Modis with the tools, resources, mentoring and networks needed to support them with professional development in the workplace. The Forum is open to all Modis employees, including men who are “allies".

The Modis Women's Leadership Forum proudly hosts regular WebEx meetings featuring various keynote speakers covering topics relevant to success, career growth and personal development. All Modis Colleagues are invited and encouraged to attend and participate in the discussions.

Women in Technology International (WITI)

To further our mission of the advancement of women in the field of technology & engineering, Modis has partnered with Women in Technology International (WITI). WITI’s mission is to empower women worldwide to achieve unimagined possibilities and transformations through technology, leadership and economic prosperity. Through WITI’s resources and influence, we’re helping to ensure women inside and outside of Modis organization contribute, influence and achieve.

Dress for Success

The Adecco Group US Foundation has a national partnership with the Dress for Success® organization in the United States, and the Modis Women’s Forum members are excited to lead involvement initiatives throughout Modis branches. The mission of Dress for Success is “to empower women to achieve economic independence by providing a network of support, professional attire and the development tools to help women thrive in work and in life.” Modis colleague collaboration and teamwork is highly encouraged to leverage the passion and energy of all Adecco Group colleagues in supporting Dress for Success.

Our dedication to Veterans and their families.

We believe hiring military-experienced talent is not charity, but rather one of the best ways your organization can ensure they have a winning team. Through our Modis Military Alliance, we strive to ensure we are participating in the military-affiliated programs that enable us to connect with and hire the top military talent you need to propel your organization forward.
