HP is making a concerted effort to support women’s career advancement. The company aims to achieve 50/50 gender equality in HP leadership by 2030. HP also commits to achieving greater than 30 per cent technical women and women in engineering roles by 2030.

In addition to championing gender equality, HP aims to have its racial/ethnic representation meet or exceed market availability in the United States by 2030.

Moving forward, HP commits to maintaining a higher than 90 per cent rating on its internal inclusion index for all employee demographics annually. It also seeks to be universally ranked as employer of choice for underrepresented groups in the technology industry by 2030.

Further, HP will create a visible and resilient supply chain with the goal to assure respect for labour-related human rights for 100 per cent of its key contracted manufacturing suppliers and higher risk next tier suppliers by 2030.
