At Fujitsu, they believe in the power of human difference to create a better future in a digital and diverse world. They understand that the insights of many voices will make Fujitsu stronger and more innovative. Fujitsu strives to be a place where everyone can be completely themselves.
Fujitsu's mission is to create a workforce that reflects the diverse nature of the Australian and New Zealand communities. They are committed to implementing strategies aimed at making team members feel supported with access to the tools needed to flourish in their careers. Their Diversity and Inclusion policy covers five key pillars: Disability, Fujitsu Pride, Gender, Generational, and Culture and Reconciliation.
Fujitsu welcomes all applicants, regardless of, for example, gender, ethnicity, age and sexual orientations to apply for their Graduate Program.
Fujitsu believes that a successful business is one that taps into everyone’s ideas and strengths.
Striking a gender balance is one of Fujitsu's key areas of focus. This year, there has been an impressive increase in the number of women in Graduate and traineeship programs, technology-focused roles, and executive roles.
Fujitsu is a proud member of Females in Information Technology (FiTT), an industry association that aims to create a voice for women in ICT, promote gender balance in the industry, and provides mentorship and development opportunities for women in Australia. Fujitsu is also a corporate member of Women in Information and Communication (WIC) in Canberra and supports a number of initiatives in this region.
Fujitsu celebrates exceptional women and is proud to have had finalists in the NZ Reseller News Women in ICT Awards for the last two years.
Fujitsu is dedicated to creating sustainable career paths for First Nations peoples by providing meaningful opportunities to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Graduates to achieve at their full potential. They recognise that responsible business involves being committed to national reconciliation by preserving mutual and respectful relationships with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples. Fujitsu New Zealand is committed to providing opportunities to Maori and Pasifika people, and promotes and celebrates the language and cultures that influence our business.
In 2019, Fujitsu Australia launched their two-year Innovate Reconciliation Action Plan that commits Fujitsu to measureable actions that support Indigenous-owned businesses, develop cultural awareness and competency within Fujitsu, and cultivate Indigenous careers in the IT sector. Fujitsu achieved a milestone figure of $1M spent with Indigenous-owned businesses in their supply chain, nearly tripling their spend figure from FY18/19, with support from Indigenous Defence & Infrastructure Consortium (IDiC) and Supply Nation.
In addition, Fujitsu recently launched an Indigenous Australian Internship Program in 2020, where they welcomed Indigenous undergraduate students as Interns in partnership with Walanga Muru, the Indigenous unit at Macquarie University. Managers, Buddies and HR Partners completed Corporate Cultural Safety Training to best support and develop the Interns and enable a safe and inclusive workplace. This Program was a meaningful step towards developing career pathways for Indigenous students in the ICT industry.
Fujitsu New Zealand is currently working on its Maori and Pasifika Strategy and intends to launch this during Maori Language Week in September 2021. Learn more about Fujistu Reconciliation Action Plan here.

Fujitsu participated in AccessAbility Day in November 2020, hosting job seekers with a disability across human resources, sustainability, data centres, repairs, general IT and quality assurance.

Fujitsu continues to strive to cater for employees who require adjustments, including but not limited to a range of flexible work policies, adjustable-height desks and accessible entrances and parking.
Fujitsu seeks to ensure all employees feel safe and respected without regard for sexual orientation or gender identity.
Last year, Fujitsu joined Pride in Diversity, which is Australia’s largest employer support program for LGBTI+ inclusion, to support with their activities to promote LGBTI+ inclusion. As part of their three-year strategy, Fujitsu will take part in the Australian Workplace Equality Index and continue to do so in future years to benchmark their practices. Fujitsu also participated in the Australian Workplace Equality Index Survey for the first time, which they have used to inform their strategy towards creating a work environment that is truly inclusive of the LGBTI+ community.
Fujitsu have increased promotion relating to training and awareness sessions offered by Pride in Diversity to their employees, as well as launching the ‘Walking in Rainbow shoes’ online awareness course on their eLearning platform for all employees.

Fujitsu is ambitious to be a global leader in workplace diversity. Their diversity and inclusion group’s generational pillar aims to nurture and promote connected relationships across all generations at Fujitsu.
A recently launched initiative is the Reverse Mentoring Program, which sees Graduates and experienced colleagues get the chance to mentor executive leadership members. This program was designed to give Graduates an opportunity to share their insights, experiences and bring a fresh perspective on their business, strategy and culture. This program provides leaders with the opportunity to deepen their insights into diversity and inclusion and allows feedback to be received in a safe space.
Fujitsu’s Next Generation Network (NGN) is another example of a Generational focused program. It runs across Australia and New Zealand, where NGN ambassadors lead roundtable sessions and events such as trivia, boxing, fun runs, fitness boot camps, pub quizzes and speed networking that aim to include employees across different generations.
Fujitsu supports the Young Enterprise Trust in New Zealand, which fosters entrepreneurship and financial literacy of young New Zealanders.
