At CDW, we embed diversity and inclusion into the fiber of everything that we do. We ensure all coworkers have the resources required to perform at their highest level – whether it’s collaboration tools, ongoing training or resource groups. We know that tomorrow’s ideas don’t come from yesterday’s thinking, so we prefer working with people who see the world differently.
