In NTT, we are promoting human rights, diversity and inclusion through integrity and strong ethical values that are embedded in our business innovations and technologies. We have three main focus areas: respect for human rights, diversity and inclusion and creating new work style models.
With anxiety and depression costing the global economy $1 trillion a year in lost productivity, investing in workplace wellbeing is a win-win for employees, employers and broader society

Respect for human rights
Respecting human rights is an important foundation for creating a safe, secure, prosperous, and sustainable society. NTT strives to correctly understand and recognize each country's and region's laws, cultures, religions and values.
Diversity & Inclusion
NTT believes that differences are considered as value, and we aim to transform that value into a viable force. We are creating workplaces where a diverse range of employees can achieve their full potential, assuring diversity, equity, and inclusion.
Creating new work style models
Establishing and maintaining a healthy and motivated workforce results in a more positive contribution to society and higher levels of productivity. That's why NTT is embracing new working models that better accommodate employees' daily working lives.
NTT is committed to the right to learn. In 2017, NTT “adopted” a government-aided girls’ school in Mumbai, India. Thanks to the computer lab, science lab or the library, or through the vocational training sessions, more than 1,000 girls are now computer literate and 95% enroll in college education.
Toastmasters International is a non-profit organization that provides teaching and education in public speaking and leadership skills. Adult programming is delivered through both public and company-sponsored clubs—like Toastmasters at NTT DATA.
Companies that are more diverse and inclusive are 35% more likely to outperform. The mission of this NTT Ltd employee is to ensure greater equality and equity at work for all in the company.
Girl Scouts is a global movement dating back to 1912. In that time, it has seen significant change and today The World Association of Girl Guides and Girl Scouts is the largest voluntary movement dedicated to girls and young women.
It is hard to believe that in some countries today it is still illegal to be gay. In fact homosexual activity remains illegal in 70 countries - only 65% of people living in United Nations countries can now be considered in legally consenting, same-sex relationships.
Death is not a topic that comes easily to most and yet it will happen to us all at some point. At the age of 16, Maurice was told his father had died. They hadn’t met for some time and there had been several years where there was no contact at all so the impact of this news was profound.
Mental health affects us all. For some it is a deeply personal experience that takes hold at a particular point in time. For others, mental health may be something that witnessed through the experiences of others – friends, family or relatives.
Job seekers returning to work often find themselves in a bind. They’ve had a great start in their careers, excellent skills, sought after degrees and yet their lack of recent work experience means employers are reluctant to hire them. How do you get experience if no-one is willing to give you a chance.
In North America, employees at NTT DATA have been keen to join a sustainability action group led by Fernanda Gallardo. What started out as a small group of friends has now become the fastest growing employee resource group within the organization and it’s a topic about which people are passionate.
