Pride@IHSMarkit are groups open to all employees that aim to create a culture and a company that is welcoming and inclusive for LGBTQ employees. These groups raise awareness through communication and events with active employee Pride groups in the US, UK and India. Their remit, both internal and external, is to engage with partner networks, clients and the communities around us. In 2017, we launched a company-wide LGBTQ Ally program. An ally can be anyone who supports the LGBTQ community.

HeForShe campaign

IHS Markit is proud to participate in the HeForShe campaign to underline our commitment to gender diversity and equality in the workplace. In our pilot rollout, the London office came up with five key actions, unique to the office, that every employee can adopt and implement to improve gender equality.

As a HeForShe ambassador, an employee commits to vocally and proactively uphold these pledges:

  • Challenge unconscious gender bias
  • Ensure all voices are heard in meetings
  • Share office housework evenly
  • Encourage all team members to realize their potential and develop equally
  • Make work work for parents

Currently, we have full programs in London and Bangalore and emerging programs in Englewood, Coulsdon and New York. Our 2018 goal is to rollout the HeForShe campaign to our larger offices, engaging at least 50% of our employees in this campaign.
