TD SYNNEX launches group to support disabled co-workers

TD SYNNEX has launched Limitless, a business resource group (BRG) dedicated to ensuring that co-workers with disabilities and neurodiversity of all kinds feel welcome, comfortable, and fully represented within the company’s UK and Ireland operations.

The scope of the Limitless BRG covers all visible and hidden disabilities, such as hearing or visual impairments, Crohn’s disease, and epilepsy, as well as the broad differences in the types of minds and thinking that are defined by the term neurodiversity, such as dyslexia, ADHD, and autism. It has been estimated that 15 to 20 per cent of the world's population exhibits some form of neurodivergence.

David Watts, Managing Director, UK, and Ireland, TD SYNNEX said, “TD SYNNEX is committed to maintaining a culture that celebrates the qualities and contribution that all our co-workers make. Our business resource groups are all about recognising that and giving individuals every chance to express their feelings and views in a safe and open environment. Through Limitless we hope to make a positive difference for co-workers and increase awareness and sensitivity to disability or neurodiversity right across the UK and Ireland organisation.”

A series of initial launch presentations and meetings will take place over the next few weeks at which TD SYNNEX co-workers will be encouraged to get involved in Limitless. These will be led by members of the Limitless panel, which includes co-workers from HR, sales and business development, operations, and senior management.

Subsequently, Limitless discussion groups will be held approximately every six to eight weeks, with co-workers from all TD SYNNEX UK and Ireland locations invited to take part. Information, notices, and updates on group activity will be posted on the TD SYNNEX intranet.

Anna-Marie Constantinou, Chair of the Limitless BRG panel and Director, Cisco Business Unit, Europe, at TD SYNNEX added, “at TD SYNNEX, we want to create an environment that welcomes, celebrates, and nurtures difference and disability. Where everyone is valued for their individuality and strengths and can flourish by being themselves, authentically and without limits.

“Limitless is about making sure that co-workers with any kind of disability or neurodiversity are given the same opportunities and choices and that their individuality is recognised in every aspect of their working life. We want all our co-workers to be treated fairly and equally and to feel that the workplace and environment are adapted to their needs so that they can make the most of the positives that diversity brings and perform to the very best of their unique abilities.”

Limitless is the fourth TD SYNNEX BRG to go live in the UK and Ireland. It follows the successful establishment of Elevate, which is dedicated to the empowerment of women; SPECTRUM, which provides support for LGBTQ+ co-workers; and Embrace, which celebrates racial, cultural, and religious differences. TD SYNNEX’s BRGs provide positive forums for the company’s co-workers to discuss common experiences and goals with individuals of or similar interests.
