Launches a Women’s Leadership Center
Cary, North Carolina, – December 20, 2018 – HCL Technologies (HCL), a leading global technology company, celebrated its 10-year presence in North Carolina with an event graced by the Honorable Governor Roy Cooper, HCL’s senior leadership, customers, members of state organizations and academia. After a thorough evaluation and site selection search, HCL had chosen Cary, North Carolina as the location of its first Global Delivery Center (GDC) in 2008. In 2015, HCL expanded in North Carolina, with the company announcing the addition of more jobs. HCL now employs 1,500 people in the state with the Cary GDC offering a wide array of innovative technology solutions and services.
To commemorate the North Carolina milestone and its 30th anniversary in the United States, HCL also announced the launch of its Women’s Leadership Center, based in North Carolina, with dedicated physical space and formal initiatives in STEM training, leadership development and mentorship opportunities for women. Research shows that the United Sates will have 1.4 million computing jobs in 2020, but only 3 percent will be held by women.1 The Women’s Leadership Center is a critical step in HCL’s commitment to diversity and inclusion, working with the ecosystem in North Carolina to facilitate, enable, and empower local institutions and communities of influence to advance career and leadership opportunities for women in technology.
“With our top-flight workforce, commitment to education, and friendly economic climate, companies like HCL find success doing business in North Carolina,” said Governor Roy Cooper. “I congratulate HCL on this important milestone and look forward to working together to build a North Carolina that works for everyone.”
“Our Global Delivery Center in Cary, North Carolina, delivers mission-critical operations for a large number of our blue-chip clients consisting of some of the biggest corporations in the world. It also houses world-class talent in IT Infrastructure and Application Management, Datacenter Transformation, Cloud Migration, Application Modernization, Network and Cybersecurity Services, Products & Platforms and a host of related technologies,” said C Vijayakumar, President and CEO, HCL Technologies. “As we celebrate 10 years of its operations, I want to thank all the stakeholders from government, community, academia, and public partners, who have joined hands with us on this momentous journey. As a mark of our continued commitment to the State we are happy to announce new expansion plans for our Cary Center and the opening of our first-of-its-kind ‘Women’s Leadership Center,’ which will add another unique element to our longstanding and rich relationship with the local community.”
