Indra, one of the leading global technology and consulting companies, has adhered to the Standards of Conduct for Business proposed by the United Nations to address discrimination against lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and intersex (LGBTI) people, for the purpose of ensuring an inclusive work environment.
The Standards of Conduct developed by the United Nations Human Rights Office in collaboration with the Institute for Human Rights and Business are based on the Guiding Principles on Business and Human Rights and the Global Compact. They present companies with the measures they can and should take to treat LGBTI people as equals, both at work and in the communities in which they carry out their activities.
By publicly adhering to these principles, Indra strengthens its commitment to respecting the human rights of the LGBTI community and undertakes to establish measures to monitor compliance, to avoid any type of discrimination and to provide the necessary support to this community in the workplace. It also rejects any discrimination against LGBTI suppliers, distributors or clients and must use its position to prevent its partners from doing so too. Furthermore, Indra shall become an active agent for the defence of the human rights of these people in the countries in which it operates.
Indra thus fulfills one of the milestones scheduled in its Sustainability and Social Impact Master Plan 2020-2023, regarding people and talent, an area in which it seeks to create a motivating work environment that promotes innovation, commitment and equal opportunities.

Indra is committed to diversity as an element that promotes innovation, enriches organizations and improves productivity and competitiveness.
