PRIDE provides a space for LGBTQ+ employees and allies to promote equality through education, advocacy, empowerment and representation globally within NTT DATA and our communities.

Bob Pryor Headshot

At NTT DATA, we believe that diverse perspectives lead to a stronger culture, more innovative ideas and better services. I’m proud of our team and company in scoring a 100 on our first time applying, which reflects our longstanding commitment to ensuring that NTT DATA’s policies and benefits advance equality for and inclusion of LGBTQ+ team members and their families.

Supporting the LGBTQ+ Community

We’re stronger because of our differences. An environment that celebrates our LGBTQ+ employees and allies creates an inclusive community and a stronger work family.

We have established a global gender-neutral dress code

We provide equal benefits to same-sex couples, as well as transgender health benefits, in the United States and in several other countries around the world.

Our inclusive policies explicitly prohibit discrimination based on sexual orientation or gender identity.


I am proud to work for a company that values all its employees, including members of the LGBTQ+ community. The PRIDE ERG has been an important resource for many of our team members, including me. I always considered myself to be a well-informed ally, but I found I had plenty to learn when my daughter Kelsie came out. Happily, less than a week later, the PRIDE ERG conducted an LGBTQ+ parenting panel. The timing was amazing and the discussion both helpful and affirming. I am grateful for the opportunity to deepen my allyship by serving as the PRIDE Executive sponsor, and to work with our dedicated community members and allies to help make NTT DATA a great place to work for everyone.
