Inclusion and Diversity
at Commvault

A message from CEO Sanjay Mirchandani

“At Commvault, we are committed to Inclusion and Diversity. Not just as responsible corporate citizens, but as individuals. It’s in our values and in how we empower our team members to thrive and reach their full potential. We do this by fostering an environment that celebrates our differences and ensures we all feel included and supported. And, as CEO, I am committed to making impactful changes for our people, our customers, and our community.”

Our I&D Approach

At Commvault, we believe that diversity is more than a program – it is a business imperative. In partnership with our leadership team, we not only drive the ability to be a best-in-class data management organization but uphold our value in the marketplace by leading as an employer of choice. Our commitment is driven and executed by a three-pronged approach to Diversity and Inclusion: Workplace Inclusion, Workforce Diversity and Personal Accountability.

To fortify our strategy, we continue to elevate our employee engagement efforts – which is the foundation of our approach. We have implemented an Employee Resource Group operating model and have established Four ERGs: CV WIT (Women in Technology), Multi-Culture, LGBTQ+ & Allies and VALOR (Veterans) to provide opportunity for cross-cultural learning, mentoring and relationship building across employees. We continue to be committed to our focus to secure the very best talent, with a concerted effort to expound on and build a truly inclusive and diverse pipeline of candidates. We are committed to providing a clear line of sight to career progression while investing in the development, creativity and aspirational needs of all employees. 

Employee Resource Groups

Commvault’s Employee Resource Groups (ERGs) offer multiple points of entry for all employees to get involved, drive I & D initiatives and be allies for all dimensions of diversity. Our ERGs are voluntary, employee lead groups designed to foster an inclusive workplace by championing under represented groups like women, veterans, members of the LGBTQ+ community, as well as ethnically and racially diverse people. Our ERGs allow employees to feel more connected to Commvault by providing them the space to bring their unique personal attributes, be part of a community of collective thought leaders, and advocates for inclusion and diversity.

At Commvault, our ERGs are dynamic and passionate about driving lasting and impactful change. Our current ERGs include:
