Feeling comfortable and proud to share your journey, ideas and perspective is essential, helping us shape tomorrow’s mobility, no matter your background.
Just imagine what we could achieve if you could be your true, authentic self?
After all, the world captured in our maps is much stronger if people from all roads of life come together.
I think if you enjoy working with (location) technology, your gender shouldn’t matter. Being a woman is not a reason for not getting into this industry, even if you think it’s dominated by men. Do whatever you feel like doing, if you’re good at it and it makes you happy.
Pride for me is a reminder that my reality - where I can be myself at my workplace, and be accepted and respected regardless of my sexual orientation - is an exception... At TomTom, we are all about the journey, and the journey to love yourself is definitely much better when traveled together.
Director Business Development
As a queer woman at TomTom, I have always felt comfortable being my authentic self, in the company and especially with my direct team. I see the efforts TomTom is making to promote women's roles in a technical company, and I am proud of the progress they have made and the steps they've taken so far.

Where are we now
We're at the start of our journey and we're excited about the possibilities going forward. Here are some of the facts currently:
TomTom’ers employed worldwide
80 different nationalities

Improving gender diversity is our current focus. Our target is to reach 34% female representation by 2024. And here are the objectives to help us achieve that:
Increase the number of women in engineering positions
Increase the number of women in senior leadership positions
Sustain and nurture an inclusive work environment through initiatives and events
We're committed to improving representation and inclusivity every day through initiatives that connect with TomTom'ers.
Celebrating our differences
We organize many events throughout the year with the aim of celebrating what makes every TomTom’er unique, learning from each other and taking part in activities that are not only fun but educational.
TomTom also hosts both unconscious bias and allyship workshops. These educate TomTom’ers on how they can avoid stereotyping, support colleagues and develop stronger relationships with them, while creating a more inclusive environment for everyone.
Accelerating the careers of women
TomTom continues to encourage women to join the tech industry through mentorships, sponsorships and more. We also help prepare senior female leaders for their futures through executive leadership programs.
We will continue to create programs and initiatives that look to reverse the inequality we still see in society, while bringing more members of underrepresented communities into the tech industry. Diversity and inclusion are essential to our overall mission. If we’re going to move the world forward, it can’t just be with our technology and products – it must also be with our people and culture.
