DXC is working to improve the lives of our employees, and the communities in which we live and work.
Here are just a few of our leading projects and efforts.
The DXC Foundation
The DXC Foundation is a registered U.S. charity that invests in community groups as a way to engage our employees and develop our relationships with clients, partners and communities. Its programs also strengthen our business performance and enhance our global brand.
Using targeted grants and programs, the DXC Foundation partners with our employees around the world, making it easy for them to make a difference both locally and globally.
The DXC Foundation also oversees the DXC Gives program, which helps the communities in which we live and do business. It also celebrates the volunteerism and dedication of our people.
In addition, the DXC Foundation sponsors a quarterly Charity Challenge. All DXC employees can enter, and the winners are given the opportunity to guide donations to the charities of their choice. DXC employees participate in the Challenge by submitting brief essays that describe acts of community service by DXC employees. The winners typically demonstrate excellence in collaboration, problem-solving, energy and community impact.
One program recently helped by the DXC Charity Challenge is Alzheimer Scotland. This group provides support and advice for those diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease and those who have family members suffering from this disease. DXC volunteers have helped the program by sponsoring fundraising events, including a Christmas Hackathon for girls under the age of 17.
DXC India Foundation
The DXC India Foundation aims to improve the social mobility of underrepresented/underprivileged groups by collaborating with nonprofit partners on fostering digital literacy and the learning of new skills, particularly in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM). Our balanced, integrated approach enables the greatest impact in areas of major importance to DXC, including:
- Education: Fostering global literacy, with a focus on STEM learning for children from kindergarten to college age
- Health and wellness: Enhancing people’s health and wellness at a local and global level, with a focus on veterans, people with disabilities, and challenges related to child hunger and poverty
- Disaster relief: Supporting emergency assistance to those in need, after a disaster or period of crisis or trauma
At DXC, we’re reimagining neurodiversity. The DXC Dandelion Program helps individuals on the autism spectrum build valuable IT skills and careers. The program combines robotics with commercial IT industry teaching and methodologies to help participants develop technical, life and executive functioning skills. To date, we have established 10 DXC Dandelion teams across Australia, working within DXC’s public and private sector clients, to employ more than 120 people on the autism spectrum. The program is expanding into the United Kingdom in 2021, with future expansion plans for Asia, United States and Europe.
DXC and Earth Day
At DXC, we care about the global environment. That’s why we join in celebrating global Earth Day every year.
DXC employees around the world join the celebrations by supporting their local environmental programs and initiatives. In 2019, we cleaned up beaches, planted trees and more. In 2020, we responded to the global pandemic by switching to virtual events. These included a global Big Green Earth Day quiz. In 2021, we shared little acts of going green across the globe, learning from each other’s best practices. We enjoyed hundreds of wonderful pictures showing the various environments our people live in. We look forward to Earth Day 2022!
Employee Development at DXC
At DXC, we invest in the progress of our employees. These investments include:
- DXC University, our online learning platform, that served some 1.8 million learning hours in 2020 to more than 100,000 of our employees.
- DXC Onboarding, a web app that helps new employees, their managers and their colleagues worldwide. In 2020, this web app was used by more than 69,000 unique visitors in 73 countries.
- DXC Technologist Reskilling, a program that has helped more than 31,100 of our employees complete advanced training in next-generation technologies and approaches, including agile development, cloud and virtualisation.
- DXC Transformation Centers, where our employees work with clients to co-develop innovative solutions to pressing business problems.
- DXC Technology Awards and DXC Tech Honors, which encourage our employees to engage in innovative thinking, advanced technology expertise and future-ready solutions for our clients.

DXC Bulgaria helps local families access remote education
Aware of the gravity of the situation and staying true to DXC’s spirit and strong social responsibility values, the employees in Bulgaria decided to take action to support the local community in the best way they can – by using the power of technology. They launched a campaign called “We Care”. More than 1,100 old corporate computers were collected, refurbished, and distributed to families who needed them. DXC was also providing internet service whenever needed. Read more.
Trees for the Future
This project, based in Bucharest, Romania, aims to make the world a better place by planting trees. Recently, 20 DXC employees volunteered to spend a day planting acacia trees with the group. In addition, DXC contributed 1,000 trees to be planted.
DXC recently collaborated with United Way, a nonprofit partner, to support lake restoration in Bengaluru, India, and improve the local water quality. As a part of this project, we cleared the area of debris, plastic and nonbiodegradable waste. We also provided new, basic amenities such as benches, children’s play areas and open-air gyms. These activities have improved the quality of local families’ lives, supporting about 20,000 residents around the lake, including children, women, elderly persons and birds and aquatic life.
In the Philippines, a DXC group known as Inspire recently volunteered to help survivors of a damaging typhoon. Some 8,500 victims of the typhoon had been moved to temporary shelters, and the DXC team helped to supply them with 1,700 boxes of food and other relief supplies.
Education without disruption
DXC has partnered with Bhumi India, Isha Foundation and Samarthanam Trust for the Disabled, for educational scholarships. We have supported disabled and underprivileged children in continuing their education without disruption. Across India, we have provided scholarships to 1,292 underprivileged and daily wage workers’ children, and to 150 persons with disabilities. This has helped the children to continue their education via schools or colleges of their choice.
DXC’s First Nations Program in Australia
The vision of DXC’s First Nations Program in Australia is to support Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples and their communities in achieving self-determination and proportional representation in all areas of our society. DXC strives to realise this vision by working with First Nations community groups and businesses, to identify and support the outcomes and endeavors they wish to achieve.
