Community and People Impact
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 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.
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:
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 expanded into the United Kingdom in June 2021, with future expansion plans for Asia, United States and Europe.
DXC is a proud partner of The Scott-Morgan Foundation, which is on a mission to apply advanced technologies to empower people with extreme disabilities, illnesses, and other challenging conditions to continue to lead full and socially rich lives. The Foundation was established by Dr Peter Scott-Morgan, a visionary British roboticist, author, and speaker who, in 2017, was diagnosed with motor neurone disease (MND). DXC is leading technology roadmap and integration for The Foundation, bringing all the unique pieces of hardware, software, and AI into an integrated working solution designed to aid communication and mobility. The vision is to not only to collaborate with Peter, but to create an open and scalable set of technologies that could one day help others around the world to overcome life-challenging conditions.

At DXC, we care about the global environment and take our global stewardship seriously. That’s why we celebrate global Earth Day every year.
In 2022 we enjoyed switching from virtual events back to in-person activities. Our people around the world invested in our planet by taking active roles in initiatives supporting their local environmental programs and activities. Jointly, we cleaned up parks, beautified beaches, planted trees and more.
We regularly discuss and share our ideas for making our world a little greener every day, learning from each other’s best practices. But we don’t just talk; we act, inspiring change in the communities we do business in. We make every day Earth Day!
At DXC, we invest in the progress of our employees. These investments include:
DXC volunteers in Iberia are making a difference in the lives of children by promoting digital literacy via a coding contest. This fun and collaborative initiative to awaken and foster children’s interest in and passion for technology helps them develop and hone their computational thinking skills using a STEM approach.

DXC Vietnam’s commitment to corporate responsibility was very evident in 2020. The most recent of the many initiatives it undertook last year was to provide major relief to two rural districts in Thua Thien Hue central province after a series of devastating floods. Read more.
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.
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.
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.
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.
