In 2022, we were presented with new challenges and opportunities. Even with the uncertainty, CDW remained relentless in our focus to our customers, communities, partners and coworkers.

In no specific order, here are a few accomplishments that we are proud to celebrate this year.

After two years of virtual or hybrid execution, CDW’s Partner Summit returned to Las Vegas this year for our first in-person event with our top partners since November of 2019. During the event, the winners of the 2022 CDW Partner of the Year Awards were announced. The awards celebrated another year of successful collaboration and growth with CDW’s top-performing partners that provide exemplary support to CDW teams, ultimately enabling industry-leading outcomes for customers.
Since the start of the pandemic, we’ve been guided by our priorities of keeping coworkers healthy and safe, serving the mission-driven needs of our customers, and supporting our communities. This year we continued to test and learn new ways of working in a hybrid environment while offering coworkers flexibility in managing if and when they would like to work from a CDW office location. While we believe in the benefits of working digitally, there is power in being together, face-to-face. Many of our office locations across the globe hosted "ReunITe" events for coworkers to celebrate being together again and strengthen our connections.
Community care and giving are core to our company culture and part of what makes CDW the company it is. As part of our global Social Impact program, we are committed to fostering partnerships with organizations that share our focus on digital equity and further our goal of empowering our communities to reach their unlimited potential.
CDW has a longstanding partnership with the American Red Cross and this year we have extended our commitment by joining the organization’s Disaster Responder Program. Disaster Responder members pledge financial and in-kind donations year-round in advance of disasters to ensure the Red Cross is ready to help those in need and prepare people and communities for unexpected crises.
This year, CDW celebrated Empower Month – a month dedicated to empowering coworkers globally in their giving, with opportunities to engage with their local communities on a deeper level. From creating activity kits for pediatric hospital patients to hosting food drives to planting trees and more, coworkers across all functions took part in this global initiative and together we empowered communities across the world.
Our purpose at CDW is to make technology work so that people can do great things. We are proud of all that we accomplished together in 2022 and look forward to our continued and collaborative success in 2023.
