Women in Technology

Company News, EMEA, Americas
Getronics has launched a global drive to promote gender equality within the ICT industry.

 

As a global player with clients from different backgrounds and cultures, the company has always attached great importance to equality in all every form.

 

Following the establishment of a working group whose members are female role models, the Getronics will organise a series of regional Round Table events to identify new talent that can be nurtured further on a dedicated coaching programme.

 

Other activities planned under the Women in Technology programme which runs initially until 2020, include increased company participating in external events, and engaging with universities and organisations that support the career development of women.

 

“We know  human capital is the core of business success, and that diverse talent is the heart of innovation", says Group Global Head of Human Capital and Change, Deborah Exell. "Diversity is not just a buzz word, however, as differing perspectives and unique points of view are a vital force for growth.

 

"Moreover, for our employees to truly represent the communities in which they live and work around the world means embracing difference".

 

Caroline Montgomery, Getronics' Global Head of Engineering & Solutions, adds: “Our culture is founded on respect, integrity and transparency, and we act as we believe by breaking down old barriers to ensure everyone has a voice".
