Inspire Inclusion: International Women’s Day 2024

Women are not new to telecommunications, in fact, this industry is unique because its development advanced through the work of women.

While historically this industry played an essential part in women’s liberation through their work, ongoing efforts to drive inclusion are vital for ensuring a thriving environment for women’s empowerment. This involves a shared commitment to amplify the voices of women and implement initiatives that provide them with equal opportunities for growth and success.

The journey starts by recognizing diversity as a fundamental strength and acknowledging its role in bringing richness to decision-making processes. 

How Are We Cultivating Inclusion Within Our Organizational Culture?

For starters, we’ve elevated the representation of women actively involved in industry bodies and pivotal decision-making platforms, entities that are amplifying their efforts in creating awareness but also leading the way in promoting diversity and inclusion.

An equally vital facet of empowering women’s leadership within both organizations and the industry lies in fostering mentorship for women. Recognizing the impact of guidance and support in career development and assigning mentors to aspiring women professionals, we aim to cultivate a culture where knowledge-sharing and skill development flourish.

The challenging yet essential task of restructuring governance and communication processes is a continuous process that involves dismantling traditional barriers and hierarchies. Our goal is to ensure that every team member, regardless of gender and background, enjoys an equal opportunity to contribute and be heard.
