International Women’s Day Celebrations – during International Women’s Day in March, the global theme was “Think equal, build smart, innovate for change” focused on innovative ways in which we can advance gender equality and the empowerment of women, particularly in the areas of advancement and development.
The Celebration was kicked off across the Infosys Americas Geo beginning with a live webinar for all employees conducted by Colleen Vossler, Executive Director Ernst & Young. Colleen spoke on unconscious bias in the workplace and provided tools to help employees and leaders understand its effect on employees’ performance.
Each Region, including Latin America, held events in their locations. The events were all unique in style representing our clients, government stakeholders, our leaders and employees. There were distinguished panel discussions fun events, awards ceremonies, cake, flowers and more.
Infosys is paving the way to forge relationships with external women organizations, drive development and promotion opportunities for women and recognize outstanding women who have had a huge impact in the areas of technology through our Women in Tech (WIT) mentoring and recognition programs.
Infosys continues to participate in the #SitWithMe initiative. Employees are sharing their story on how they are sitting in for women in Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM). Men and women demonstrate their commitment to ensuring more girls and women get involved in STEM by endorsing the red chair and sending a message that girls can code and be scientists, engineers, mathematicians and whatever they desire to be.
