Vodafone theme for Women's Day, #ConnectedSheCan

Armed with a key focus of building a diverse and inclusive work culture, Vodafone India will celebrate International Women’s Day with a week-long series of exciting events lined up for March 6 to 10. 
The theme, #ConnectedSheCan, aims to bring a positive change into the lives of millions of women worldwide by enabling financial inclusion, improving health and wellbeing, and building skills and entrepreneurial abilities in them.
Over the years, Vodafone India has consciously worked to build an inclusive work environment and acknowledge the role that women play within the organization and society at large. It has also focused on increasing the representation of women in its 13,000 plus strong countrywide workforce.
 
Expressing his views on the organization’s future ambitions for women empowerment, Suvamoy Roy, Director – Human Resources, Vodafone India said, “We are an equal opportunity employer. Our diversity journey is built on the foundation of creating an ecosystem that is attractive to women professionals and enables them to succeed at the workplace. We are delighted to host a series of engaging initiatives as part of #ConnectedSheCan to celebrate our women colleagues and their contribution to the workplace during this week.”
Diversity and inclusion have remained at the core of the philosophy at Vodafone. Among the initiatives that make it stand apart, it lists the following:
  • In terms of overall diversity, Vodafone moved from 14 per cent in FY 2013-14 to 22 per cent in FY 2016-17, a significant jump of over 8 per cent in just four years
  •  Under its ‘Discover graduates hires’ program, Vodafone made over 50 per cent women hires vs. 38 per cent in 2013. In 2016, they on-boarded 120 students through this programme. Out of the total, 52 per cent were women hires
  • In terms of gender ratio at their mid to senior level management positions, Vodafone has 135 women on 836 senior management positions, up to 16 per cent against 10 per cent  in 2013.
  • Vodafone India currently operators 40 Angel Stores (women-only stores) across India
  • The telecom company launched Vodafone Inclusivity Network – where all employees can join the forum that focuses on influencing culture inclusivity at the workplace. As many as 95 per cent of people managers at Vodafone have undergone ‘Inclusive Leadership’ workshops focusing on unconscious bias
  •  Under its ‘Pathways to success career’ program, Vodafone uses structured interventions to work with existing women employees to plan and advance their careers
