A ‘blind recruitment’ strategy, coaching and mentorship programmes to develop female talent, and treating gender equality like any other business initiative are just some of the ways in which organisations are forging gender equality at the workplace.

In this ninth part of our series, we showcase the call-to-action of 10 organisations in ensuring gender equality at the workplace.

Organisations featured include: Commvault, Deloitte Singapore, HSBC Singapore, P&G, Sanofi, Shopee, The Janssen Pharmaceutical Companies of Johnson & Johnson, Visa, World Wide Technology and YSC.

Read on to see how these organisations are helping to #BalanceForBetter.

Ann Marr, Vice President, Global Human Resources at World Wide Technology (WWT)

At WWT, our employees are our greatest asset. To create an environment that empowers employees to perform to their fullest, organisations should focus not only on numbers and KPIs, but invest in programmes that help employees grow and realise their potential.

We launched the Women’s Leadership Forum (WLF) in 2015 as a mentorship programme to empower more women to take leadership positions in the company. The success of WLF was then amplified through a number of subgroups such as Women in IT, Cable or Supply Chain to extend these mentorships organisation-wide.

Through a combination of regular meetings, TED talks and awareness programmes, we are putting women in all levels of the company in better positions for leadership roles when the opportunity arises. It is initiatives like these that help us bridge the gender gap and be regularly recognised as one of the top workplaces for women.
