Ericsson aims to embrace gender diversity by reflecting 30% female inclusion across its entire workforce by 2020.
The main aim was to demonstrate that within ICT there is no single leading role or function where the best-performing employees are evaluated based on gender, it is always the best person for the job that prospers, according to the company.
Rafiah Ibrahim, president, Ericsson region Middle East and East Africa, said: “Ericsson believes in diversity across all aspects of our organization. By promoting gender inclusion in ICT we are, not only, improving our business trajectory, but also fostering a positive corporate environment to all our employees. We want to show young women that ICT is a skill-based industry suited to the most skilled employees, in which women can have very prosperous careers.”
