International Women's Day Congratulations to Vodafone
INTERNATIONAL WOMEN'S DAY CONGRATULATIONS TO VODAFONE
It’s great to hear of another business empowering women with today’s announcement from Vodafone says the New Zealand Women’s Empowerment Principles Committee (NZ WEPs).
“On International Women’s Day, on behalf of NZ WEPs, I’d like to congratulate Vodafone for taking another step in empowering women in their workplace with the launch of their ReConnect programme,” says Chair NZ WEPs, Vicky Mee
“With nearly 50 CEOs in New Zealand having shown their commitment to gender equality in the workplace, it’s great to see some of them putting that in to action.
“We congratulate the fact that one of the WEPS signatories, Vodafone, have seen the very obvious need to empower parents returning to work, which tend to be mostly women.
“Vodafone’s ReConnect programme includes flexibility of return to work hours such as being paid for five days but working four – this is great and carries on their pioneering work supporting women employees.
“Empowering women in the workplace is good for business. Congratulations to Vodafone for recognising this.
“We look forward to sharing further women’s empowerment projects in the coming year,” says Ms Mee.
