PeopleCert is proud to have been recognised for IT Diversity and Inclusion, at the BOUSSIAS awards on 5. July 2022.
Athens, Greece: PeopleCert has been named winner of the Silver Award under the Gender Category of the Diversity & Inclusion Awards 2022 for our #WomenDo: PeopleCert Supporting Women in Tech initiative!
The Awarding Ceremony of the 2 new BOUSSIAS awards for women's empowerment, acceptance of diversity and inclusion in business took place in the presence of the Deputy Minister of Labor and Social Affairs and President of the Evaluation Committee of the Diversity & Inclusion Awards, Mrs Domna Michailidou and the President of the Evaluation Committee of the Women Empowerment Awards, Mrs Giovanna Kambouris.
At PeopleCert, gender equality is not just a target, but a workplace reality. With almost 55% of our workforce being female across the board, from junior to senior management positions, we aim to break the bias every day.
It is a crucial part of PeopleCert’s mission to empower women to fulfil their potential in the tech industry, as women are still underrepresented in this area on a global level.
In this sense, we have initiated the #WomenDo series of actions, such as women’s reskilling-upskilling, recruiting, and mentoring in tech, aiming to inspire more women to embrace technology and to promote diversity in the ICT sector.
To list some of our initiatives, we hosted a free webinar under the subject “Intro to Web Programming for Women” where all participants could get a first taste of what it feels like to work as a developer. Moreover, we arranged a mentoring session “Women in Tech”, focused only on PeopleCert female employees, during which the VP of Business Technology, Fontas Liapakis, shared advice and his view on this topic.
