Our team in Georgia has joined the annual global campaign against gender-based violence. Majorel Georgia signed the Women’s Empowerment Principles (WEP’s) in November 2020. By taking tangible measures against gender-based discrimination, our team is committed to advocate for the elimination of gender-based violence, promoting equal representation of both genders within Majorel communities and beyond.
“At Majorel, we believe that gender-diverse teams perform better than single-gender teams. Having a work environment where gender equality is present leads to overall better organizational performance. Having signed the Women’s Empowerment Principles, we would like to encourage other organizations, our people, and communities across Georgia and beyond to take bold steps, lead by example and uphold the shared values of gender equality and women’s empowerment,” says Alexander Mironenko, Country Manager at Majorel.
The whole world is united for this special cause and today, 3989 companies across the world have already committed to the implementation of the Women Empowerment Principles. We are all working collaboratively to foster business practices that empower women at work. These practices involve equal pay for work of equal value, gender-responsive supply chain practices, and zero tolerance against sexual harassment in the workplace.
Our team in Majorel Georgia, being always at the forefront of promoting women advancement, diversity, and inclusion within the country, will continuously uphold these values and further commit to this great cause.
As part of the 16 days of activism against gender-based violence, our colleagues have been actively raising awareness about gender inequality issues on different social media channels and promoting elimination of gender-based violence both at work and within different communities.
“We are proud of our diverse team culture at Majorel Georgia. Today, 70% of our team in Georgia are woman. 65% of women hold leadership positions in management, while 67% work on middle management positions. Closely adhering to the human rights and non-discrimination principles, we have created a healthy work atmosphere where both gender representatives enjoy equal rewards, resources, and opportunities,” says Thea Romanova, HR Manager at Majorel Georgia.
Since 2014, UN Women Georgia has been supporting private sector companies to implement the Women’s Empowerment Principles, a set of principles offering guidance to businesses on how to empower women at workplace, marketplace, and community.
