Making IT Possible for Women

Making IT Posible for Women

It is no secret that the tech industry is male dominated. But surely more can be done to attract women to join the tech industry.

 

REALISING WOMEN’S FULL POTENTIAL

At IBM, we always have leadership development programmes specially designed to help women IBMers create our leadership journey as well as build relationship and influence. These programmes are central to enabling women to take the stage and be the vanguard of our area of expertise.  In addition, our new personalised learning platform, “Your Learning”, allows easy access to hot learning topics, many of which are in the form of e-learning and virtual classroom lessons. The result is women IBMers can upgrade, stay relevant and advance our skills 24/7. 
 

 

PROVIDING SUPPORT BEYOND WORK

Besides career and developmental programmes, there are also specific initiatives that support women employees at the workplace. For example, our medical benefits cover prenatal consultations/medications and support in vitro fertilisation. At the same time, each office locale has nursing room facilities and milk delivery services, which proves to be a boon for our female colleagues in larger geographical areas like the Philippines and US.  In Singapore, we frequently see news and social media emphasising the importance of fair employment practices. In IBM, embracing diversity is fundamental to our values. That is why, all women IBMers have ready access to programmes and materials which help us uncover unconscious bias in the workplace.
