Description of the action

The welcome day event is held within Encevo Group every 4 months to welcome our new hires who joined recently. On the last welcome day, we started our 1st WoMen Editions, 2022. Main activities are as follows:

  • 5 female employees from different departments were invited to present the projects or activities of the company to the new hires.
  • It provided an opportunity for employees to share their perspectives on the topic Diversity &inclusion (D&I).
  • We created a video with a brief introduction to this initiative and perceptions from our female employees about the topic D&I, which was shared to all employees on our intranet.

Context
