Manila, Philippines, November 29, 2022
Fresh off their national win in the same category in October, Fujitsu Global Delivery Center Philippines hailed as the UN Women 2022 Asia-Pacific Women Empowerment Principles (WEPs) Awards (1) Regional Champion in the Transparency & Reporting category. The award was conferred virtually by Zoom on November 23, 2022. UN Women is the United Nations Entity for Gender Equality and the Empowerment of Women.
This is the third year that the UN Women Asia-Pacific WEPs Awards was held. Since its inauguration, Fujitsu GDC Philippines has won three times in a row nationally. This is the first time that they have won at a regional level, as well.
Arlene Gregorio, Head of Fujitsu GDC Philippines, received the award on behalf of the GDC. During her speech at the ceremony, she imparted that the GDC’s obligation to act with ethics, transparency, and integrity, underpinned by the Fujitsu Way － Fujitsu’s corporate philosophy.
“It is an honor to receive this award on behalf of our company, Fujitsu Global Delivery Center Philippines. As a Responsible Business, one of our missions is to empower women by incorporating Diversity, Equality, Inclusion and Human Rights (DEI) in our business. Our DE&I programs resulted to the continuing sustained growth of our Center and higher engagement scores. We are at above benchmark levels in our EE scores related to DE&I, with consistent improvement in the last three surveys,” she said.
The Transparency and Reporting category recognizes a company’s commitment to transparency and reporting of gender data that goes beyond minimum requirements and seeks to measure, analyze, and report on performance of their gender policies and practices across the value chain. This category also acknowledges a company’s set targets and accountability frameworks in place that they consistently report. More than merely reporting data, these companies also take steps to improve their performance on gender indicators, such as recruitment and retention, and women in management among others.
Fujitsu GDC Philippines was recognized for their gender-inclusive measures within the company and its implementation of measures in evaluating gender-related workplace policies done on a monthly, quarterly, and annual basis.
The GDC’s various trackers and reporting tools measure gender indicators such as gender-split data, percentage of women in the leadership team, percentage of women who are new hires, number of employees who participate in women-centric employee engagement events, and number of employees who graduated from the Women in Tech classes offered within the company among others.
These initiatives are aligned with Fujitsu Global Delivery’s Global Responsible Business Program’s Diversity, Equity, and Inclusivity Pillar. As a global signatory to the Women’s Empowerment Principles, Fujitsu also uses the UN Sustainable Development Goals framework to focus on initiatives with positive, long-lasting impacts based on local needs.
