“Limitless Energy for Equality”
We prioritize an inclusive, egalitarian, fair, human rights-prioritizing, and safe working environment at the core of our business processes. In light of our principles:
As a signatory to the United Nations Women’s Empowerment Principles (UN WEPs), our goal is to be an inclusive workplace. As such, we pursue the equal representation of women at all levels and fields. Within the scope of our commitment to equal representation, we make it a priority to ensure that one out of every two new recruits is a woman.
We aim to increase the rate of women employees in Engineering, R&D, innovation, service design, and information technologies from the current 24 percent to 40 percent by 2026 (2027 olabilir TR websitede control edilmeli – KIM Not).
In support of Koç Holding’s global leadership at the UN Women’s Generation Equality Forum, we aim to reach out to 100,000 female students through the “Women in Technology and Innovation Program,” designed in line with Tüpraş’s commitment.
So far to this end, we have achieved the following:
We revised our training programs and support systems to encompass all work categories to provide colleagues in all positions with equal opportunities. We enabled all colleagues to access the same communication tools.
We reviewed and adjusted our work environments from the perspective of gender equality to render all positions and roles more desirable to female applicants.
We also improved our pre- and post-maternity leave consultancy services, childcare and daycare assistance, women mentoring support, and workplace safety performance. With our motto, “Limitless Energy for Equality,” we issued surveys to all employees and subsequently implemented improvement programs in alignment with their expectations.
In 2022, we published our pioneering Diversity, Equality, and Inclusion (DEI) Policy as the culmination of the hard work undertaken by our DEI Committee.
In 2022, our efforts earned us a place in the Global Equality Index (GEI) conducted by Bloomberg for the second consecutive year.
Acting with sensitivity towards gender equality, we pursue awareness efforts to eliminate all discrimination and prejudice.
