Noida, India, February 17, 2019 - HCL Technologies (HCL), a leading global technology company, today launched its global “Women Lead” initiative in the Nordic region. HCL’s series of diversity and inclusion programmes are deeply rooted across the entire enterprise and focus on ensuring a unified experience in promoting gender diversity, cultural diversity and inclusivity, empowering employees from more than 150 nationalities across the globe.

The global Women Lead programme is an exclusive 1:1 mentoring program for aspiring corporate women leaders across the world. It has seen three successful chapters in Australia and will launch in other key geographies around the world this year. The first chapter of the Women Lead Nordic initiative took place at the Sheraton Hotel in Stockholm, Sweden with participants from more than 25 leading global companies from across key industry sectors, with the objective of nurturing next-generation women leaders. The need for better gender balance is underlined by many studies globally. A study from Statistics Sweden, shows that close to 70% of the leadership positions in the Swedish private sector is occupied by men.

The programme entails mentoring and coaching sessions, during which mentors and mentees work in collaboration towards meeting their end strategic goals. The programme ends in June 2020 with a grand gala dinner to celebrate key achievements and induction of mentors and mentees into the global alumni group of Women Lead participants.

The significance of diversity for HCL business & growth is evident from the high focus and attention this derives from its leaders and employees alike. HCL believes that diversity and inclusion is a driving force for competitive businesses, now and into the foreseeable future. By encouraging and supporting competent women in their leadership careers through initiatives like Women Lead, HCL takes an active role in this development.
