gender equality

We see Gender Equality
as a human right.
We know that, for an ecosystem to emerge where women can participate more and more equally to the workforce, transparency, executive commitment, support for women's leadership, an infrastructure that allows diversity and an inclusive mind-set are necessary.
We work to empower women in all areas of life.
Within the framework of our Smart Life 2030 vision, we formed the Gender Equality Working Group with the participation of our colleagues on voluntary basis.
