As a global leader in technology and innovation, Samsung aims to lead by example and advocate for gender equality and the empowerment of all women in the workplace. What’s more, research shows that workplaces that excel in diversity, equity and inclusion (DEI) drive better outcomes for businesses, including better employee engagement talent retention and higher financial achievements.
About 5,000 Samsung worldwide executives and employees worldwide interested in DEI actively participate in Samsung’s 33 employee resource groups (ERGs), which offer everything from networking and mentoring to education.
These groups work hard not only to improve the experience of Samsung employees but also to volunteer and give back to the local community. Among them, these large-scale women’s ERGs operate programs for networking and career development of female executives and employees, striving to strengthen women’s capabilities at work.
During the week of International Women’s Day, overseas regional head offices held meetings with female employees, DEI webinars with external instructors and panel discussions, in addition to offering vacations for female employees, gift delivery events and more.
Samsung continues to work toward creating a space that goes beyond being just a workplace and fosters employees’ growth by letting them unleash their potential. Samsung’s move toward making an organization where employees and the company can grow together is accelerating the steps toward a better future.
