Avanade is proud be among leading organisations who are taking a stand for gender equity, both in and outside the workplace.
At a corporate and local level, we strive each day to reaffirm our commitment to developing the careers of women in technology. Through our Women’s ERG, leadership development programs like Avanade Leadership Program for Women (ALPW), and events such as International Women’s Day commemorations (more than 70 events globally each year!), we seek to develop and promote women within Avanade to help them grow their careers. At the same time, we’re working to create and support a pipeline of female students and young professionals who are pursuing STEM careers. We facilitate conversations at conferences and in organisations on the topic of diversity, women in STEM, how emerging technology and human ingenuity can change things for the better, among other priority I&D topics.
Avanade’s STEM scholars program provides scholarships to women students in STEM programs. Each year we identify universities to work with to identify women who are eligible to receive an Avanade scholarship. In additional to a scholarship, Avanade provides mentoring, a support network and ultimately an alumni network for these young women as their education and careers grow.
