GlobalLogic has launched the Women Influencers Program, designed to encourage and enable women employees interested in exploring cross-functional management positions within the technology firm. As part of the company’s focus on DEI (Diversity, Equity, Inclusion), GlobalLogic is aiming for greater diversity at all levels in the workforce across gender, sexual orientation, color, ethnic origin, age and ability.

The Women Influencers Program is specifically focused to promote greater gender diversity especially among the company’s leadership ranks.  The Program will provide developmental and mentoring opportunities through GlobalLogic’s People Development function and individual business units. 

The Program centers around nine competencies that participants will explore via a set of learning modules, with an entire Program journey expected to last five to six months. Operating in tandem, global cohorts of women based across the globe will join together to share and learn from collective experiences.

The competencies promote the development of “soft” skills – meaning those not directly tied to a formal educational program but rather gained through experience and from peers. These competencies include directness and candor, inspiring and influencing others, effective decision making, professional network development, and the continued development of communication skills. Program participants will also receive training specific to GlobalLogic’s capabilities which are meant to enhance essential corporate knowledge and increase depth of technical competencies.

“Diversity, equity, and inclusion are paramount to GlobalLogic’s success,” said Amy Hanlon-Rodemich, Chief People Officer, GlobalLogic. “We created the Women Influencers Program to elevate emerging women leaders and to prepare them to take on a wider range of roles and responsibilities including expansion into senior leadership roles. This Program will enable more women leaders to take on more strategic positions within the company.”

“Our aim is to correct the imbalance in women holding leadership roles versus men, which is common throughout the technology industry according to global statistics,” said Shivani Khanna, Senior Manager, People Team, GlobalLogic. “We believe that through our Program’s structured guidance and encouragement, we can positively shift that dynamic.”
