Happy International Women’s Day! At Pandas, we are proud to have a diverse and inclusive workforce, where skills are valued based on capability, not gender. Today, we want to reflect on the progress made towards empowering women in the tech industry and reaffirm our commitment to creating an environment that is beneficial for all employees and the company itself.
We understand the importance of diversity and equality in the workplace and put a great emphasis on the company’s culture. In fact, research shows that inclusive teams make better business decisions up to 87% of the time.
We actively seek out diverse candidates and provide opportunities for underrepresented groups in the tech industry.
We are thrilled that 50% of our Engineering and Research & Development departments are comprised of women.
But it’s not just about hitting diversity quotas. We prioritize a culture of inclusivity, offering professional development opportunities, flexible work arrangements, and a zero-tolerance policy for discrimination and any form of harassment. Our employees can feel valued and supported, knowing their opinions matter. But don’t just take our word for it. Here is the hands-on experience from some of our employees:
Lamprini Mentza, Product Manager for Hardware, highlights how the working environment at Pandas is promoting a culture of constant progress and development:
Smaro Kastani, Project Manager in Product, is given the space to grow professionally and personally:
For Catherine Karali, Junior Software Engineer, her experience at Pandas is unique. As she points out:
Empowering women in tech is an ongoing process that requires dedication and commitment every single day of the year. We hope that our commitment to equality will inspire other companies to do the same, creating a more equitable tech industry for all.
