INFOSYS – GLOBALNXT UNIVERSITY GLOBAL LEADERSHIP PROGRAM FOR WOMEN
“Our partnership with GlobalNxt University for a customised Leadership Program for women executives at Infosys has been successfully launched. Diversity & Inclusion is at the heart of what we do at Infosys. This unique program designed to equip women employees with problem solving skills, fundamentals in business management and most importantly, the mindset to lead was in accordance with our philosophy of continuous learning opportunities. We were happy to note that they met this objective by ensuring that leading women professors from varied background delivered it. The flexible learning model considered work pressures and personal commitments of our women employees and tailored it in accordance.”
– Mr Richard Lobo, AVP & Head, Employee Relations, Infosys Limited
With US$7.4bn in annual revenues and over 155,000 employees, Infosys is a leader in people development and has one of the largest corporate universities in the world. It is one of the first few organisations in the country with a dedicated diversity team that works towards improving workplace growth opportunities for women.
A large number of engineers at Infosys approach management roles each year, and Infosys wanted a program that would better prepare their best women employees for new challenges at work. They had women engineers distributed across the globe, and wanted a program that could bring them on a common platform and train them in a single cohort.
The GlobalNxt program builds knowledge, skills and business acumen and prepares employees for leadership roles.
