On the occasion of international women's Day, 8th March, Veolia Ghana joined the world to celebrate it together with our Yes WEDO Network.
WEDO is Veolia's international gender equality network. Its aim is to contribute to the achievement of the company's gender diversity and professional equality goals. This year it took place from 7th to 11th of March.
There are 25 local WEDO networks on five continents with the mission of delivering action plans locally. Each local network is run by committed Veolia employees who, in addition to their usual duties, have a role in coordinating and monitoring the action plans. The company's gender diversity and professional equality policy are based on three main areas: developing job diversity in operations; increasing the number of women in the company's governing bodies and in management; promoting gender diversity in representative bodies, etc.
