SYKES Wins Gold for Achievement in Developing and Promoting Women

Award Type Sustainability
Awarded By Stevie Women in Business
Year Awarded 2018

Now in its second year, SYKES Women in Technology (SWIT) works in conjunction with the company’s overall gender-equity goals to achieve parity in technical accounts by recruiting, developing and retaining talented women. And, perhaps most important, SWIT empowers women to renounce the notion that tech jobs are only for men and encourages them to enroll in the SYKES Tech Academy. Since its inception, SWIT has connected with more than 900 current SYKES employees and granted 300 scholarships. The number of women enrolled in the Tech Academy has tripled from 70 in early 2016 to more than 200.
