TCS, a global courier enterprise, has been rolling out gender diversity initiatives aimed at increasing the participation of women in the workforce in Pakistan. Pakistan has 180 million inhabitants – the 6th largest population of the world where women make up 49% of the population but only 25% of the workforce. TCS has been working on increasing gender parity within its ranks through a series of women’s initiatives like Project Aghaz that provides a focused and customized female induction plan for TCS’s Corporate, Consumer and Operations departments. The company is exponentially growing its Ecommerce solutions services and understands the importance of improving the technological footprint. That is why a key element of Project Aghaz’s 4-prong approach is enabling women to be part of the TCS Ecommerce Platform. Through targeted position profiling, countrywide talent sources and training, Project Aghaz simultaneously empowers women and builds TCS’s ecommerce business capacity.
