Kuwait-based Equate Group, a global petrochemical producer, said it is launching ‘Elevate’ programme within the group’s companies around the world and the community at large, as part of taking employee equality and diversity to new heights.
The programme is sponsored by Equate’s chief executive officer and president Dr Ramesh Ramachandran and endorsed by the Equate management team.
Elevate is part of Equate’s continued investment in its human capital as a driver for its sustainability strategy, which aligns with the United Nation’s Sustainable Development Goals (SDG) and the New Kuwait 2035 vision.
The launch was held on International Women’s Day (March 8) and provided all global employees with the opportunity to recognise and celebrate the women in their lives and the women of Equate.
Equate senior executive for corporate communications and government affairs Dr Abeer Al-Omar said: “At our company we are reaffirming out commitment to equality and diversity within our group and will be sharing our learnings with our communities.”
“We aim to achieve our goals by identifying opportunities and encouraging a better understanding to the contribution of a sound diversity policy generates ideas, conversations, and can lead to greater mobility and prosperity in line with the overall business objectives,” he added.
Elevate is another example of a programme supported by the Equate Group that demonstrates its commitment to sustainability, partnering with public and private bodies, including employees, the society and customers in the fields of human development, environment, education, health, as well as public awareness, it stated
