The DivHERsity Awards, presented by JobsForHer, is a celebration of gender diversity in the workplace. It’s a one-of-a-kind gender diversity award curated to support and recognize the exceptional work done by companies to accelerate female participation and performance in the Indian workforce. 

We’re proud to stand alongside so many great companies that are working to create meaningful change and positive impact through diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI).  

Moving the world forward through change. 

Our Verizon India team participated in the 2021 DivHERsity Awards to share and discover best practices that support gender equality and diverse workplaces. For the second time in a row, we were recognized as a leader in gender diversity employment practices across various categories.

Other Verizon India DEI programs and initiatives to help V Teamers move their careers forward include the “WINGS-Back to Work” program, which has helped many restart their careers after a break. The program was recognized as a top innovative practice in the Women Returnee Program category.

At Verizon, diversity and inclusion is at the core of our Credo. I believe that diversity is more than just a number. For us, diversity is the art of thinking independently, together. We are driven by our commitment to create an empowering culture and provide growth opportunities for our V Teamers at Verizon India.

Gopinath Pullaihgari, Director and Head, HR, Verizon India

We are so proud of our India V Teamers and are excited about all the great work they continue to do. Congratulations again to the team on this prestigious honor and thank you for everything you do to help move the world forward!
