WOMEN EMPOWREMENT

Alfa believes in ending gender discrimination in job recruitment. As a telecommunications company, we realize the need for more women to be present in the field of Information and Communications Technology. Even though over 40% of the total employees of Alfa are women (including 15% of the Board of Directors and 29% of management), we still feel the need to include more women in the field. 

As such, you will find the initiatives we have undertaken to encourage women to enter this field and consider it as a potential career path.
