Google is a leading global tech company, Its core mission is to organise the world’s information and make it universally accessible and useful. Google believes everyone should have access to the web and are committed to making it happen for everyone and this is why they are a fitting partner to our 2022 Glamour’s Women of The Year (WOTY) event.
Our Game Changer’s edition celebrates women who are constantly changing the narrative and pushing boundaries. It’s also worth noting that the Women of the Year Awards boast an impressive history of recognising change makers, pioneers and trendsetters.
One such woman is Finance Industry Manager and Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Coach at Google, Bridget Ngcobo. The dynamic trailblazer is also up for a WOTY Award in the Next Gen category. In her professional capacity, she highlights issues around gender equality, and is privy to the conversations that happen around women empowerment in the banking sector. Noting that “challenges women face across Africa have been deepened by the pandemic, which has disproportionately impacted them.”
She affirms that advancing gender equality isn’t just the right thing to do. “Research has shown that businesses promoting diversity perform better financially. This can’t be a cosmetic ambition. The change has to be deep rooted in the company’s DNA – from employee to marketing – for it to be meaningful,” she asserts. These values align with the Glamour brand as we strive to drive the conversation forward across industries.
As a company, Google is committed to creating a diverse and inclusive workforce, and has the awards to show for it. It is notable that women at Google have rated Perks, Benefits, Happiness, and Compensation as the highest categories they have scored. The company also ranks in the top 10% of other companies on Comparably with 10 000+ Employees for Gender Score.
