MTN Nigeria Achieves Milestones In Workplace Equality, Others 

One of the leading technology companies, MTN Nigeria, recently announced its achievements in promoting workplace equality and implementing family-friendly policies. 

The company was recognised for its commitment to diversity, equity, and inclusion, as well as its leadership in fostering a supportive environment for working parents.

Being the first technology telecommunications company in Africa to be awarded the Economic Dividends for Gender Equality (EDGE) MOVE certification, MTN Nigeria joins a group of over 250 organisations such as the World Bank Group, International Finance Corporation, Deloitte Switzerland AG, UNICEF, amongst others spanning 57 countries and 27 sectors.

The certification is a globally recognised standard for Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DE&I), which reflects MTN’s commitment to identifying and addressing gender disparities through proactive approaches to bridging gender gaps and its overall dedication to fostering a more inclusive work environment.

Earlier in the month, the techo was also recognised for its exemplary leadership in implementing and driving family-friendly policies within the workplace. 

The company’s commitment to supporting working parents was acknowledged at the NECA Network of Entrepreneurial Women (NNEW) event, held in affiliation with Alive & Thrive.

The event marked the Private Sector Commemoration of World Breastfeeding Week & Advocacy, with the theme ‘Enabling Breastfeeding: Making a Difference for Working Parents’.

MTN’s family-friendly policies, such as the Creche, Hybrid Work Module, Flexible Work Time, 6-month Paid Maternity Leave, Adoption and Surrogacy Support, Miscarriage and paternity Leave, and Nondiscrimination in the recruitment of pregnant female employees, amongst others were highlighted at the event.
