7.ai, the intent-driven customer solutions and contact centre services provider, tied up with UN Women to organize the ‘UNite HER’ Job Fair in Bengaluru, on 9 September. The event was aimed at increasing the representation of women in the workforce by offering them professional career opportunities. It was open to graduates, including those with career gaps, as the ultimate goal was to promote gender diversity in workplaces.
The event was supported by UN Women and UN Women’s Empowerment Principles (WEPs) signatories. A virtual fair will take place on 14 September 14, 2023, where walk-in interviews will also take place.
The ‘UNite HER’ Job Fair aimed to provide jobs to women graduates even while addressing the need to reintegrate women into the workforce, particularly those who were forced to take a gap due to family commitments, personal responsibilities or motherhood. The fair had already received over 3,500 generations before the date f the event.
Nina Nair, senior vice president & HRD head, India & Americas, 7.ai, firmly believes “in the power of diversity and inclusion” and said that the “partnership with UN Women India exemplifies our commitment to these values.” She also stated that the fair “is not just an event; it’s a step towards reshaping the future of work for women.”
Suhela Khan, country programme manager, Women Economic Empowerment (WEE), UN Women India, believes,”The private sector is one of our key allies in strengthening economic opportunities for women. UNite HER Job Fair and mentoring platform demonstrates how UN WEPs signatories can translate their commitment into action. “
