Mo­bilink cel­e­brated In­ter­na­tional Women's Day in com­mem­o­ra­tion of their achieve­ments na­tion­wide, and to pledge sup­port in erad­i­cat­ing the daily strug­gles they face, at work and in the so­ci­ety at large. The theme for the oc­ca­sion, in line with global di­rec­tives, was par­ity for all, and speak­ers for the evening shared their thoughts on ways to ac­cel­er­ate progress in this re­gard.

Mo­bilink has been a staunch be­liever of equal op­por­tu­nity for all its em­ploy­ees. #Pledge­forPar­ity, for this pur­pose, has been cho­sen as the theme for In­ter­na­tional Women's Day 2016. Mo­bilink is one of the first com­pa­nies in Pak­istan mov­ing to­wards pur­pose­ful ac­tion in help­ing women ad­vance equal to their num­bers by re­al­iz­ing the lim­it­less growth po­ten­tial they of­fer to the lo­cal econ­omy.

With com­pe­ti­tion to at­tract and re­tain tal­ent be­ing on an alarm­ing in­crease, Mo­bilink be­lieves that hav­ing a di­verse work­force is the key to fos­ter­ing in­no­va­tion and to meet the chal­lenges of a dy­namic mar­ket­place. Hence the com­pany strives to cre­ate a di­verse and in­clu­sive work­place not lim­ited to gen­der equal­ity.

"At Mo­bilink we are striv­ing to en­sure strength in di­ver­sity by lever­ag­ing the in­sights and ex­pe­ri­ences of both men and women to in­no­vate and to de­liver so­lu­tions for our team and for our cus­tomers," said Jef­frey Hed­berg, Pres­i­dent & CEO - Mo­bilink. "Each Mo­bilinker has a cru­cial role to play in en­abling this strength through di­ver­sity by pro­vid­ing equal op­por­tu­ni­ties for learn­ing and growth both at home and in the work­place."

While quot­ing his fa­vorite line, he fur­ther added, "The great­est good you can give to an­other is not just to share your riches but to re­veal to them the riches in them­selves. Con­grat­u­la­tions to all the women on this spe­cial day!"

As­ghar Jameel, CHRO - Mo­bilink, stated, "As one of the top em­ploy­ers in Pak­istan, we un­der­stand and value the ben­e­fits of hav­ing a di­verse work­force for or­ga­ni­za­tional cul­ture and busi­ness per­for­mance. We proudly fos­ter a work en­vi­ron­ment, where ev­ery­one has the op­por­tu­nity to reach their full po­ten­tial and make the best con­tri­bu­tion. I look for­ward to fur­ther em­bed­ding di­ver­sity and inclusiveness across our work­place."

Aniqa Afzal Sandhu, Se­nior Di­rec­tor MFS - Mo­bilink, dur­ing her speech at the con­fer­ence, stated, "For our na­tion to in­te­grate in a rapidly chang­ing global cul­ture, we have a strong re­spon­si­bil­ity in ed­u­cat­ing the next gen­er­a­tion that in gen­der di­ver­sity there is strength and suc­cess."
