EGT-Gender Equality Seal Program

With the EGT Gender Equality Seal Program, the global gender equality certificate program carried out by the United Nations Development Program for public and private sector organizations, it is aimed to close the differences that may occur between the genders in working life and to establish standards regarding this. The Program envisages the establishment of an internal management system in which companies constantly monitor and improve the equality of opportunity between men and women in their own bodies and business relationships.

Within the scope of the Gender Equality Seal Program, which was launched at Limak Investment for the first time in 2019 in Turkey, the pilot implementation was carried out with the aim of developing and adopting a gender sensitive approach and implementing global standards related to this at the institutional level. The Gender Equality Seal Program was also expanded within the Limak Group of Companies in 2020, taking a leading role in the business world in ensuring gender equality in working life.
