BCGE is delighted to announce that CANAL+ Myanmar has obtained the regional level of GEARS Assessment – for workplace gender equality. That makes it the first organisation in the media and broadcasting industry to show a commitment to equity and inclusivity as an industry leader commitment.
“Achieving gender equality requires the commitment of both women and men. It is everyone’s responsibility. But gender equality is more than a goal in itself. It is a prerequisite for building a successful organisation that also promotes inclusion and diversity,” said Adrien Bourreau, Chief Executive Officer of CANAL+ Myanmar Limited.
He is convinced that gender equality and female leadership are major assets in achieving our ambition of becoming the leader in Pay-TV in Myanmar and overcoming the many challenges they face.
“We joined BCGE to ensure that we were on the right track to strengthen professional equity between women and men. We are proud to have received a regional GEARS confirming this and look forward to our partnership with BCGE in the months to come.”
Since joining BCGE as a Leader Member in June 2021, CANAL+ Myanmar has demonstrated the will to better its workplaces by empowering its employees.
This GEARS assessment helps to understand the current status of the organisation’s workplace gender equality journey in which gender balance and employee movements are revealed and provides insights that will inform the development of the organisation’s overarching workplace gender equality strategy. GEARS assessment is one of the membership benefits for BCGE’s Leader-tier members.
