Software AG Launches “Return to Work” Campaign for Women In India
Software AG (Frankfurt TecDAX: SOW) today announced a new recruitment programme that encourages women computer scientists and software engineers back to the workforce after taking a career break.
Named ‘SoftwareAGain’, this return to work program provides a foundation for women to sharpen their technical knowledge and brush up on soft skills through a comprehensive 16-week paid transition program.
Sanjay Brahmawar, President and Chief Executive Officer, Software AG noted: “IT professionals are in high demand in India given the technological revolution sweeping the country, and yet many women are passed over because they have a gap in their resume. At Software AG, we believe in the incredible experience, diversity, and untapped potential that women bring to the workforce. We also understand the challenges and apprehensions of women who want to return to work after a protracted break. We want to be part of their journey to transform their self-doubts to self-belief, and build a brighter and more fulfilling future together.”
