A woman, even at the youngest age;  believes in herself and her abilities, has the desire to lead, inspire, to better the world and the people around her. Throughout her life; two elements will affect her ability to lead: connections-network and confidence based on knowledge, experience and visionary power. Helping women to develop and sustain confidence will be key to nurturing them as leaders. At Atlas Copco, we believe that women’s empowerment is a critical pillar of sustainable global development and we need to be innovative in developing programs and activities that provide opportunities for growth and advancement.

“Our focus on the advancement of women is a never ending journey. What we have been doing so far in Turkey has been pleasing and motivating however, we need to ensure we stay the course.” says Ronny Onkelinx, VP Holding.

On May 13, Atlas Copco Turkey hosted another fantastic Pleiades meeting with Mert Yalçın, Lawyer&Co-founder YTT Law Office. The meeting mainly covered the topics like “ What does a woman stand for in business life/social life? Legal rights of women”

“We invest in programs and activities that focus on ensuring women have the confidence, skills and exposure they need to be considered for leadership roles in a masculine environment. Training and development opportunities we provide to our women employees are in our companies’ standard curriculum—women attend general leadership/mentorship programs along with their male colleagues. The additional networking, info sharing activities such as the one with YTT Law Office are in addition to the standard cirriculum, we call it; a manifestation of our commitment to women empowerment.” says Ronny Onkelinx, VP Holding,  “During the meeting, Mert, with his interactive style and easy to understand wording, performed very well and provided legal information with examples from daily life and he really took us one step forward!”

“Being in contact with many companies due to my profession, I can definitely say that; businesses will eventually see benefits of investing in women’s empowerment.  Increasing the number of women across the organization, and investing in training and networking opportunities for women, a company can achieve highest productivity.” Says Mert Yalçın “There are many women who have taken companies, academic institutions and other organizations to new heights. They have shown other women the possibilities and the power they hold in their own hands. As for me, the million dollar question is, “how can we empower more women to follow in their footsteps?”, for sure I feel proud when  being a part of a company’s efforts on women development and empowerment. During the meeting, seeing that each of them had the answers to their questions and had fun as well, is what makes this event much more valuable and meaningful to me!”
