Women Inspiration Networks (WIN) started in 2016. WIN is an arena for women in leadership positions at Telenor to meet, interact, seek advice and grow professionally. Its purpose is to strengthen the leadership pipeline in Telenor and prepare more women for top management roles. Based on best practice and inspiration from McKinsey and major employers globally, network activities include addressing dilemmas and challenges for career growth, working actively with role models, developing skills for change and fostering understanding.
“We believe that diversity, in terms of competence, gender and cultural backgrounds, leads to better organisational performance,” says Cecilie Heuch, EVP & Chief People Officer of Telenor Group. “Diversity fosters innovation and enables higher employee engagement. Our long-term goal is to reach 35 per cent women top leaders by 2023. WIN represents a significant step towards reaching this goal, as it will help us develop a strong leadership pipeline,” she says.
