Raiffeisen Bank in Kosova is pleased to announce that it has become a signatory to the Women’s Empowerment Principles (WEPs). Established by UN Women and UN Global Compact, WEPs are a set of principles offering guidance to businesses on how to advance gender equality and women’s empowerment in the workplace, marketplace, and community.
Adhering to these principles showcases the commitment of Raiffeisen in Kosova to advance the role of women in the Bank. In this context, CEO Anita Kovacic described the signing of WEPs as yet another step forward in this regard.
"Women empowerment is at the core of our guiding principles, and we have achieved great success in advancing their role within our Bank. We remain committed to ensuring that our agenda on gender equality is well-implemented on the ground, and we look forward to exchanging and working together with other signatories of the WEPs," Ms. Kovacic said.
Currently, half of the members of the Management Board in our Bank are women, while they also hold about half (48%) of the managing roles. Of around 850 employees in total, 55% of them are women.
