Reading time ( words)

In honor of International Women’s Day, Scanfil’s Women Appreciation Team (SWAT) initiated support for children affected by the earthquake in Turkey and Syria. The team is driving positive change at Scanfil and beyond, empowering women and advocating for inclusivity. Through their dedication and hard work, the SWAT team is leading the way towards a brighter, more equitable future for all.

The Scanfil Women Appreciation Team (SWAT) is a group of Scanfil employees who have a mission to enhance equality and diversity at Scanfil through women empowerment. The community unites women from all Scanfil locations into a valuable network driving Women Empowerment Principles from UN Global Compact.

“The group was founded in 2022, after Scanfil became the Signatory of Women Empowerment Principles as defined by UN Global Compact. The SWAT Team meets monthly to discuss how to enhance gender equality and inclusivity at Scanfil”, tells Malgorzata Klimkowska, Global Human Resources Director and the chairperson of SWAT, and continues “I am proud to tell that we have initiated many great and successful activities in 2022, and I am excited to continue the work in 2023”.

Based on a SWAT Team’s proposal, Scanfil has decided to donate money to UNICEF to celebrate The International Women’s Day

In addition to internal initiatives, the team is also driving charity initiatives. To celebrate the International Women’s Day and based on SWAT’s proposal, Scanfil has decided to donate money to UNICEF for the humanitarian aid supporting women and children affected by the earthquake in Turkey and Syria.

We decided to donate funds to UNICEF and support their actions:

  • To ensure that the affected children and families have access to safe drinking water and sanitation services – critical in preventing illness in the early days of a crisis,
  • To identify separated and unaccompanied children and work to reunite them with their families, as well as provide children with psychological first aid,
  • And coordinating the nutrition responses, especially for young children under 2 years and pregnant women of the displaced population in Syria. They are mobilizing essential nutrition supplies from across the region and delivering essential health and nutrition services through mobile teams.

We are proud to have such a talented and motivated group of people to driving equality initiatives and supporting organizations such as UNICEF that make the difference.
