Vodafone released an International advert empowering women to return back to the workforce by their “Reconnect” Initiative. Vodafone understands the struggle and challenges women face when returning to the workforce after a long leave.
They help each year a large number of women to reconnect, to follow their passion and resume their careers.
As Nihal Zaki said: “There is a time in every woman’s life when people keep telling her, your priority should be your family and home. It’s okay, but when you work, you’ll always find a way to balance and achieve your goals and you will find yourself through your work.”
Which is what this program is all about. Giving these women another chance to find themselves and enhancing their lives by pursuing their dreams and following their passion.
