This recognition reflects Evermos’ commitment to empowering women, through its programs that support their economic independence, especially for women who live in areas with minimal employment opportunities, by providing employment opportunities, encouraging them to become business owners, and providing free access to entrepreneurship training.

Andika Dwi Saputra, Head of ESG & Sustainability at Evermos, presents about the company’s women empowerment initiatives during The Global CSR & ESG Awards Summit.

The Global CSR & ESG Summit and Awards 2024™ is recognized as Asia’s leading awards highlighting Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) and Environmental, Social, and Governance (ESG) practices. This event gives appreciation to companies that show dedication in implementing ethical values and making positive contributions to society and the environment.

"Women’s empowerment is an integral part of Evermos. More than 70% of our resellers are women, and some of them live in rural areas. Through Evermos, these women have easier access to job opportunities, entrepreneurship training, and become business owners with affordable capital."

"At Evermos, we believe in the power of diversity and inclusion. Therefore, we are dedicated to creating an environment where women can thrive and make meaningful contributions," explained Andika Dwi Saputra, Head of ESG & Sustainability at Evermos. "This is realized through a number of programs implemented by Evermos, both for resellers, SME entrepreneurs, and women employees, such as providing working capital specialized for women SME entrepreneurs, free training programs for women resellers, as well as company policies towards women employees through office facilities and granting menstrual or maternity leave with enough time to accommodate their needs."

Evermos’ commitment to women’s empowerment not only shows the company’s dedication to promoting gender equality and inclusivity, but also contributes to sustainable development goals. This award also underlines the work that Evermos still needs to do to empower more women, so they can have an impact on Indonesia’s economic progress.
