Reduce inequality within and among countries.
What it means to us:
Reduce inequalities by providing everyone with equal access to opportunities, especially vulnerable groups, using our leadership, network, technologies and solutions.
Examples of our contribution:
• 50% of employees and 32% of senior management working at Safaricom are women.
• 57 women have received additional support and mentorship through our Women in Leadership programme, which aims to grow female representation in senior management to 50% parity by 2020.
• More than 324,000 affordable devices, such as the Neon Kicka, sold during the year to help low-income earners access mobile services.
• We increased the number of women-owned businesses from which we purchase from 20 to 39 during the year and our target is to ensure women-owned businesses account for 10% of procurement spend by 2020.
