MG launches 2nd Edition of ‘Drive Her Back’ returnee-ship program
New Delhi, October 15, 2020: Reinforcing its commitment to gender diversity and women empowerment, MG Motor India has now launched the 2nd Edition of the ‘Drive Her Back’ initiative. The returnee-ship program will engage 32 women for one-year internship across marketing, communications, sales, after-sales, and product functions.
Launched in 2019, Drive Her Back is a unique program that enables experienced and qualified women to resume their careers with dignity and pride. The selected women are extended personalized coaching and assigned internal mentors for adapting to the corporate environment. MG also provides all candidates with networking opportunities and professional development.
Speaking on the launch of the second edition of the Drive Her Back initiative, Yeshwinder Patial, Director-HR, MG Motor India, said, “MG Motor India is committed towards community and diversity-based initiatives targeted towards key societal challenges. Amongst MG’s workforce, women are active change-makers and can be seen leading several departments. However, despite featuring one of the highest gender diversity ratios in the automobile industry, it is our continuous endeavor to achieve the perfect 50:50 ratio.”
The carmaker will begin inviting entries for the program on its website (mgmotor.co.in) 14th October onwards.
