We run a campaign to encourage women to change their career path to a technical one. These are cycles of training and program presentations, where you can get acquainted with career development opportunities, familiarize yourself with the technology used and learn about the methodology of work in the IT department.

Well, the CSR wing is created for imparting education in STEM courses to females candidates exclusively. To my surprise, management took the decision for creating and sustaining this new wing for higher education promotion through sole efforts of females employees only and no male participation is subjected there. Also, the wing is running in full pace and of course the management has started some innovative practices which allows women to stick to the business and leads to greater retention. The menstrual leaves for women is one such initiative started last year and there is positive discussion around it so its all about good mouthing from your own people which results in building rapport and long lasting professional collaboration

Yes, we promote and support women in business by running special campaigns of articles , webinars and trainings to strengthen the culture.

Yes - Maine did the right thing. There are too many security risks with free versions of these tools. Not enough copyright or privacy protections of data.31%

No, but.... - You must have good security and privacy policies in place for ChatGPT (and other GenAI apps). My organization has policies and meaningful ways to enforce those policies and procedures for staff.52%

No - Bans simply don't work. Even without policies, this action hurts innovation and sends the wrong message to staff and the world about our organization.13%

I'm not sure. This action by Maine makes me think. Let me get back to you in a few weeks (or months).3%
