Re-energizing a Woman’s Career
With the aim to embrace gender diversity in Shell Business Operations Chennai, we created a program, Project Re-energize, to support women who have been on a career break, due to various reasons, and who aim to start a remarkable career with Shell.
“India’s unique fabric of cultural and familial values may sometimes put our women in positions where it becomes more difficult for them to continue or join back work - especially after breaks arising out of life changing events. We want to be an organization that understands these challenges, values our women workforces’ personal commitments and allows them to contribute & grow alongside Shell.
Through Project ‘Re-Energize’, the intent is to give each successful female applicant the opportunity to custom define her career path, supported by elements of training and mentorship to help her better deliver in her role. Thus, instead of a ‘family OR work’ conversation, it becomes a ‘family AND work’ choice. I feel strongly for such initiatives and am personally committed to providing a caring, nurturing and empowering work-environment to Shell India’s women employees."
"At Shell Business Operations, Chennai, we commit ourselves to a high degree of CARE-Care for one's self and for each other! It is remaining true to this duty that strengthens our inclusive culture and that contributes to Shell in truly being a great place to work. We continue to take on initiatives to create a good balance of diversity in the workplace.
Project Re-energize, a campaign led by our recruitment team, helps to increase gender diversity in the workplace by attracting women who have been on a career break due to a variety of personal reasons which includes marriage, getting a higher degree of education, taking a sabbatical, and the like. I have always seen huge potential in women who strive to create a good balance of managing their personal commitments and their professional careers. I respect the hard work they go through and I am with them in achieving their goal to succeed in both."
