Akamai recently received the honor of being named one of the Top 50 Workplaces for Women in India by Great Place to Work. They evaluated over 850 organizations from across India to select this years' winners. Akamai was chosen due to our inclusive practices and positive feedback from our women employees, with over 70% of the women from Akamai India surveyed rating us favorably.
Both of us have been with Akamai for over a decade, and have seen the long-term commitment this organization has placed on diversity, inclusion, and making Akamai a great place to work for all. This award comes during the 15th anniversary celebration of our Bangalore office, which has grown from an office of 50 to a major center of excellence for Akamai. We're very proud of the strong community that has developed there.
One of our employees told Great Place to Work that "respect and 'we care for you as an individual' are two major aspects that stand out at Akamai." This is something we see in action every day, and we're happy others feel the same level of respect.
Thank you to Great Place to Work for the recognition, and to our employees, leaders, and the Akamai India Women's Forum who have all worked hard to make us deserving of this award.
