foodpanda committed to winning through embracing equity

foodpanda has made a commitment to embrace equity in order to cultivate a dynamic atmosphere that yields superior results for both the organization and society.

The company also organised a storytelling session in honor of International Women’s Day (IWD) 2023 at its headquarter in the capital yesterday. As this year’s IWD theme – ‘DigitALL: innovation and technology for gender equality’ – resonated with foodpanda’s efforts in creating an inclusive digital ecosystem for many stakeholders.

The event featured a variety of activities: female colleagues have shared their experiences on how to embrace equity, key strategies on how to win through diversity and their participation in the tech for a more equitable world. They also shared insights on how women can overcome barriers and achieve success in their respective fields.

As part of its commitment, foodpanda also presented certificates of appreciation to 34 of its female riders and 32 pickers in recognition of their exceptional performance and hard work in delivering food and groceries to customers’ doorsteps.

“Embracing equity in Bangladesh requires recognising and addressing systemic biases and inequalities that have marginalised certain groups based on their gender, ethnicity, religion, or socioeconomic status. Collaboration from all sectors of society is necessary to ensure that everyone can live a dignified and fulfilling life,” said Ambareen Reza, Co-Founder and MD of foodpanda.

“I’m committed to promoting equity by providing equal opportunities to all. Our ‘Home Chef’ program is a prime example of this dedication, allowing individuals to earn a living from the comfort of their homes using technology and choose their own work hours. We’ll continue striving to create new initiatives that promote diversity, equity, and inclusion within foodpanda and the broader community, Ambareen said.

“I strongly believe that winning through diversity is not just a catchy phrase, but a proven strategy for success. When we bring together individuals from different backgrounds, experiences, and perspectives, we create a dynamic and innovative team that can achieve great things,” said H M Saif, Head of Human Resources at foodpanda Bangladesh. As a leading food and grocery delivery platform, foodpanda is proud to have women who are making significant contributions to its success,” Saif added.
