Jazz concluded its month-long celebration of women with a ‘Power to be You’ event held at Jazz digital headquarters, Islamabad.

Jazz announced key initiatives to be undertaken that aim at empowering women in the workplace and the greater community. These include enhanced maternity and paternity leaves, hybrid schedules, and counseling support for new parents. Apart from announcing dedicated offsite learning retreats for women, an MoU was signed with Chughtai Labs for the provision of the Pink Card which offers Jazz employees and their families a 50% discount on women-related medical tests.

Through various initiatives, Jazz is assisting with the safe transition of women to the digital world, and as part of the GSMA’s Connected Women Commitment Initiative, Jazz has committed to increasing the proportion of women in its mobile internet customer base by 8 percent by 2023 with a dedicated focus on female smartphone ownership.
