Stream is proud to announce that it has won the Best Data Center Company at Capacity Media’s first ever Global Women in Telco and Tech Awards. As an inaugural awards ceremony, the event organizers wanted to draw attention to the vital work being done by members of the industry in the area of gender parity.
Earlier in the day, key global players gathered at the corresponding Summit to talk about recruitment initiatives, mentorship programmes, training and development and other ways in which they are encouraging more women to join the global sector. In the evening, they gathered to award each other’s efforts and collectively encourage the wider industry to do more.
“At Stream, we fully embrace the benefits gender diversity can play within the data center industry,” says Mary Morgan, Vice President of Marketing at Stream. “In fact, in the past year, 42% of our new hires have been women. We’re proud of this accomplishment, but it is only a part of our broader efforts to promote gender parity. As we noted in our application, we believe that gender parity is about more than just hiring numbers. It is also about creating a culture that actively encourages our female employees to bring their best ideas to the table in order to help us, as a company, continue to deliver excellent data center products and mission critical services to our customers.”

Here is what the judges said:
“Over the past 12 months, this company has managed to achieve a rate of 42% female hires in its organisation. They have achieved tangible results and a palpable effort to drive change across the company without jeopardising revenues and workflows. They are an example for many other businesses, not only in the data centre space.”
