Synechron Inc., a leading digital transformation consulting firm focused exclusively on the financial services industry, has partnered with myGwork, the global networking hub and job board for LGBTQ+ professionals and students. Synechron is excited to become a ‘corporate partner’ of the myGwork network and be among the 268 organizational allies that fiercely support the diversity of individuals no matter their unique culture, backgrounds, or lifestyles. As such, Synechron is proud to maintain a dedicated webpage as part of the myGwork website, where interested, skilled professionals can learn more about Synechron’s culture and business specialties, and link directly to the company’s careers page to view current job opportunities.
The purpose of the myGwork platform is to offer the LGBTQ+ community a safe and free space to connect with inclusive employers, mentors, professional events, and offer other membership benefits. But it is far more than just a recruiting platform. The partnership between Synechron and myGwork means that Synechron will be further empowered as a company that already has a strong DEI focus, through an array of trainings around topics such as allyship, inclusivity, unconscious bias, resilience, inclusive language, and more. In addition, Synechron will be involved in LGBTQ+ media publications, monthly campaigns, will be sponsoring a future myGwork event, and will be making available panelists from Synechron who will speak at events.
In announcing this partnership, Mihir Shah, Managing Director, Head of Europe, Middle East, and APAC at Synechron said, “We are honored to be among the corporate supporters of myGwork’s global network of students, professionals and broad community who are seeking to network and explore new challenges and the opportunity to advance their careers with organizations who deeply respect their individuality.” He added, “At the same time, we look forward to learning, growing and interacting with the myGwork community so that we can become an even better corporate citizen.”
May Yang, Global Head of Operations at Synechron and an instrumental leader in the company’s multi-faceted DEI program said, “At Synechron, we continually strive to form partnerships that advance and champion the interests and careers of all skilled individuals, regardless of their sexual orientation, gender expression, and background. We firmly believe that diversity makes us better corporate citizens and supporting DEI initiatives creates better workplaces for all.”
Diversity & Inclusion are fundamental to the Synechron culture, and Synechron is proud to be an equal opportunity workplace and is an affirmative action employer. Our Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) initiative ‘Same Difference’ is committed to fostering an inclusive culture – promoting equality, diversity and an environment that is respectful to all. As a global company, we strongly believe that a diverse workforce helps build stronger, successful businesses. We empower our global workforce by offering flexible workplace arrangements, mentoring, internal mobility, as well as learning and development programs.
What’s more, all employment decisions at Synechron are based on business needs, job requirements and individual qualifications, without regard to the applicant’s gender, gender identity, sexual orientation, race, ethnicity, disabled or veteran status, or any other characteristic protected by law.
