This realization prompted us to launch our 'Women that Build' program in 2019, aimed at fostering inclusivity and promoting the professional growth of women in our industry. Our program creates boundless opportunities for everyone, irrespective of gender. Within this initiative, we have devised a comprehensive journey to support women and non-binary individuals throughout their life stages: from their school years, through their initial employment, to their continuous personal and professional development. We proudly introduced the 'Women that Build Ambassadors' program this year. This initiative seeks to acknowledge exceptional women at Globant who serve as role models due to their generosity and unwavering commitment. We aim to inspire them to continue their impactful work within and beyond the company.”
