Diversity & Inclusion: Venga Sponsors Women in Localization
San Francisco, California, USA, September 22, 2020. Venga Global, a global leader in translation, localization and data transformation services in 150+ languages, is excited to announce 2020-2021 Silver Sponsorship of Women in Localization (W.L.), the leading professional organization for women in the localization industry.
Venga supported W.L. through event sponsorships in previous years and this year is taking the next step of Silver Sponsorship to support diversity and inclusion initiatives.
“Diverse interaction and sharing different perspectives produce creativity and energy. By practicing active inclusion, you can harvest this energy for good. Without diversity, opinions merge, much like a color spectrum of one color – just grey. Only by gathering individuals from a wide range of demographic and philosophical differences can you create a diverse reality. This reality is worth protecting,” said Kåre Lindahl, CEO of Venga.
“We must value individuals and groups free from prejudice and gender equality is a must in the workplace. The work W.L. is doing to strengthen this work and train women new to localization through workshops and webinars is great. We all at Venga applaud and support this organization.”
Women in Localization’s sponsors support the organization’s core mission to promote professional development, mentoring, networking and career advancement.
“Women in Localization is delighted to have Venga Global on board as a strategic sponsor,” said Allison McDougall, Women in Localization Board Member – Sponsorships. “Now, more than ever in Women in Localization’s history, Venga Global’s support is critical as we capitalize on our momentum to promote inclusion, diversity, continuing education and mentorship, and opportunities for women in the globalization industry.”
Venga is looking forward to exploring opportunities to work with W.L. towards the goal of spreading diversity.
