During the time I graduated from college and got my bachelor’s degree in Applied Statistics, I was extremely worried about looking for a company that would really accept my individuality. A company that would let a member of the LGBT Community freely express herself and be fully accepted as one of them. To confirm, yes, I am a woman – BY HEART. A transgender.
Here in the Philippines, crossdressers like me are still not widely accepted in all workplaces and some transgender people are still forced to dress like a man to keep their jobs.
And here comes Sitel, making a difference as they embrace the people-first culture. And I must attest, they never failed to fulfill this promise. They have fully accepted and gave me equal opportunities to grow. I started as a CSR in 2016. In just a short span of time, from “no one”, I became “THE ONE.” I was promoted as a coach.
Numerous training in people and financial management, skills and personality developments were given. I was truly empowered and honored to help other people achieve greater heights. I was also given a chance to participate in Community give-back activities such as gift-giving to orphans, tree planting, coastal cleaning, to mention a few. I am really blessed to grow in this kind of working environment and more eager to spread the word on how welcoming Sitel is.
A woman by heart. Empowered by the people-first culture. TRULY A WOMAN OF SITEL.
Kudos to Sitel for bringing love to the LGBTQIA Community.
In honor of International Women’s Day, we’re highlighting the bold and powerful women of Sitel, celebrating that we’re all different, but equal. These are their stories of diversity, balance, success, gender equality and about leading the change you want to see.
