We are tech-agnostic and flexible, with an emphasis on exceptional IT security throughout our delivery, performance and support.

Why are you supporting the awards?

Womenspire 2021 is an event which recognises women who have achieved, excelled, and inspired – ultimately improving and changing the lives of women in industry for the better. SysGroup wanted to be a key part of this movement and given the theme is so closely aligned to our own business beliefs then we took the opportunity to sponsor the event the second the opportunity was presented to us.

Why does gender equality matter to you?

As an equal opportunities employer SysGroup recognises that there are not enough women within the IT Sector. We are striving to address the balance and as of today over 40% of our employees are women, including 50% of the Senior Leadership Team. We are also involved with ‘Liverpool Girl Geeks’, an organisation who support untapped female talent through offering inspiration, connections and opportunities; delivering a great range of programmes to inspire the future generations of innovators. Where we see an opportunity to harness the power of diversity we will go out of our way to get involved, hence the association with Chwarae Teg and Womenspire 2021.

Why do you support the work of Chwarae Teg?

Chwarae Teg are leaders across Wales in pushing the messages of inclusion and diversity for all, driving the adoption of a fairer representation of women into the economy. At SysGroup this message resonates with our own values, and we fully endorse the great work being done at Chwarae Teg. SysGroup and Chwarae Teg have had a business relationship for many years, and with a SysGroup office based in Newport, South Wales, we look forward to supporting Chwarae Teg’s work into the future.
