Georgina DeLoza: One of Mexico’s Most Powerful Women
Each year, CNN’s Expansión Magazine names the 100 Most Powerful Women in Mexico. The titles of those on the list range from business women to politicians. This year, Georgina DeLoza, Regional Internal Communications Manager for the Americas based out of Guadalajara, made the list landing at spot #63.
“Achieving gender equality is a hard road, but we are on it, and a lot of people are willing to be a part of it. We just need to show them how we can build a more inclusive future for Jabil, for ourselves and our world,” said Georgina. “I just want both men and women to be aware of how amazing we all are,” said Georgina.
Georgina was recognized by Expansión Magazine for her forward-thinking and progressive work towards achieving gender equality. Specifically, her work on the Women Empowered initiative at Jabil Guadalajara. The program held conferences for working women and created a networking committee that encouraged men to be supportive of gender issues in the workplace.
In 2014, Georgina and her team were recognized at Jabil’s Deliver Best Practices Competition for their work in the Women Empowerment program. The initiative has seen incredible success as shown by the increase in female job application percentages at Jabil Guadalajara. In 2015, the percentage of female applicants jumped from 19 percent in 2014 to 36 percent.
Congratulations Georgina on this recognition..you are a shining example of how hard work and determination can make a difference in the lives of many!
