Therefore, we equally treat women in recruitment and promotion; we offer ease for our female employees, having the pleasure of becoming mothers, in those periods and we also encourage the women to take more roles in management and to contribute with their new points of view. We make effort for creating equal opportunities rather than offering difficulties.”

Turk Tuborg wins first place in "Board of Directors reinforced with Women" Awards, again

Rewarded successively for 3 years, Turk Tuborg has been granted the grand award for the last two years, after winning the second place in the year 2013.
 

Thanks to the female members of its Board of Directors, Turk Tuborg has won one more prize. In consequence of its research, the Independent Female Directors Project carried out by Sabancı University Corporate Management Forum with strategic support of Egon Zehnder International Turkey office has selected Turk Tuborg as Turkey's top company that has a Board of Directors reinforced with Women. 

Damla Birol, CEO of Turk Tuborg, who has received the award during the ceremony held in Zorlu PSM, said: “‘Minority that is not in the minority’ is my definition for the situation of women who constitute almost half of the population in participation in the workforce and rising in their careers, and believe that we can change this. Three groups that can start this change for participation of women in the workforce and their promotion to senior positions have important parts to play. First of all, the men who will make the decision in relation to employment and promotion of women must be unbiased. And we, the women who occupy top positions currently, must spend a considerable part of our time to mentor and support the other women so that they can rise as well, that is, we must send that elevator which has lifted us up back so that they can rise as well. Finally, the women who are at the beginning or middle of their careers today must keep working fearlessly and determinedly disregarding any biases and keep pushing the call button of that elevator which will lift them up.”
