Foundever™, a global provider of customer experience (CX) solutions, has proudly announced that one of its key executives has been recognized with the prestigious Executive Ally Award at the Philippine Financial and Inter-industry Pride’s (PFIP) Philippine Bahaghari Awards.
The Philippine Bahaghari Awards, organized by PFIP, serve as a platform to honor outstanding individuals and organizations who exemplify excellence and contribute significantly to fostering an inclusive workplace environment. This annual event also seeks to inspire the broader industry and society to advance the cause of diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI).
“I am deeply honored to receive this award. This recognition is a testament to the collective efforts of our entire team at Foundever in championing the LGBTQIA+ community and amplifying their voices. I firmly believe that a culture of equality not only enriches our workplace but also contributes to the success and innovation of our business,” according to Pamela Donato, Vice President of Human Resources, Marketing and Communications for the Philippines and China, as well as the Sustainability Executive Sponsor at Foundever. She also emerged as a finalist for the coveted Executive Ally Award. This award is dedicated to non-LGBTQIA+ leaders who demonstrate exceptional dedication in championing the LGBTQIA+ community, amplifying their voices, and actively contributing to the creation of a more diverse and inclusive business atmosphere.
Donato’s recognition stems from her tireless efforts to instill a culture of inclusivity and equality within Foundever. Her strategic initiatives and unwavering commitment to establishing an environment where every employee feels valued and heard have been pivotal in shaping Foundever’s reputation as a forward-thinking and socially responsible workplace.
As an active member of PFIP, Foundever has been a trailblazer in industry-wide initiatives aimed at cultivating a more inclusive workplace. Under Donato’s leadership, the company has implemented mandatory diversity and inclusivity training, introduced inclusive health benefits, and adopted progressive dress codes along with gender-neutral restrooms across all its offices.
Foundever has joined forces with LoveYourself Inc., a network of community centers spanning Luzon and Visayas. This partnership not only extends comprehensive services but also provides awareness initiatives, counseling, testing, and treatment for Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV). The company associates now benefit from convenient access to on-site sexually transmitted illnesses (STI)/HIV screening and testing within their office premises.
Pledging to sustain Foundever’s leadership in setting industry standards, Donato expresses her commitment to promoting diversity and inclusivity. She envisions making a lasting impact within the organization and inspiring positive change across the entire CX industry. As Foundever continues its trajectory of excellence, it remains at the forefront of fostering a workplace culture that celebrates diversity and equality for all.
