UN Award for ORF

UN Award
12. March 2015

UN Award for the Advancement of Women given to Austrian National Broadcasting Company - ORF

The internationally highly respected award was handed over to ORF´s director general, Alexander Wrabetz, at the UN HQ in New York.

ORF was awarded the prize for its activities in promoting women within the company as well as ORF’s remarkable equality plan. A broad range of programs and initiatives introduced by ORF are mentioned as highly motivational for the award, among others: management training and mentoring programs for women that aim at the reduction of barriers for female engineering professionals as well as measures such as the “father's month” to promote equal paternity leave.

Each year during a special event for "Women's Empowerment Principles (WEPs)" the UN organizations "UN Women" and "UN Global Compact" award the renowned "WEPS CEO Leadership Awards" for achievements within gender equality issues.
