Nov 12, Colombo: Positioned as Sri Lanka’s first ever gender equality awards, the WFWP Awards were launched to recognize organizations that encourage and empower women at the workplace, add value to the role of women in the workplace and reiterate Sri Lanka’s commitment to the United Nation’s Sustainable Development Goal 5, which covers gender equality and opportunity.

Commercial Bank’s commitment to the principles of equal opportunity irrespective of gender and other variables in its Human Resources Management processes including recruitment policy, benefits and pay, training and development opportunities, and policies on abuse and harassment, contributed towards winning this award.

The WFWP Top 10 Award was accepted by Commercial Bank Deputy General Manager Human Resource Management Mr Isuru Tillakawardana and Chief Manager HR, Mrs Pushpa Chandrasiri on behalf of the Bank at a ceremony held at Cinnamon Grand where the International Finance Corporation’s (IFC) Programme Manager – Women in Work Sri Lanka Ms Sarah Twigg was the Chief Guest.

In 2019, Commercial Bank entered into a partnership with the IFC to strive for gender parity: establishing women in leadership programs, performing gender awareness training, establishing women networks, and obtaining women employer certification (EDGE) are among the medium-term objectives of this effort.

The Bank’s commitment to women’s empowerment is also evident in its products that support women’s health and wellbeing, career advancement, education, access to finance and financial independence.

Earlier this year, the Bank was presented the award for the ‘Best CSR project on women empowerment by an organization’ at the 10thedition of the ‘Top 50 Professional and Career Women Awards, Sri Lanka & Maldives’ – an event organized by Women in Management (WIM), a leading organization in Sri Lanka dedicated to the success of women, together with IFC and the Government of Australia via Australia Aid.
