ŠKODA AUTO Volkswagen India Private Limited (SAVWIPL) is celebrating International Women’s Day with the rollout of their unique #LicenseToDrive initiative. The #LicenseToDrive initiative is based on the concept of ‘mobility enabling freedom.’ The initiative is being implemented with a series of communications campaigns, training sessions and on-ground events.
As an organization that is a global leader in mobility solutions, the #LicenseToDrive initiative is a natural fit to mark the International Women’s Day celebrations, to encourage the women employees in the organization, who have not been able to for innumerable reasons, commit time and effort towards learning this vital skill.
The initiative was rolled out in January this year. Within a week of the initiative’s rollout, almost 100 women employees expressed their interest in participating and getting their #LicensetoDrive.
Phase 1 of the program involved obtaining the Learner’s License. SAVWIPL arranged a series of virtual sessions for women employees across locations in February to prepare for the Learner’s License examination. SAVWIPL also facilitated the online assessment for Learner’s License for its women employees participating in this initiative. The Learner’s License will be handed over to the participating women employees at a celebratory event at SAVWIPL to mark International Women’s Day celebrations.
SAVWIPL will be rolling out the driver’s training program on March 8th to commence phase 2 of the #LicenseToDrive initiative. Each woman employee will be undergoing a month-long driver’s training to gain the necessary skills to appear and pass the RTO examination for their Driver’s License.
