Gender program

Encouraging talent to flourish 

At CEVA, we recognize and value the distinct contribution of both women and men to our business. In a traditionally male-dominated industry, we are pleased that 26% of our global workforce is now female, of whom over 18% are senior managers. However, we know there is a long way to go.

Our gender program promotes fair recruitment practices, development opportunities and other support mechanisms that are helping all of our people to flourish.

We have established a Gender Working Group and are engaging the whole company in gender-related issues through a variety of activities including listening events, information sharing, interactive education and local networks, for example:

Recent initiatives

  • Women Internal Network (WIN), including local networks in Australia, Brazil, Canada, Mexico, Singapore, Thailand, UK& Ireland, Italy, Turkey, Romania, Poland and USA
  • Gender E-Community providing company-wide mutual support
  • Listening events led by senior managers
  • Gender awareness campaign to increase awareness and engagement
  • Gender global survey of more than 3,000 employees.
  • Mentoring program for female leaders
  • Leadership training program 

Working in partnership

We are committed to leading our industry in diversity and inclusion. As part of this, we have joined Catalyst (, the leading non-profit membership organization expanding opportunities for women and business.

We also regularly participate in external gender events around the world.
