Supporting colleagues affected by domestic abuse

In 2019, a new initiative was introduced at Vodafone to support colleagues affected by domestic violence and abuse. Vodafone has built credibility already in this space helping thousands of people via Vodafone Foundation’s TecSOS, Easy Rescue app in Turkey and the UK’s Bright Sky app. Inspired by the work of the Foundation, Serpil’s team has launched a new global HR policy and specialist manager training to support employees affected by domestic abuse.

Externally, Serpil mentors numerous senior women and served as a selected mentor for the Women on Board Association (WBAT Turkey). She is also mentoring female undergraduates studying in rural parts of Turkey as part of the A New Leader Association initiative.
