Niftic signs UN Women’s Empowerment Principles

At Niftic, we’re proud to underscore our commitment to advancing gender equality and women’s empowerment by signing the United Nations Women’s Empowerment Principles (WEPs). Established by UN Women and the UN Global Compact, the WEPs provide invaluable guidance for businesses like ours seeking to drive meaningful change across the workplace, marketplace, and community at large.

Niftic President and Director of Strategy, Remy Lee, underscores the significance of this commitment: “It is through collective action that we transform rhetoric into tangible impact. By embracing the Women’s Empowerment Principles, we pave the way for a paradigm shift where gender equality is no longer an aspiration but a lived reality. At Niftic, we understand the power of collective action and must find ways to magnify the power of our purpose, amplifying our influence to reshape industries and societies.”

From our very foundation, Niftic has stood for doing good—for people and the planet alike, and our core values extend beyond the boundaries of our creative work. We are wholeheartedly committed to fostering a workplace and a design philosophy that champions the experiences and talents of our team, partners, and community.

Niftic has long supported initiatives that are tangible reflections of this commitment, including the promotion of diverse representation in design and engineering, a dedication to education and expanding inclusive and accessible design, and mindful user research and testing to ensure our work and products meet the needs of all users.

Incorporating inclusion and sustainability principles into our work isn’t a one-time effort. It’s a journey of continuous learning and adaptation; in our team culture, and infused in the work we create. As we look to the future, Niftic is committed to expanding our efforts in education, accessibility, and partnerships with organizations dedicated to promoting gender equality in design and technology fields.

“We congratulate Niftic for taking the first step on their WEPs journey. We consider Niftic a key partner in closing gender gaps in the workplace, marketplace and community and in advancing the Sustainable Development Goals.

-PHUMZILE MLAMBO-NGCUKA, UN Women Executive Director
