Today in India, close to 50% of women drop out of work for personal reasons or to start a family, often before they reach mid-career. Those who want to return to the work place after a break may be unsure of where to start, or may feel they may have fallen behind in their time away from work.

At PayPal, we are re-thinking how to provide diverse solutions to real-world challenges. Through the Recharge program, we encourage women technologists who have taken a career break to feel equipped to return to the work force. At the end of the program, the participants may have the opportunity to work with us at PayPal to build next-generation payments.

Increasing the number of women in PayPal’s development teams serves our mission of driving diversity and inclusion, and leads to vital insights and perspectives that better serve the needs of customers worldwide. Our employees are critical to keeping up with today’s dynamic tech environment, and the women at PayPal have the passion, energy and skillsets to be driving forces in both our company and in our local communities.

We want Recharge to ignite a culture change in both PayPal and the tech industry at large, by erasing the stigma that comes from a career break, and by inspiring a thoughtful consideration of a healthy work/life balance.

PayPal has an ongoing commitment to build a strong and diverse organization as well as support and encourage women to pursue technical careers.
