Viya, the premier telecommunications provider in the U.S. Virg in Islands, which is led by Geraldine Pitt — its first female chief executive officer and Caribbean trailblazer — celebrates Women’s History Month.

In honor of International Women’s Day, which will be celebrated on March 8, CEO Pitt shares an inspiring message on the 2024 theme of “Inspire Inclusion” to celebrate the achievements and contributions of women around the world.

Pitt embodies the spirit of resilience, determination and inclusivity. With a profound commitment to diversity and equality, she has shattered glass ceilings and paved the way for women in the tech industry to thrive and excel.

In her message, Pitt said, “As we look forward to celebrating International Women’s Day, let us come together to inspire inclusion, empower one another and break down barriers that prevent women from reaching their full potential.

“Inclusion is not just about representation; it’s about creating a culture where every voice is heard, valued and respected.”

Pitt’s leadership at Viya sets a powerful example for women everywhere to dream big, take risks and embrace opportunities for growth and advancement, particularly in the technology space, which is still male-dominated. By championing inclusivity and diversity, she is driving positive change within the organization and beyond.

Viya is committed to fostering a culture of inclusivity, where all employees are empowered to bring their whole selves to work to contribute to the company’s success. Through initiatives that promote gender equality and diversity, Viya is dedicated to creating a workplace where everyone has equal opportunities to thrive.

Viya continues to lead the V.I. in gender equality in technology and connectivity. As one of the largest employers in the territory, Viya takes pride in the fact that approximately 40% of our workforce is women, and 40% of the key decision-makers on its management team are women, who are actively participating in reshaping the organization to be the most competitive communication solutions provider in the USVI. Viya’s support for gender equality extends to its wide-ranging community support for women’s initiatives from the classroom to the executive board room.

This International Women’s Day, Viya stands in solidarity with women throughout the company, our community and the world, celebrating their achievements, resilience,and unwavering spirit.

As Pitt leads the way toward a more inclusive future, Viya reaffirms its commitment to diversity, equality and empowerment.
