Manila, Philippines, February 14, 2024 — FedEx Express, a subsidiary of FedEx Corp. (NYSE:FDX) and one of the world’s largest express transportation companies, announced its collaboration with Zonta Club of Makati and Environs (Zonta) for the second consecutive year to empower women in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) as part of the FedEx Cares program.

FedEx donated over PHP1.9 million to Zonta’s Empowering Women Scholarship Program (EWSP), which supports marginalized women enrolled in engineering and science courses. The FedEx grant will benefit engineering students from the Polytechnic University of the Philippines for the three-year educational program. The financial support covers expenses for transportation, food, school supplies, research materials for thesis projects, and graduation fees.

As part of FedEx commitment to Diversity, Equity and Inclusion and to furthering gender equality, FedEx is holding a virtual career fair on February 26 to help the students prepare for their first job. They will be given the opportunity to craft a professional resume and gain experience in a mock job interview conducted by FedEx human resources specialists.

This is part of FedEx ongoing efforts to develop the next generation of leaders. The EWSP is one of many initiatives FedEx supports to address the social and economic needs of local communities.
