International Women's Day is a time to celebrate the achievements of women around the world, and at Puratos, we are happy to have many female leaders who are making a significant impact in their fields. With two women in our Group Executive Committee - Chief People Officer Sophie Streydio and Chief Marketing and Channels Officer Sophie Blum - we are proud to have leaders who are passionate about promoting gender equity in the workplace.
At Puratos, we believe that diversity and inclusion are central to our purpose - to move the planet forward by creating innovative food solutions for the health & well-being of people everywhere. We know that by bringing together diverse perspectives, experiences, and ideas, we can better serve our customers and make a positive impact on the world. We have a workforce that is made up of people from a wide range of backgrounds and experiences, and we know that our female leaders play a vital role in this.
Sophie Streydio, our Chief People Officer, is committed to creating an inclusive culture where everyone feels valued and supported:
"Diversity is not only a moral imperative, but also a business imperative. We know that when we have diverse teams, we make better decisions, we innovate faster, and we create a better workplace for everyone."
45%% of our management and middle management team are women and we don’t pause here. We are dedicated to making ongoing improvements, as we believe that representation is important.
Gender Distribution Management and Middle Management Level
Sophie Blum, our Chief Marketing and Channels Officer, is passionate about promoting diversity in leadership positions, both within Puratos and in the wider industry. Her vision is to drive inclusion in the food sector and ensure everyone can participate in the unprecedented transformation of the industry:
"I believe that when we have more diversity in leadership positions, we can help create a more inclusive, equitable and sustainable world for the next generations. I'm proud to be part of a company that is committed to promoting diversity and inclusion across the world."
At Puratos, we know that creating a diverse and inclusive workplace is not only the right thing to do, but also the smart thing to do. By harnessing the power of diversity, we can drive innovation, growth, and positive change for our customers, our employees, and our planet.
As part of our commitment to diversity and inclusion, we embrace the concept of Puratos Magic - the idea that we can achieve great things by working together, with a shared purpose and a strong culture of collaboration. We know that when we bring together people from different backgrounds, cultures, and perspectives, we can create something truly magical.
As we celebrate International Women's Day, we recognize the incredible contributions of our female leaders. We know that they are helping to drive positive change at Puratos and beyond. We are committed to continuing to promote gender equity in all aspects of our business while taking action and making meaningful progress.
