IWD: FMN unveils women’s network




As part of its participation in the annual International Women’s Day (IWD), Flour Mills Nigeria Plc has unveiled FMN women’s network tagged ‘Amazing Amazons’ to appreciate female folks in the company’s workforce.
The campaign theme for this year’s celebration held held every March 8, is ‘Balance for Better,’ with focus on forging a more gender-balanced world; raising awareness against bias and taking action for equality.
Speaking at the event, the Group Managing Director of FMN, Mr. Paul Gbadebo, said: “This is the first of its kind and I am impressed that we pulled this through. Women have come a long way, especially in Nigeria and Africa. FMN celebrates Nigerian women every day. A very significant portion of our workforce is women and we hold them highly.
“What we have in Flour Mills is equal opportunity, egalitarian workplace. People are given opportunity no matter their gender to work and pursue their careers and make a success of themselves and add value to the firm.
“We are gender sensitive; that is why we have Salamatu Sulaiman as a non-executive board director at FMN. We have career ladies all over the group.
“Today we have women excelling in places you would have thought will only be for men, like in milling, we have Huzinat, who is technically sound, got awards all over the world as a miller.
“We have Veronica in quality assurance in Golden Sugar that just got a global award for being the best quality assurance person. Our treasurer is a woman and head of legal unit is a lady.
“So we have quite a few of them working in high places within the group. So it’s an environment that we create to promote gender balance, create opportunities to unleash their potential and pursue their career in Flour Mills. I look forward to the time a woman will take over my position as the GMD.”
He advised career women to be focused, flexible, knowledgeable, have passion and need to be upright and exemplary to excel in their careers.
Also speaking, Chairman, FMN, John Coumantaros, said: “The role of women in Nigeria must be celebrated because it is not easy for them to get through work, take care of family and possibly a husband that is even needier than everyone else.
“You are extraordinary women in Nigeria balancing every day. We celebrate your perseverance and strength. We pride ourselves in FMN of good attitude and safe workplace for women. We have seen more women particularly in the mills and this initiative, the Amazing Amazon Network is great to groom the women in FMN, break the glass ceiling and take the world to the future.”
Earlier in her welcome address, Head of Human Resources, Kemi Oyedele-Aro, formerly introduced the women in the group to the new network and the benefits.
Among the women picked to discuss issues affecting women in the workplace were Hansatu Adegbite, Executive Director, Women in Management and Business (Wimbiz); Yewande Sadiku, Executive Secretary/CEO Nigerian Investment Promotion Commission (NIPC); Marie Owoniyi, HR Consultant and Aruleba Arinola, Head of Finance, Sugar Value Chain, FMN.
