IWD: Guinness Nigeria Calls For Gender Equality At Workplaces

Guinness Nigeria Plc has advocated for inclusion and gender equality for women in Nigeria, especially at workplaces.

The foremost total beverage alcohol company known for its diverse portfolio of iconic brands spanning spirits, beer, and non-alcoholic beverages, reaffirmed its commitment to fostering an inclusive workplace and society at large.

Under the theme: ‘Inspire Inclusion’, the 2024 International Women’s Day campaign echoes the significance of diversity and empowerment across all sectors.

In a recent statement by the company, it was stated that through its Spirited Women’s Network, Guinness Nigeria Plc spearheads initiatives aimed at uplifting and empowering female employees.

Since its inception in 2018, the programme has provided vital support and mentorship opportunities, nurturing a conducive environment for growth and development.

To date, the Spirited Women’s Network has impacted hundreds of female employees, with a 30% increase in female representation in leadership roles.

Speaking at the International Women’s Day event hosted at the Guinness Nigeria headquarters in Lagos, Managing Director of Guinness Nigeria, Adebayo Alli,  reiterated the company’s dedication to diversity and inclusion.

He highlighted the transformative impact of the Spirited Women’s Network and emphasised the importance of creating an environment where every individual can thrive.

“Our commitment to inclusivity is not just rhetoric; it’s a fundamental aspect of our organisational culture,” remarked Alli.

“From lactation rooms to progressive benefits like paid pregnancy loss leave and fully paid six months’ maternity leave, we strive to support our female workforce at every step of their journey. 

“In addition, we have implemented training programs aimed at enhancing the leadership skills of our female employees, resulting in a 25 per cent increase in women in leadership positions over the past three years,” Alli further said.
