Celebrating Women at Libra Speciality Chemicals for IWD

International Women’s Day 2020

international womens day 2020

On Sunday 8th March 2020, we celebrated International Women’s Day (IWD) in honour of women at Libra Speciality Chemicals. This year we supported the 2020 IWD campaign, ‘an equal world is an enabled world.’ The concept of the IWD campaign is to broaden perceptions, generate equal opportunities and celebrate women’s achievements.

Why do we celebrate International Women’s Day?

The United Nations states that 143 out of 195 countries have equality between genders in their constitutions. Nevertheless, gender discrimination is still imminent through gender-based stereotypes, social norms and practices.

How are we inclusive at Libra Speciality Chemicals?

We are proud to have a diverse and inclusive team at Libra Specialty Chemicals. Currently, 53% of employees within our offices and laboratories are women and we are pleased to have two female Directors on our Board. We actively look for opportunities to develop and promote our staff and recognise their achievements. One example of this is our nomination of Internal Account Co-ordinator, Anna Holroyd for Chemical Northwest’s Young Talent of The Year award. We wish Anna all the best in the run up to the announcement of the winner in the awards ceremony we will be attending on 19th March 2020.

Here at Libra Speciality Chemicals, we also champion #womeninscience and, over the past few years, we have employed many female scientists and placement students who have excelled in their roles and contributed significantly to deliver growth for our company.

We strongly encourage all our people at Libra Speciality Chemicals to play their part in promoting equality and share their stories about female empowerment. #eachforequal #IWD2020 @libraspecialitychemicals
