Pakistan’s leading local FMCG company, English Biscuit Manufacturers (Pvt.) Ltd (EBM), has won the Gender Diversity at Workplace Award 2022 – Local Corporates, in the 19th Annual Excellence Awards Ceremony held by the CFA Society Pakistan. This prestigious accolade is a testament to EBM’s commitment to empower and promote gender diversity at the workplace.
The Annual Excellence Awards recognize the efforts of companies in fostering an environment that empowers women, while inculcating strong leadership qualities in them. EBM stands at the forefront in upholding a gender diverse workplace, with one-third of their senior leadership positions occupied by women.
Dr. Zeelaf Munir, Managing Director & CEO of EBM, expressed her views and said: “EBM has stood strong by its vision of gender diversity. We are proud to be an organization where women hold key decision-making positions. With our continuous efforts we hope to make EBM a torchbearer for gender diversity, motivating other organizations in the country to follow suit.”
Earlier this year, EBM was recognized as an Employer of Choice at the Gender Diversity Awards 2022, organized jointly by International Finance Corporation and Pakistan Business Council as well as the award for Best Place to Work both by the Employers Federation Pakistan and PSHRM & Engage Consulting.
