‘Fair Share’ Conference Engages Male Employees to Drive Diversity
“At PMI, we talk about giving everyone a ‘fair share,’ not just
women. This is a discussion that's vital to everyone—and we recognize
that to empower women, we must engage and empower men to be advocates
for equality,” said
The conference speaks volumes for PMI’s efforts toward gender equality and creating a more inclusive and diverse business. It ties in with the theme of this year’s International Women’s Day, “Balance for Better,” which represents a call to action for driving gender balance across the world. The Fair Share conference and other initiatives will help amplify the work PMI is doing to create a more inclusive and diverse business for employees and consumers.
The Fair Share conference features three of PMI’s female executives as well as the following globally recognized speakers:
To further illustrate its drive for change, PMI is the first business in the world to earn global EQUAL-SALARY certification. The certification—earned via third-party verification—confirms PMI’s commitment to equality and is an important milestone on the road to creating an inclusive, gender-balanced workplace. Inclusion and diversity are at the core of PMI’s business strategy, as key enablers for the company’s transformation from a traditional cigarette manufacturer to a science and technology-minded company with a pipeline of innovative smoke-free products.
Together, these join other new and ongoing activations to represent the important milestones on PMI’s journey toward becoming an organization that better represents its worldwide constituency.
