Manufacturer shows support for International Women’s Day 2019

Female and male staff at Stephenson show their support for International Women’s Day.

Leeds-based speciality ingredients manufacturer, Stephenson, is showing its support for International Women’s Day 2019 (Friday 8 March).

Global manufacturing business Stephenson, which specialises in soap production for clients such as The Body Shop, employs 98 people from its production plant in Horsforth. Over a third of the Stephenson workforce is women.

The campaign theme of this year’s International Women’s Day 2019 is #balanceforbetter and the day marks a call to action for accelerating gender parity.

Jamie Bentley, CEO of Stephenson commented: “We are wholeheartedly supporting International Women’s Day, which as a movement aims to recognise the achievements and contributions of women in socially, economically, culturally and politically. The manufacturing sector is traditionally male-dominated but as a progressive, forward-thinking and inclusive business we are focussed on ensuring we have the best possible people performing roles to the best of their abilities helping us to continue to be a successful global business.”
