APM Terminals Apapa Limited has expressed its commitment to driving a diverse organization with regards to gender, as female employees of the company joined other women across the world to mark the 2018 International Women’s Day.
The International Women’s Day is observed globally to recognize the social, economic, cultural and political achievements of women. The day, which is celebrated every March 8, also marks a call to action for accelerating gender parity.
The 2018 International Women’s Day celebration, which has the theme “Press for Progress”, was celebrated by APM Terminals with female students of the Randle Senior Secondary School, Apapa, where career talks were also presented by female staff of APM Terminals.
Managing director of APM Terminals Apapa, Mr Martin Jacob, while speaking at the event, said the company wants more women to join the organization.
He said: “The workplace is continuously changing; we need both men and women to create a motivating and performance-driven place to work which we believe is essential to our success. We also believe that diversity and inclusion are key levers to strengthen business results in the market we operate in and a necessary action for access to future and wider talent pools.
“Our ultimate goal is to build an organizational culture where everyone; women and men can reach their full potential,” Mr Jacob, who was represented by the Head of Government, Stakeholder Relations and Communications of APM Terminals Apapa, Mr Austin Fischer said.
The Head of Human Resources, APM Terminals Africa, Ms Bunmi Pratt, said the company chose to mark the celebration with the female students to encourage them pursue their desired careers in life.
