Eunisell highlights equal-gender workplace environment

As the world marks International Women’s Day, Eunisell Limited, West Africa’s largest company in specialty chemical and oil and gas solutions, has affirmed its commitment to fostering an equal-gender workplace.

The company pledged to sustain an environment that consciously promotes equal opportunities for all employees to enable them to showcase skills and competencies and excel without any discrimination or bias.

Chika Ikenga, Eunisell’s managing director, made the remarks in Lagos, following a session organised by the company to celebrate its female employees in commemoration of the 2022 International Women’s Day.

Ikenga said the theme of this year’s celebration, “Break the Bias” should inspire all to be decisive and collectively identify and break all biases including cultural, social and gender for global development.

“Global development can be significantly enhanced by confronting bias, stereotypes, and discriminations that limit women and their ability to reach their full potentials. The challenges that confront women demand that we should explore opportunities to encourage visibility and empowerment of the female folk.
