Women in Nutraceuticals (WIN) continues to build support for women across the supply chain. The non-profit formally launched just a few weeks ago, but it already has attracted an overflow of followers recently in the SupplySide West Garden in the Expo Hall.
“It’s been very well-received, it's been phenomenal. People have come out of the woodwork–I've been in this industry 31 years and I have never met some of these people who have been in it just as long. It's really amazing support for the group,” said WIN chairperson Karen Todd.
So far, Todd said WIN has about 100 members, with the group aiming to double that number at the show as well as double up on sponsors.
WIN to assess gender representation
Next, the group is conducting a benchmark study that will offer a point in time assessment of gender representation in the C-suite and top leadership. WIN hopes that the research will allow for future measures of improvement and help the industry make informed decisions.
This research will include the US, Europe, and Asia. Outreach will be conducted in the last months of 2022, with the report presented in early spring of 2023.
