Many big corporations are coming together to promote equality and diversity as part of a wider social movement that is gaining momentum in Thailand.
Mercedes-Benz is a case in point. The company is taking the initiative to promote women’s empowerment by launching “She’s Mercedes”, a global campaign that provides women with a platform to showcase their talents and inspire others.
“She’s Mercedes” got off to a great start recently with the first in a series of talks titled “From Great to the Best”. The event brought together women at the top of the corporate ladder to share their wonderful life stories.
On hand as speakers were Chortip Songwatana Vudhibhong, founder of Bibury Coln; Maneerut Anulomsombut, CEO of Garena Online Thailand; Rarin Thongma, founder of O&B; and Panida Iemsirinopakul, founding editor of Yayee Publishing House.
If you missed the talk, don’t fret. These high-flying career women will still be around to facilitate forthcoming seminars, workshops and other activities in the last two quarters under themes pertaining to women’s empowerment.
“This global platform aims to build a network of female industry leaders by providing them with opportunities to share their inspirational stories. These activities will enable us to be recognized as a premium automotive brand that is deeply associated with women,” commented Michael Grewe, president and CEO of Mercedes-Benz Thailand.
