Imperial Tobacco’s business in Morocco this month celebrated the contribution made by its female employees with an event to mark International Women’s Day.
About 80 women who work for Société Marocaine des Tabacs (SMT) were invited to attend the event hosted by general manager, Paul Leggat, and his senior managers.
Women currently make up about 12 per cent of SMT’s workforce and 23 per cent of its management roles.
The aim of the event was to encourage more women to seek positions in areas of the business where they are currently under-represented, such as in the commercial and industrial departments, and also to recognise their achievements.
As part of the event, sociologist, Professor Soumaya Naamane Guessous, gave a talk on the evolution of the status of women in Moroccan society.
Meanwhile, Leggat said that he was proud of the work being done by SMT to bring more women into the workplace and to promote gender equality.
