International Women's Day 2023
In 2023, twenty two-women solvers were selected by the Ashland Women’s International Network (AWIN) from among hundreds of nominations across the company to win the Inspirational Women Award. These Ashland women solvers are role models, mentors, catalysts for others and have inspired others in their own lives, careers, and behaviors.
The recognition of our InspriationalWomen's Award winners coincides with International Women’s Day and is a vital component of the company’s work to drive gender parity. It also supports Ashland’s Responsible Solvers™ philanthropic program.
In honor of this year’s 22 AWIN recipients, Ashland donated $20,000 dollars to greenlight for girls, an international non-profit dedicated to inspiring girls of all ages and backgrounds to pursue science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) subjects by introducing them to the world of science in fun and exciting ways.
“Ashland is committed to inclusion and diversity and to the global, philanthropic focus of our social agenda on STEM,” said Guillermo Novo, chair and chief executive officer, Ashland. “Through our corporate and regional Responsible Solvers™ programs, we will provide opportunities for more students at all levels to experience STEM careers and expand the number of students pursuing advanced degrees in STEM. Through our work, we also intend to broaden the participation of women and minorities.”
