“On the occasion of International Women’s Day the India office raised a toast to the many women who have made a difference to our business and those who continue to do so today.
Beam Suntory has a long history of women leading from the front. In the face of operational challenges during World War II, Elizabeth Leitch ‘Bessie’ Williamson rose to the occasion and became Laphroaig’s Distillery Manager, remaining the only women to own and run a Scotch whisky distillery in the 20th century. In America, Marjorie ‘Margie’ Samuels was the brains behind the name and the now iconic red dripping wax seal of Maker’s Mark Bourbon. And now, closer home in India, women are leading major product launches such as Oaksmith and are also at the forefront across all functions ranging from Strategy, Finance, Legal, HR and IT.
We re-affirm our commitment to an inclusive workplace where people can bring their whole self to work. We recognize the value that gender diversity brings to us and we encourage each and every member of our team to do the utmost in continuing to make us a proud and equitable workplace.
Let’s “Unleash Our Spirit”!
