Realizing Gender Parity
The Gender Parity Network (GPN) is an employee resource group committed to realizing gender parity across Takeda by fostering the development and advancement of women through a strong, diverse, engaged community.
For GPN and Takeda, International Women’s Day and Women’s History Month is an opportunity to:
- Engage employees of all identities across the company
- Raise awareness about gender equality
- Share our people’s stories and accomplishments
- Highlight everyday actions and opportunities to accelerate gender parity
- Reinforce Takeda’s commitment to create a gender-balanced and inclusive workplace
We are taking action for a brighter future that goes beyond just our internal events. We’re taking our passion for people and transforming it into meaningful action within our local communities.
We are proud to partner with Dress for Success, a global not-for-profit organization that empowers women to achieve economic independence by providing a network of support, professional attire and the development tools to help women thrive in work and in life.
During the month of March, the GPN is hosting a drive to benefit Dress for Success and encouraging our employees to donate brand-new professional attire that supports this impactful organization in providing clothing, confidence, and career boosts to over 75,000 across the globe each year.
We are also participating in the #YourPowerHerHour campaign, an initiative by Dress for Success that provides the career support, community, and confidence women need to get hired and meet their career goals. This incredible work aligns closely with our own values and DE&I philosophy as well as GPN’s mission to support women in getting access to opportunities, programs, services and tools that will help her achieve advancement.
