Kruger Products has achieved silver-level certification for gender parity from Women in Governance (WiG), recognizing the company’s efforts to develop workplace policies and programs that support career growth and leadership opportunities for women.

Kruger Products will be among 30 recipients from across Canada to receive their certifications at the Women in Governance annual Parity Certification Gala on September 25 in Montreal.

The WiG Parity Certification serves to help increase the representation of women in sectors where they have historically been underrepresented, as well as in senior management positions. It recognizes organizations that have achieved results by articulating a commitment to gender parity in the workplace, integrating it to the ecosystem of the organization and sustaining it over time. Each submission was thoroughly evaluated by Women in Governance, with support from McKinsey & Company, Mercer and Willis Towers Watson.

“We are proud to be recognized for our work to promote and support women at all levels of our organization through a variety of opportunities and services,” says Mina Fior, Kruger Products’ senior vice-president, human resources. “We strive to create an environment that empowers women across our organization to be successful.”

Kruger Products manufactures tissue products for household, industrial and commercial use. The company has approximately 2,500 employees and operates eight FSC-certified plants in North America.
