International Women’s Day – A Note from Fran Malecha

International Women’s Day is an annual global celebration of the social, economic, cultural and political achievements of women. While there is much to celebrate in regards to these achievements, there is still significant progress to be made toward achieving gender parity.

Compass Minerals believes this year’s International Women’s Day theme, “Pledge for Parity,” provides an opportunity to step forward and make a conscious commitment to strive for inclusion and parity in the workplace. Everyone can pledge to take a step to help achieve gender parity more quickly. Each of us can be a leader within our own work areas and commit to take action to accelerate gender parity.

I have encouraged all Compass Minerals employees, and now I extend the challenge to our investors and customers, to join me in taking the “Pledge for Parity” and take action to:

  • Help women and girls achieve their ambitions.
  • Challenge conscious and unconscious bias.
  • Call for gender-based leadership.
  • Value everyone’s contributions equally.
  • Create inclusive, flexible cultures.
