DuPont has been selected as one of the top 50 companies for executive women by the National Association for Female Executives (NAFE) magazine for the third consecutive year. DuPont was recognized for promoting women in positions with profit-and-loss (P&L) responsibility.
“This recognition is the result of the dedication and hard work of the talented women at DuPont and the support they receive from DuPont leadership,” said Maritza J. Poza-Grise, vice president – DuPont Human Resources.
“NAFE applauds DuPont’s proven commitment to women's advancement,” said Betty Spence, president – NAFE. "In addition to having a female CEO namely, Ellen Kullman, DuPont continues to have a strong focus on moving women into positions with profit-and-loss responsibility; the company is leading the way in a male-dominated field.”
To be declared a NAFE recipient, companies must have at least two women on the board and track gender in P&L jobs, something many have not done before.
