Braskem America

In 2015, Braskem America Women’s Initiative (BAWI) committed to support the advancement and enrichment of team members in order to promote a more equitable distribution of women throughout the Braskem America corporate chain. In a survey conducted by BAWI analyzing Braskem’s male/female workforce ratio, it was noted that Braskem America had 81% male and 19% female employees and of the 19% female employees, very few women were in leadership positions within the company. BAWI will support education, training and knowledge enrichment to accelerate the advancement of female team leaders, break down gender barriers and promote gender equity at Braskem America. BAWI is also partnering with Ellevate, a global network of 30,000 women in 82 countries, in order to connect team members with other professional women.
