Happy International Women's Day 2024, where the theme "Invest in women: Accelerate progress" serves as a powerful call to action for gender equality and empowerment. At PRESS Healthfoods, we stand firmly committed to championing the rights and contributions of women, both within our organisation and beyond.

As we celebrate this significant day, we are reminded of the immense potential and resilience of women across the globe. From breaking barriers in the workplace to leading transformative change in their communities, women continue to drive progress and inspire positive impact in every aspect of society.

So this year, we've been lucky enough to chat with some of the incredible women here at PRESS. We've had some great conversations about their careers, how they stay healthy, and the moments they're most proud of. 

Together, let's keep the momentum going and pledge to support and empower women in every way we can, not just today, but every day.


Q&As:

  1. Moment you've been most proud of?

“Pounding pavements and building PRESS into a multi-million-pound commercial business in just a couple of years. 8 years on and we work with 1000+ retailers and operate in 8+ countries!”  Harriet Aldam - Head of International 

“Seeing women I have managed move on to more senior roles and watch their careers flourish and bloom, and see them accomplish incredible things!” Emilie Quinn - Head of Marketing


  1. What's the best advice you've been given?

“BELIEVE THE POSITIVE FEEDBACK YOU GET – from bosses, clients and colleagues.  Write down all the positive things that are said in your reviews. Too often our minds focus only on the negative feedback and don't even acknowledge the positive feedback!” Emilie Quinn - Head of Marketing


  1. What’s your best advice in maintaining a healthy lifestyle around a busy career?

“I think it seems obvious but it’s actually hard to do. Surrounding yourself with people who celebrate staying active rather than projecting negative energy around it. Try new things and put it in your diary to hold yourself accountable! Meal prep helps too!” Olivia Saville - Junior Commercial Manager 

 

  1. What challenges do you feel women still face in their career? 

“Although it's come a long way, I think women still face challenges when it comes to progression to senior positions. There are a multitude of factors affecting this, unconscious bias, the outdated idea of male and female home responsibilities & having children which means that today only 21% of c-suite roles are occupied by women!” Harriet Aldam - Head of International
