BAT crowned overall best in Africa at 2022 Gender Mainstream Award

British American Tobacco (BAT) has been named the gender mainstreaming champion for Africa at the 10th Accenture Gender Mainstreaming Awards.

During the awarding ceremony held concurrently in Kenya and South Africa on October 6, BAT’s East and Southern Africa unit scooped the top accolade for its efforts in accelerating gender diversity and inclusion in their organisation.

The Company’s East Africa unit with its manufacturing hub in Nairobi’s industrial Area was a category winner for Women Empowerment in the Workplace – East Africa and a 2nd finalist for Mainstreaming Gender and Disability.

Established in 2012, the Gender Mainstreaming Awards aim to encourage private sector buy-in towards achieving more meaningful representation of women in mainstream business.

“We are delighted and honoured to have been named the Africa champion in gender mainstreaming. While it is my belief and that of BAT that driving diversity and inclusion is the right thing to do, this external recognition is a testament that our vision is aligned with that of our stakeholders and society in general,” said Crispin Achola, BAT Kenya Managing Director & General Manager East African Markets
