International Women’s Day

Gender parity has always been and in many areas still is a major issue in our society. The #internationalwomensday is annually marked on March 8, and aims to celebrate economic, cultural, social and political achievements of women. But why only dedicate one day a year to empower and show appreciation towards women?

We at Fujifilm cherish and empower women every single day and give them and everyone else the chance to develop themselves in positions and areas that spark their interest. So many powerful women are part of the Fujifilm family and tremendously contribute to the company’s success with their meaningful work. To show our appreciation, we invented the Women4Women magazine, launched in October 2020 for the first time. Already 4 editions have been published addressing current and important issues. The latest edition was published at the beginning of the year and covers a highly present and urgent topic, ‘Sustainability’. The ‘Green Issue’ not only talks about changing us and businesses towards a more sustainable future, but is more sustainable than ever before itself. It is printed on recycled paper.

Have a look at the latest, but also the previous editions of the Women4Women magazine. Let yourself be inspired by all the powerful women contributing to Women4Women. We can only say that we are grateful for all these amazing women being part of our family.

Women4Women – The Green Issue

There are more than 7.5 billion people in the world, and human beings have a tendency to separate the animal/natural world from the human world, as if they were two separate things. But in reality, human beings are part of nature, and despite the technological advances that have allowed us to do great things, we are part of this ecosystem. Hence, we must remember to protect and take care of it.

Sustainability is more important than ever before especially, we, as major companies and global players, have to start making changes and rethink our operations. Therefore, the Women4Women magazine goes green. Not only, our newest and already 4th issue of the Fujifilm #Women4Women magazine is all about sustainability in our private and professional lives also the magazine itself is printed on recycled paper.

In the recent issue, women from all around the world share their story about how they got involved in a sustainable work, lifestyle or, why it is so important for them in general. All of these powerful women are already committed to protect the planet and share with us how we can turn our lives “green” with only a few simple daily gestures.

We need to stop being selfish and start to think about the exhausted and drained world and resources we will leave to our future generations. At that point it is no longer about our lives because most dramatic changes will not be visible to most of us and consequently, not affect the older generations.

It is now clearer than ever, that the incredible global sanitary crisis and the acceleration of natural disasters brought us all in front of our responsibilities and made clear that our health is inevitably bound up with the health of the eco-system.

Reduction of waste, renewable energies, waste water handling, less overconsumption and many more factors are important to take into consideration. However, not we as individuals are able to change and safe the planet on our own. Companies and corporations are playing a major role in this process as well. Businesses need to adapt the way they use and reuse resources and have to decrease their environmental footprint drastically.

This magazine aims to support and empower women in the business world, but especially the 4th issue also raises awareness concerning an inevitable issue for everyone. Climate change and sustainability in all areas of life matter to ALL OF US!

What do you need to be a powerful woman?

This is the question we asked ourselves at Fujifilm to get an answer. We have collected inspiring and moving stories from powerful women on the topics Leadership, Work-Life Balance, She-cession, Hobbies, Endometriosis and Charity. The six chapters of the magazine feature contributions from 27 women with different backgrounds across Europe and beyond.

Powerful Women” is the third issue of Fujifilm’s “Women4Women” magazine, a monograph which narratives are a clear example of the inner and outer strength and powerful women- at work and in their private life.  It is the  overarching aim of raising awareness and the recognition of our contributors achievements that make this issue special.   

We are talking about POWER, our POWER.

About the INNER POWER that supports women in their personal endeavors, be it in business or in other fields.

In leadership, it’s not about more men or more women on your board, it’s about the right balance!

With the right balance between men and women, one gets a more mature culture within an organization,” comments Yvonne Van Rooy, Supervisory Board of Directors of FUJIFILM Manufacturing Europe. “Adding a sufficient number of women to teams and leadership increases the chance of different angles being addressed. The organization is better off. That is why I am so motivated, not from a feminist point of view, but because it is better for the quality of the decision-making process. Another very important argument is that young people, men or women, no longer want to work in an one-sided organization of only men or only women. A good learning culture within any company or organization that includes gender neutrality and a diversity of cultures, will make an organization better. That’s why I like the initiative of this magazine so much!

Happy international women’s day!

Have you ever asked yourself where all the women hide who contribute to make the world a better place? 

We have asked ourselves this question recently when thinking about the second issue of our Women4Women magazine. We did not have to search long. It was quite easy to find many interesting and influential women very close to us – in our company. The latest issue of the Women4Women magazine concentrates on women in science. Both external and internal contributors from around the world shared their stories and led us through an emotional and exciting journey. We were pleased to receive contributions from colleagues and university professors, journalists and photographers to provide as many different views and opinions as possible.   

Women4Women is a magazine which highlights women’s strengths and views, the right reading for this important day. 

We would like to share our contributors’ positive and impactful attitudes wishing you a happy women’s day today and every day!
