Bloomage becomes global signatory corporation of U.N.’s ‘Women’s Empowerment Principles’

Bloomage, a Parsippany-based biotechnology company specializing in hyaluronic acid industrialization, said it was recently designated a signatory corporate member of the U.N. Women’s Empowerment Principles to reiterate its commitment in gender equality and empowering women.

The WEPs is a joint initiative launched by the U.N. Global Compact and U.N. Women to empower and promote equality for women in the workplace, economy and communities through a set of frameworks and principles.

To date, over 8,000 companies worldwide have signed the CEO Statement of Support for this initiative.

Bloomage recognizes the importance of women in driving socioeconomic development. The company has been committed to building a diverse, equal and inclusive corporate culture, and actively working to support women’s success in the workplace. After joining WEPs, Bloomage will further deepen its commitment to gender equality and women’s empowerment. The company will develop actionable strategies, including establishing senior leadership mechanisms to ensure employee well-being. Furthermore, Bloomage will enhance its education and training programs to provide female employees with opportunities that best fit their strengths in both their personal and professional lives.

Zhao Yan, chairperson and CEO of Bloomage, said true gender equality should go beyond emphasizing gender. She underscored that, regardless of gender, everyone should show energy and warmth in their roles, contribute to society and receive the same respect in kind. In turn, companies must fulfill their responsibilities in providing a fair, open and inclusive work platform and development opportunities for all employees.
