Basel, Switzerland, 27 June 2017 – Fridtjof Helemann, Chief Human Resources Officer (CHRO) for Lonza, has been elected to the Board of Advance Women in Swiss Business. The mission of this non-profit association is to actively increase the share of women in leading positions in Swiss companies on an ongoing basis.

Founded in September 2013 by 10 major multinational firms doing business in Switzerland, the networking group has expanded six-fold in the last years as it strives to support women in the workplace.

"Lonza holds to the belief echoed by Advance Women that gender equality and inclusion are a competitive advantage in business," said Fridtjof Helemann, Lonza's Chief Human Resources Officer. "Membership in this organization will help us to discover new ways of balancing our gender mix and at the same time give us the opportunity to share our own positive experiences with other Swiss companies."
