Guinness Nigeria Plc has reportedly been named one of Nigeria’s top five gender-balanced businesses by the International Finance Corporation (IFC).

Making the top five of the IFC’s assessment of the diversity and inclusion gap is a credit to the company’s efforts in Nigeria, according to Musunga.

He continued by saying that the company has been able to develop a sustainable business in its communities because to these efforts and ongoing partnerships with the United Nations.

Musunga further stated that Guinness Nigeria’s position as the only FMCG company on the top five list reinforces the company’s trust in and dedication to a working system in which no one feels left out.

He also emphasized that the organization will continue to strive to improve and surpass its diversity and inclusion benchmarks.
