Sovannaphum Life celebrates female empowerment for Women’s Day

Sovannaphum Life Assurance Plc – a life insurance company with financial strength and trust – is celebrating Cambodian women’s contributions to business and nation-building to mark International Women’s Day on March 8.

Female empowerment and gender equality remain key components of its corporate policy, as Sovannaphum Life goes the extra mile to promote women’s participation in the workplace.

“Women are supremely capable of making concrete and wise decisions, so to build cooperative and productive teams as well as create a win-win culture across a company, promoting women’s involvement in leadership roles should be undertaken.

“At Sovannaphum Life, we support and promote equal opportunities where women can become successful in their careers and reach their fullest potential. As of January this year, our female employees accounted for 66 per cent of our workforce,” said Sovannaphum Life Assurance CEO Loke Kah Meng.

This year’s International Women’s Day’s theme of #BreakTheBias fully fits Sovannaphum Life’s goal of promoting gender diversity in the Kingdom, as more and more women continue breaking cultural and social barriers to excel in business and the corporate sector to gain economic independence.

The influence of Cambodian women can be seen across a range of sectors – from banking, e-commerce and SMEs, to education and farming – where many have taken successful leadership roles to reach a level platform with their male counterparts.

Sovannaphum​ Life has selected five successful women in their respective careers to be featured in The Phnom Penh Post to mark International Women’s Day.

To further celebrate this important day, Sovannaphum Life will be offering special discounts of up to 20 per cent for its most trusted product – SMILE Life Solutions – from March 1-31, 2022.
