Innophos, which achieved gender parity on its Board of Directors in 2018, was recently named to EWNJ’s biennial “A Seat at the Table Honor Roll” list recognizing the impact the company has made on gender diversity by appointing three or more women to its corporate Board of Directors.

“Diversity and inclusion are an integral part of our culture and our strategy, and we are honored to be recognized for that,” said Dr. Mink. “Our ongoing commitment to create a culture of inclusion throughout the organization – from our Board of Directors to our executive team and across our entire employee base – is key to our success and benefits the Innophos team, our customers and our shareholders.”
