Baar, Switzerland – September 26, 2023 – Medela was named a Finalist in the Achievement in Women-related Corporate Social Responsibility category for its Medela Cares program in the 20th annual Stevie® Awards for Women in Business.

The Stevie Awards for Women in Business honor women executives, entrepreneurs, employees and the companies they run – worldwide.  The Stevie Awards have been hailed as the world’s premier business awards.

Gold, Silver, and Bronze Stevie Award winners will be announced during a gala event at the Marriott Marquis Hotel in New York City on Friday, November 10.  Nominated women executives and entrepreneurs from around the world are expected to attend.  The event will be broadcast on Livestream.

More than 1,500 entries were submitted this year for consideration in more than 100 categories, including Executive of the Year, Entrepreneur of the Year, Company of the Year, Startup of the Year, Women Helping Women, and Women Run Workplace of the Year.  Medela is a Finalist in the Achievement in Women-related Corporate Social Responsibility category.

“It is an incredible honor to be considered for this prestigious recognition,” shared Annette Brüls, CEO of Medela. “Medela Cares is a direct reflection of our mission and the work we’ve done through this program shows the passion of our teams of colleagues across the organization. From employee-driven efforts that supported displaced citizens impacted by war in the Ukraine, to a partnership to benefit NICU families around the world, to addressing the formula shortage that caused a public health crisis across North America, Medela Cares is committed to improving health outcomes around the world.”

Finalists were determined by the average scores of more than 200 business professionals around the world, working on six juries. Their scores will also determine the Gold, Silver, and Bronze Stevie Award placements that will be revealed at the 20th annual awards dinner and presentations in New York.

“In its 20th year, the Stevie Awards for Women in Business received an impressive collection of remarkable nominations,” said Maggie Miller, president of the Stevie Awards.  “We look forward to celebrating our 20 years of recognizing the outstanding achievements of women in the workplace in New York on November 10.”
