Weleda UK managing director Jayn Sterland has been voted one of 100 inspirational female leaders in the CEO Today Business Women of the Year Awards 2023.
The awards recognize and celebrate the accomplishments of women leaders who have demonstrated extraordinary leadership in their respective fields, significantly impacting the business world through shaping their industries and breaking down barriers.
“This year, more than ever, we’ve seen an incredible display of resilience, innovation and leadership in the face of unprecedented challenges,” says CEO Today. “The women we honour today are not just leading their respective organizations to new heights but are also trailblazers for equality, diversity, and inclusion, setting the state for future generations.”
I feel incredibly humbled to win this award, in such a competitive and talented field
Sterland comments: “I feel incredibly humbled to win this award, in such a competitive and talented field. Working closely alongside me is a team of incredible capability who inspire me daily, as well as our long history of women leaders at Weleda which began with our pioneering founder Dr Ita Wegman a century ago.”
Last year, Sterland was honoured with an Outstanding Achievement Award at the natural and organic products industry show NOPEX, given in recognition of her tireless efforts to drive change in the organic beauty sector for a more planet-positive future.
