Almac Group Participates in National Take Our Daughters and Sons to Work Day
A STEM-focused event serving over 150 children at four US facilities
Souderton, U.S., May 4, 2018– Almac Group, the global contract pharmaceutical development and manufacturing organization with North American headquarters in Souderton, PA, participated in the nationally organized Take Our Daughters and Sons to Work Day, coordinating a full event schedule for over one-hundred and fifty children of Almac employees.
Organized into groups according to age, the projects covered the company’s unique service areas, including science demonstrations, clinical packaging relays, tours of supply chain warehouses, and individualized career development. Participants at Almac’s Durham, North Carolina facility had the opportunity to dissect a strawberry’s DNA, guided by diagnostic subject-matter-experts. Each group also contributed to organizing care packages to help our military heroes, aiding the Military Working Dog Team Support Association.
Helene Matthews, US Training Director, commented: “Almac enjoyed hosting this event for our employees’ families, as it fosters a shared educational experience and further provides participants with insights to an exciting and continually evolving industry. We thank everyone for their contributions and helping to make this year’s ‘Agents of Positive Change’ theme a success.”
A national movement led by the Take Our Daughters And Sons To Work Foundation, this year’s event focused on creating a transparent and equitable experience to showcase opportunities that girls and boys can use in their continued career exploration and build upon with future educational achievement.
Arden Pengelly, Parent and HSE Supervisor, commented: “STEM education is important to my children’s future. I’m proud to work for a company like Almac who chooses to invest resources and places considerable value on events like these. Many companies try to live up to their core values; Almac is a company that always does.”
