the entire organization. Our brand has achieved a
lot thanks to the innovative women who comprise
more than 50% of our staff.

In 2019, AFM launched the Female Leadership
Initiative (FLI). The initiative has two goals: to
support the development and future success of all
female AFM employees and to empower them to
embrace their traditional feminine strengths and
thrive within our company. To facilitate female
professional development, FLI offers:
