The Embassy of Sweden, Bangkok has proudly introduced the first of its HeForShe Ambassadors – Mr. Prom Sirisant.
Mr. Prom is Senior Vice President of Strategy at Asia Plus Group Holdings PCL. Before joining Asia Plus, he spent seven years with Tetra Pak, the world’s largest packaging company which has a Swedish heritage.
Mr. Prom takes every opportunity he can to make a difference in organizations he serves and in society at large. He is lending his full support to the Swedish Embassy’s HeForShe Campaign because he strongly believes in gender equality. In addition, his father’s Scandinavian background makes him feel a close connection with the Embassy.
“I believe Thailand can become more competitive on the global scale and operate more effectively as a country when men and women enjoy equal rights,” he said. “The strengths and capabilities of women as human resources tend to be overlooked where gender disparities persist. If gender gaps are narrowed and both men and women enjoy equal opportunities, I think Thailand will become more prosperous.”
Together with Mr. Prom and its colleagues at UN Women, the Embassy of Sweden hopes to contribute to the improvement of gender equality in Thailand.
