DENVER (March 8, 2023) – Mars Inc.’s M&M’s is celebrating and supporting smart, fearless women in a sweet way with limited edition packaging featuring Purple, Green and Brown “spokescandies” upside-down in their “flipping the status quo” campaign. As part of the campaign and in partnership with the M&M's FUNd Advisory Council, ten winners were selected to be featured on M&M'S platforms and receive $10,000 grants for their big and bold ideas this International Women’s Day. Colorado entrepreneur, Melanie Adams, Founder of Embher, a designer and seller of flame-resistant (FR) clothing made specifically for women, was selected as one of the winners in 2023.
“I am thrilled to receive this recognition,” said Melanie Adams, Founder of Embher. “More women are filling critical operational roles in industry, and they need comfortable FR clothing that fits them.” Women working in the oil and gas, manufacturing and utility industries have few options other than to wear OHSA-compliant clothing designed for men that is ill-fitting and uncomfortable.”
Melanie knows the need for FR clothing that fits women first-hand, given her nearly 18 years of experience working at a major oil and gas company.
When it comes to FR clothing, Embher is bringing the equality that women deserve with clothing designed by women for women. “Our clothing is about giving women workers the safety, comfort, and confidence they need to get the job done in the field.”
International Women's Day is celebrated every year on March 8 around the globe, celebrating the social, economic, cultural, and political achievements of women. The day marks a call to action for accelerating women's equality by showcasing the achievements of women worldwide, raising awareness of discrimination, and acting against gender stereotypes.
Embher, Inc. designs and sells flame-resistant clothing made by women for women. Flame resistant (FR) apparel is required in many heavy industries ranging from oil & gas to refining, petrochemicals, utilities, manufacturing and more. Embher apparel is designed with women in mind, giving them the safety and confidence they need to excel in industrial workspaces.
