Diversity and Inclusion
Becoming a truly diverse and inclusive company is not only the right thing to do, it is crucial to helping us grow our business, attract and retain talent, and engage the people who buy our products.
Leena Nair, Chief Human Resources Officer
“Diversity and inclusion at Unilever is about embracing differences, creating possibilities and progressing together to build a sustainable business. My vision for Unilever is to create an inclusive environment that allows all of our people to thrive and perform at their very best, irrespective of their gender or background.”
As a responsible business we are driving equality of opportunity and inclusion, not only within our organisation, but across society. Starting with progressive policies and practices in our workplace, we are building on this foundation by collaborating with other businesses and organisations to create opportunities for women across our extended supply chain, in our sales and customer development operations, and via products and brands for our 2.5 billion consumers worldwide - 70% of whom are women.
Within our business, our diversity and inclusion strategy is driven at the very highest level through our Global Diversity Board, which is chaired by our CEO, Paul Polman, and championed by Aline Santos, Unilever’s SVP Marketing and Global Head of Diversity. The board provides the overarching vision, governance and target setting for diversity and inclusion across the global business.
