We recognise that gender equality, women’s rights, education for women and girls worldwide, and women’s empowerment are critical to Creating Shared Value for our business and for society.
Women need a voice and we need not only to listen, but to amplify their voices. Sandra Martinez, Head of Nestlé’s global chocolate and confectionery business
We believe that different ways of thinking complement each other and lead to better decisions. In other words, gender balance simply makes business sense.
It is therefore essential that we help to increase women’s participation in, and contribution to, the value chain in a sustainable way.
In an attempt to overcome some of the challenges women face, such as limited financial resources, knowledge gaps and access to credit and lending, we have developed several initiatives that promote training and professional development for women, in line with the UN’s Millennium Development Goals.
