Nestlé commits to promote gender balance

Nestlé commits to promote gender balance

Nestlé has today launched a series of employee conferences across the world to help reach our ambition to be a gender balanced company by 2018.

The ‘Leading Together’ conferences will bring together women and men of all generations to discuss and debate how we can accelerate diversity and inclusion in the company. A key topic is creating the enabling conditions in the work environment to achieve annual increases in the percentage of women managers and senior leaders.

Diversity and inclusion are an integral part of Nestlé’s culture. That’s why Nestlé was ranked 13th in the 2016 Thomson Reuters Diversity and Inclusion Index. Nestlé has identified three ways to drive diversity and inclusion in the company:

Culture; building an inclusive culture and putting the diversity of our employees to best use by working together.

Innovation; thinking about the needs of diverse consumers and making our products and services more accessible – whenever, wherever, however.

Society; acting and engaging in an inclusive way with society and stakeholders in our diverse business environments, across the entire value chain.
