Commitment to diversity

Unilever’s ambition is to be an admired diversity leader – recognized as both a great place to work and employer of choice.  Unilever’s LGBT Diversity Network “PRIDE”, shares a common goal of endorsing Respect, Individuality, Diversity, and Equality throughout the organization.  It serves as an enabler to advancing the company’s diversity & inclusion commitment by acting as liaisons between employees and management to share best practices, increase awareness about the business need for and impacts of a diverse workforce and develop a more inclusive workplace.  Partnering with Pride at Work will connect Unilever to Canada’s broader PRIDE community recognizing that strong brand presence in the community will ultimately help Unilever attract and retain diverse top talent.  Pride at Work also will provide Unilever with the ability to leverage best practices from other organizations excelling in this area while enhancing Unilever’s reputation for being active in the community. 

Vision for the future

Unilever continuously works to create better futures every day by improving quality of life – finding new ways to do business, while doubling in size and reducing their environmental impact.  They achieve this by growing sustainably and by winning with brands and innovation in the marketplace, and through continuous improvement and above all, with their people.  They encourage all of their employees to adopt a growth mindset and be passionate about winning and leading the market.

Building a sustainable culture of inclusion is critical to Unilever’s success.  They will only achieve their full potential as a team by leveraging the diversity among their employees – their strengths, passions, experiences, and unique abilities.

 

At Unilever, building a diverse team is how we will ensure we continue to raise our bar on talent. We need to attract and retain top talent in order to continue growing world famous brands such as Dove, Ben & Jerry's, and Hellmann's. Our commitment to diversity and inclusion can be seen in the great work of our LGBT and ally community and our 100 score on the HRC Corporate Equality Index. We have an active employee network supported by every level of the organization. They contribute to the Diversity & Inclusion Agenda by attracting talent through university recruiting, participation in industry events, and engaging all employees in community support. I'm extremely proud of everything we have accomplished, and to be working at a company who places such importance on diversity.
