Unilever has pledged to achieve gender parity at managerial level by 2020 with help from the Lead Network, according to a report published by The Drum.
Unilever will work with the umbrella organization to advance more women to senior level over the next few months. The Anglo-Dutch FMCG giant’s CEO Alan Jope posted the company’s commitment on Twitter.
“Signed, sealed and soon delivered: I commit to accelerate gender parity @Unilever. With @Lead_eu_net I pledge to deliver our goal of 50 percent women at manager level and significantly increase female representation at the top levels before 2020,” Jope wrote on the social media platform.
