Nestlé Gender Balance Acceleration Plan

Increasing the number of women in the top 200 senior executive positions by 2022

Nestlé has made progress in recent years increasing the number of women in managerial positions. Today, 43% of these roles are held by women. With its Gender Balance Acceleration Plan,  Nestlé will now put further emphasis on increasing the proportion of women in the group’s top 200 senior executive positions from around 20% currently to 30% by 2022.

Bold leadership

Holding ourselves accountable by setting measurable goals, and demonstrating visible commitment at the highest level of the organization.

Empowering culture

Fostering inclusive workplaces through our policies, and the training of our managers on unconscious bias, among other initiatives.

Enabling practices

Supporting women through our talent management practices and by enhancing mentoring and sponsorship programs to prepare high-potential women for senior executive positions.

The acceleration plan aims to increase the proportion of women in the top 200 senior executive positions to 30% by 2022.

To achieve this we are taking these actions:

  • Supporting all managers to foster an inclusive workplace and ensuring that they are trained on unconscious bias
  • Encouraging the use of Nestlé’s paid parental leave program and flexible work policies in place in all Nestlé operating companies
  • Enhancing mentoring and sponsorship programs to prepare high-potential women for senior executive positions
  • Hiring and promoting more women in senior executive positions
  • Reviewing results with senior leaders to promote gender balance and ensure progress
  • Continuing our efforts to champion equal pay and eliminate conditions that create gender pay gaps
  • Reporting progress in Nestlé’s annual Creating Shared Value report
