Unilever is very strongly committed to diversity and inclusion and offers strong policies to encourage this.
We have a D&I committee that is active in organising employee events that promote diversity, equity and inclusion. This is a growing focus for Unilever and leadership don't shy away from the hard stuff. Parental leave policy is unreal - 16 weeks paid regardless of whether you are the mother or father.
A company could not have a higher commitment to this. In particular, there are job sharing roles available and a very good maternity and paternity policy which many employees take advantage of.
We have a really good M:F ratio within our business, with women represented at all levels. We do our best to create a workplace where everyone feels safe to be themselves and have a lot of initiatives to bring that to the forefront and ensure we have the best talent and speak about it. We have many women who go on mat leave and can come back part time etc. We probably have less cultural and LGBT diversity than we would aim for within our mix currently, which I know the recruitment team are working on. We have the Rainbow Tick which means we have met criteria to be a recommended safe place to work for LGBT people.
