CEW Honors Unilever With 2013 Corporate Empowerment For Women Award

Cosmetic Executive Women, a leading professional organization in the beauty, cosmetics, fragrance and related industries, today honored Unilever with its Corporate Empowerment for Women Award, recognizing the consumer goods company’s commitment to cultivating a workplace environment that provides opportunity, empowerment and skills for women. Gina Boswell, Unilever’s EVP of Personal Care, and Ashley Boyce, Global Associate Brand Development Manager, Hair, accepted the Award on behalf of the company during the CEW’s annual Achiever Awards Luncheon.

Each year, the Corporate Empowerment for Women Award recognizes one company in the beauty industry that demonstrates a commitment to advancing women leaders within its organization. Specifically, Unilever is being recognized for its initiatives in three key areas: professional development, work/life flexibility, and the development of future leaders.

“Unilever is honored to receive this award as a testament to our commitment to workplace diversity and nurturing female talent within our organization,” said Kees Kruythoff, president of Unilever North America. “We take pride in putting women at the forefront, through programs that empower women as current and future leaders, as well as understanding and connecting with female consumers.”

Currently, nearly half of Unilever employees and approximately 42 percent of managers and executives are women.

“Being recognized by the CEW and the cosmetics industry as an organization committed to the advancement of women is a proud moment for Unilever,” Gina Boswell, EVP, Unilever Personal Care. “Personally it is very rewarding to be able to foster the next generation of leaders, and to work for a company that is so focused on women’s development, both professionally and outside of the office.”

Unilever focuses on nurturing female talent through its diversity program, which includes leadership immersion programs, mentoring, and flexible working. The company’s agile working program, for example, allows employees to work flexibly – anytime and anywhere – as long as the needs of the business are met. The aim is to create a working environment supportive of family life. The program is widely used, with 48 percent of employees flexing their hours or telecommuting, and 73 percent of employees compressing their work week.
