NESTLÉ STEPS UP EFFORTS TO INCREASE NUMBER OF WOMEN IN MANAGEMENT BY 2022
Nestlé has presented an action plan to increase the number of women in managerial positions globally. Company thus wants to emphasize its dedication in providing equal opportunities for all employees in the company.
Nestlé has made progress over the past few years in increasing the number of women in managerial positions. Today, 43% of these positions in the company are held by women. With a plan to accelerate gender equality, Nestlé will now put a special emphasis on increasing the share of women in the top 200 management positions, from about 20% to 30% by 2022.
Mark Schneider, CEO, Nestlé, said: “That’s simply the right decision. We believe that more diverse workforce with more women at the helm, will strengthen our inclusive culture and make Nestlé even better. We set measurable goals in order to be responsible in delivering them.”
Locally, Nestlé in the Adriatic region now employs 717 people, 57% of whom are women and 43% men. As for managerial positions, 62% of department managers are women, and 38% are men.
FEMALE CREATIVES STRIVE TO ADD WOMEN THROUGH AD-WOMEN
Ad-women.com, a global register of female talent linked to the advertising industry, launched today.
Behind the initiative are the two creators Lina Franzon and Johanna Johansson – with the end goal of creating a more equal advertising industry.
The initiative started in the autumn of 2016, when the two friends and former colleagues launched the Swedish precursor “Kreatörskvinnor”. They received very positive response and requests to scale up the project globally and include more titles. With the help of a Kickstarter campaign, backing of twenty agencies and 145 individuals, ad-women.com stands ready to provide the industry with female candidates for any position – and women with role models proving that anything is possible.
As of today, the register consists of three hundred women spread all over the world, but with the launch in full swing now, the duo hopes that the number will explode. You can check out the initiative, register and search for female talents here.
PUBLICIS TO MERGE SPARK FOUNDRY AND BLUE 449
Publicis Groupe’s Media division announced a merger of two of their agency networks, Blue 449 and Spark Foundry, to create a single entity serving clients around the world.
This marks the latest in an ongoing series of restructuring and consolidation moves for the holding company, the most recent of which retired the 28-year-old Razorfish brand to create Publicis Sapient. In this case, however, neither business will completely disappear, as Blue 449 retains its name in three key markets: the U.S., the U.K. and France. CEOs David Elhers, Simon Davis and Pascal Crifo will continue to lead those regions and work cooperatively with the new worldwide Spark Foundry organization.
The two currently include such major brands as Mondelez, Campbell’s, Marriott and Southwest Airlines, among many others, on their client rosters.
As a result of this merger, the global brand will deepen its presence in 12 markets around the world including Australia, Canada, China, Germany, India, Italy, MENA, Mexico, Poland, Russia, Singapore and Spain. Spark Foundry now employs 4,200, a total that does not include Blue 449 staffers in the U.S., U.K. and France.
