We’re proud to support the LEAD CEO pledge to accelerate gender parity and drive inclusion.

The purpose of the pledge is to promote a diverse workforce where men and women in the retail and consumer goods industry in Europe can contribute fully. We strongly support that aim because we know the value that diverse teams bring to business decisions and success.

We’re committed to ensuring that 50% of our manager positions are held by women by 2025 (currently 37%), and to creating an inclusive culture for all. Among a host of steps already taken to make that a reality, we’re currently running a wide-ranging internal communications campaign to raise awareness and understanding of diversity and inclusion principles across our company and supporting our senior leaders through inclusive leadership development.

We know from experience that diverse teams deliver better business outcomes and we are working to ensure everyone feels they belong in Coca‑Cola HBC.
