HAMBURG, Germany , April 5, 2022 (press release) –

  • CEO Vincent Warnery emphasizes Beiersdorf’s commitment to greater diversity and gender equality by signing the CEO Pledge.
  • By 2025, the Group intends to achieve gender parity at all management levels.
  • The proportion of women on Beiersdorf's Executive Committee is now 33 percent.

The skincare company Beiersdorf is taking a further stand for more diversity: By signing the CEO Pledge of the LEAD Network (Leading Executives Advancing Diversity), CEO Vincent Warnery commits to promote the careers of women at Beiersdorf worldwide. This underscores Beiersdorf’s Gender Parity Ambition announced last year: The company aims to achieve gender parity at all management levels by 2025.

“We have a responsibility as a company to specifically promote diversity and inclusion, and in doing so, also influence and bring about positive change in our society,” said Vincent Warnery. “For me, signing the CEO Pledge is another important step in driving our commitment to gender parity. I truly believe that gender balance at all levels not only strengthens our innovative power, but also makes us a more attractive employer for international talent.”

Mick Broekhof, cofounder and Secretary of the Executive Committee of the LEAD Network, welcomed the signing: “I am delighted that Vincent Warnery signed the CEO Pledge on behalf of Beiersdorf. With this signature, the Group is marking another milestone in our endeavors to achieve gender parity in the consumer goods industry.”

Proportion of women in management positions at Beiersdorf continues to grow

Beiersdorf has already made significant progress since introducing its Gender Parity Ambition. The share of female representation in global leadership population continuously increased to 47 percent since the company began reporting the numbers in 2017. With Grita Loebsack being appointed as President NIVEA, after Astrid Hermann having joined the Executive Committee as CFO and Dr. Gitta Neufang as Head of R&D in 2021, the Group has moved the representation of women on the Executive Committee from 0 percent in 2017 to 33 percent today.
