At Diageo, we believe that achieving gender equality for women in all aspects of life is crucial – not only for our business but also for our society and the communities we operate within.

This is why this year, for International Women’s Day, Diageo is proud to embrace the UN’s theme of “Invest in Women, Accelerate Progress”. It’s a theme that forces society to discuss the importance of proactive investments in women, and how by doing so we can accelerate progress.

Diageo is committed to the transformative power of investing in women, and beyond our employees this commitment extends to our supply chain, the communities we work with is, even across the advertising and media environment. By empowering women, we not only foster a more inclusive workplace but also contribute to the wellbeing of the communities we serve. In this video, find out more about how Diageo is investing in women across our business.


Inclusion and Diversity at Diageo

At Diageo, inclusion and diversity is more than a strategic priority – it’s central to who we are. By championing diversity, we tap into a wealth of perspectives, experiences, and talents.

From the female entrepreneurs of the eighteenth century to the colleagues who are breaking barriers in our business today, women play a crucial role in shaping the success of Diageo.

We are proud of the strides we have made to accelerate gender equality within our business; last week we were ranked number two for female representation at Board Level within the FTSE Women Leaders Review, as well as ranking number three globally and number one in the UK in Equileap’s Gender Equality Global Report. But we are not done yet, and we are committed to making progress all year round.

Investing in women unlocks their full potential, leading to innovation, increased productivity, and improved community wellbeing. By prioritising investment in women, we can break down barriers, challenge gender norms, and ultimately build a more equitable society.
