What you should know

Celebrating its inclusive and diverse culture is core to Diageo’s purpose of "celebrating life every day everywhere". This purpose is, in itself, inclusive in nature, as it values everybody irrespective of background, religion, sexuality or ethnicity. Diageo knows that for the business to thrive and for Diageo to realise its ambition, they depend on having diverse talent with a range of backgrounds, skills and capabilities.

One of Diageo’s distinguishing features is how they have successfully created genuine "global citizens" within their employee base. Through their talent management programme we frequently move people around the world – from their Executive level through to their graduates – so that people bring multi-market and multi-cultural experiences back to their everyday roles. Over the last five years they have also seen an increase in the number of women on International Assignments or transfers within the company.

They are particularly proud of achieving greater diversity at the most senior level. 40% of its Board members and 40% of its Executive Committee are women. They are also focused on delivering their target to increase the representation of women in their senior leadership to 35% by 2020.
