P&G is committed to building a supportive environment and inclusive culture so everyone at P&G can reach their full potential. We hire talented women and men equally at entry level. Women represent almost half of our management roles and about one-third of our senior leadership. But we know we can do better — our talent pipeline is as important as our innovation pipeline. We are committed to achieving gender balance at all levels of the Company while continuing to make sustained progress across our diverse organization.
In partnership with Catalyst, we offer MARC (Men Advocating Real Change) training that helps men understand and fulfill the role they can play to help achieve gender balance inside and outside P&G.
On our 2017 employee survey, overall gender equality was the second highest scoring category at 89% favorable for total company, right behind pride in Company and right ahead of Employer of Choice. On training and support networks, 800 senior leaders completed Intentionally Inclusive Leadership training in year one, P&G is the largest corporate sponsor of Lean In with more than 4,000 women participating today and 100% of Athena in Action participants would recommend the program to a colleague. Against our 2020 targets, we’ve made excellent progress at our top management levels in year one.
We aspire to create a better world for everyone—a world free of gender bias with equal representation and an equal voice for women and men. This begins inside our own company—where we’re striving for equal representation for women and men at all levels of our company—and building an inclusive culture where everyone can contribute to their full potential.
