TRESemmé Pledges to Advance Women in Leadership
This New York Fashion Week, TRESemmé has launched its #WomenLeadTheWay pledge a commitment to advance women into leadership as only 6.6% of leadership positions in Fortune 500 companies are held by women. This is particularly prevalent in fashion and beauty where only 21% of fashion and beauty brands are run by women which results in a huge gender leadership gap exemplified by the latest Salary Survey on the Cosmetic & Personal Care Industry covering 2018-19 from Arthur Edward Global Cosmetic Recruitment.
TRESemmé recognises that 70% of the workforce in the industry is female and thus aims for a gender balance across the organisation through establishing formal development and mentorship opportunities for women at all levels.
Other than in the organisation, TRESemmé is also supporting women across the industry by providing a template letter of a call to action in support of female advancement in the industry to send to Human Resources.
