At Wella Company, we believe that becoming a truly inclusive and equitable leader in beauty requires that we commit to building diverse teams & brands that reflect the backgrounds of the professionals and consumers we intend to serve. As part of our efforts to achieve this goal we will foster workplaces where everyone of every ethnicity, background, religion, gender, sexual identity, age or disability is welcome, valued and enabled to achieve their highest potential and bring their unique contributions to our businesses.
We believe equality benefits all of us and are committed to attracting, hiring, advancing and retaining a diverse workforce to include representation at every management level of the company.
We excel as an organization when everyone feels valued, seen and heard and understand the many different ideals and diverse perspectives that exist in our organization. We will celebrate culturally relevant events, improve and build capabilities in our respective functions and affinity groups.
We’re investing in unique training programs to better understand and overcome how bias and micro-aggressions manifest in the workplace and to continually develop our diverse people, new hires and leaders.
We create products for customers and consumers from all walks of life around the world. We are committed to ensure our brands, products, services & curriculums are representative and meet the needs of every form of Beauty in every culture.
We will seek companies and global leaders with consistent values and commitment to Diversity & Inclusion for partnership to advance the conversations and effect substantive change in and outside our organization.
It’s not enough just for us to change our ways in being more diverse and inclusive. We need to influence the world around us, corporately and personally, to do the same. It’s not enough to say look at us, we need to encourage everyone to look at themselves.
