• The mission of the LEAD Network (Leading Executives Advancing Diversity) is to attract, retain and advance women in the retail and consumer goods industry in Europe through education, leadership and business development.

    LEAD is convinced organisations can create more sustainable value by leveraging the full talent pool. Our Vision is a diverse workforce where both men and women are enabled to contribute their full potential and lead their organisations to the next level of value creation. We believe that advancing more women to take on leadership roles is required to face actual business challenges.

    We are a non-profit organisation and our focus specifically on Retail and CPG industry only is unique within Europe.

  • Why EY is a LEAD Foundation Partner

    “According to the WEF Global Gender Gap Report 2014, it will take until 2095 to achieve global gender parity in the workplace.
    At EY, we believe it is far too long and we are committed to do what we can to accelerate women’s progress in the workplace. The Consumer Products & Retail sector is going through a significant transformation and diversity of thought and experience, in particular at senior management, will be critical to navigate change and improve companies’ performance. We are delighted to join forces with LEAD to help achieve its objectives and drive momentum.”
