Aline continues to lead Unilever’s Unstereotype internal change programme, aiming to remove all stereotypes from Unilever’s advertising and branded communications, and includes unconscious bias training, best practice sharing and inspirational examples to help marketers challenge bias and harmful stereotypes. During Aline’s time as Chief D&I Officer, representation of women in managerial levels at Unilever has increased from 46% to 49%. In 2017, the Global Maternal Well-Being Standard was introduced, enabling greater attraction and retention of women across all countries Unilever operates in. In 2018, this was built upon with the Global Paternity Leave Standard. Last year, Aline launched the ‘Gamechangers for Gender Equality’ campaign to celebrate male and female employees who are breaking stereotypes and driving positive change. Working with UN Women, Aline is the Vice Chair for the Unstereotype Alliance, bringing together a powerful and growing global coalition of leading industry players with the common goal of eliminating gender bias and harmful stereotypes from their advertising by 2020. She also plays an active role in the Women’s Network Forum, chaired by Her Royal Highness, The Countess of Wessex, focusing on driving gender balance in UK corporates. Aline is also an active member of the 30% Club, and a mentor with The Mentoring Foundation on its FTSE Next Generation Women’s Leaders Programme which helps companies develop their talent pipeline.
