Since becoming Diageo’s Chief Executive in 2013, Ivan has championed Inclusion and Diversity across the whole of the organisation, as well as the wider drinks and hospitality industry. As well as ambitious 2030 goals to increase the representation of women in Diageo leadership roles and the percentage of suppliers from female and minority-owned businesses, Diageo is amongst the first companies to have created a clear link and direct accountability for ESG commitments with its senior management community, meaning that ever senior leader is incentivised to make progress on this agenda. This year the firm has continued to empower women and to lean into often taboo subjects: its Global Menopause Guidelines are now live in over 40 countries and it introduced Domestic and Family Abuse Guidelines to foster a working environment that promotes safety and respect.
