Margherita was named the Global Leader for the Dow Women’s Inclusion Network (WIN) Employee Resource Group in 2020. For four years prior to this she led Dow WIN in the EMEAI Region, helping to move the needle for female representation at leadership levels to 50%. Margherita was responsible for developing and implementing the group’s strategy, including setting up a Female Sponsorship Program. Established in partnership with INSEAD Business School, it was the first ever sponsorship program for female talent in the EMEAI region. Within 18 months 50% of the female talent who participated had been promoted to leadership roles. Last year Margherita developed the second cohort of the program, which is aiming to help promote 80% of the 36 women participating within 24 months. In 2023 the 3rd edition of the Female Talent Sponsorship program will be run, to continue the focused efforts in developing Dow Female talents across the organization. Other initiatives she has headed up have included attaining an Equal Pay Certification for Dow Switzerland and sponsoring the role model stories of Dow’s ‘Hidden Heroes’.
