In 2023, Danone Canada was proudly awarded Parity Certification by Women in Governance, a unique certification that evaluates parity at the decision-making level of organizations, assesses the implementation of mechanisms that enable women to achieve career advancement and gives particular attention to intersectionality.
This year marked the third edition of the Annual Leading and Inspiring Female Talent (LIFT) Recognition Awards, a peer-to-peer recognition event highlighting Danone employees (women and all genders) who inspire, empower and support allyship within the organization.
Danone’s Inclusive Diversity Council was launched with the mandate of supporting, strengthening and creating synergies across Danone Employee Resource Groups (ERGs), as well as establishing and maintaining standards for external DEI partnerships. A dedicated inclusive diversity role was introduced within the Canadian human resource team. The focus is overseeing the development and progress of Danone Canada’s D&I efforts.
