03-Feb-2023 - Spain

HEINEKEN's practices in the areas of labor equality, equity and parity, as well as its commitment to diversity, have earned the brewery a place in Bloomberg's prestigious Gender Equality Index, which this year highlighted 483 companies. This ranking recognizes worldwide gender initiatives of listed companies in all sectors, with a special focus on FMCG, finance, technology and public services.


In addition to committing to eliminate any gap in equal pay, HEINEKEN has the objective, according to its Evergreen strategy, to reach 30% of women in senior management positions by 2025 and 40% by 2030, with initiatives launched in 2021 such as Women in Sales or WIN (Women Interactive Network), where 100 women of 36 nationalities have participated in this leadership development program during its last edition.

In HEINEKEN Spain, women already represent 33% of the members of the management committee, with the aim of enhancing equality in a very industrial sector, promoting the talent and development of women with great potential in all areas of the company with initiatives such as:

  • Programs such as the quarterly forum "Conversaciones con Acento", female mentoring programs such as "Mujeres con Poderío", Women in Sales or Women in Supply.
  • Equal Pay Plan with 'Equal Pay Certificate' recognition.

"This recognition inspires us to continue working on our equality and inclusion initiatives and to consolidate the programs we have launched in recent years. For us, it is essential to continue making progress so that diversity is fully integrated into our company strategy," said Monica Zai, People Director at HEINEKEN Spain.

Equality benchmark

This ranking by Bloomberg evaluates the performance of companies that are committed to gender equality initiatives based on five pillars: leadership and talent pipeline; equal pay and pay parity between men and women; inclusive culture; anti-sexual harassment policies; and external branding.
