In January, Louise was appointed Chief HR Officer and is the Executive member responsible for the design and implementation of Diageo’s Inclusion and Diversity strategy. Under Louise’s leadership, Diageo has fostered a culture with inclusion and diversity at its heart. In 2020, Louise led the creation of Diageo’s progressive Ethnic Inclusion & Diversity Framework to support markets to define multi-year plans covering representation, capability, and external partnerships that impact society. This also included setting an ambitious goal to increase ethnic diverse representation across leadership to 45% by 2030, and after only one year, representation stands at 37%. Thanks to Louise’s efforts, the company was praised by the FTSE Women Leaders Review, Bloomberg Gender Equality Index and Equileap’s Gender Equality Global Report.
