Diversity and inclusion
Our target is to achieve gender balance across our leadership roles by 2030. In 2021 we defined a D&I roadmap identifying actions in five key areas to ensure we achieve this. These areas are: diversity data gathering; improving D&I awareness; developing our D&I brand; measuring and setting KPIs and alignment to reward and recognition.
We have continued to build D&I awareness across Croda, including running masterclasses from thought leaders in the field. We established a new global development programme focused on inclusive leadership called Phoenix Rising. As part of our approach to understanding local inclusion and diversity needs, our regional teams also established new D&I sub-committees to complement our Global D&I Committee. These have been instrumental in advising regional management on a range of topics to help deliver real change in our employee experience.
