Creating a Diverse Workforce & Stirring Up Conversations About Equality
We believe in the inherent value that can be created when you bring together a diverse and inclusive community and workplace. Helping female talent at Bacardi, and within our community, is among the causes championed by the company through its Women in Leadership initiative. For a third year in a row, Bacardi hosted an all-day Summit open to more than 500 people across the South Florida community who came together to hear personal and professional stories from changemakers. For the first time, the Summit was replicated in London with a similar agenda that covered gender equality, diversity and inclusivity. A smaller, more intimate event designed specifically for females within the hospitality industry concluded a U.S. tour across five cities to help empower, inspire and support participants. Internally, our mentorship program expanded to more than 250 Primos across markets matching female mentees with both men and women across the business.
