Henkel Women’s Network aims to empower, develop and support the advancement of women by helping them reach their full potential at Henkel and establish a diverse pipeline of future leaders to achieve Henkel’s strategic and business goals. The ERG creates opportunities where employees can connect, feel a sense of community, share ideas and have a stronger impact on Henkel’s success.
Until recently, there were several women-focused ERGs across different Henkel locations with similar missions. In order to strengthen the impact of these ERGs and create more opportunities for employees to get involved, their leaders worked together to unify under one shared mission and establish one group: the Henkel Women’s Network.
The Network, which officially launched with its new name on International Women’s Day (March 8), is helping drive Henkel’s Diversity Equity and Inclusion approach by creating a safe space, enhancing employee well-being and fostering a more inclusive workplace. Everyone at Henkel is welcome to participate in the organization’s programs, which have included mentoring circles, networking events and speaker events.
