For the second year, the Network of Executive Women has published a special edition magazine, NEW Leader, that examines the business case for diversity and inclusion in the retail and consumer goods industry.
The 44-page special edition magazine features articles on the competitive advantages of women’s leadership, the double bind faced by multicultural women, why men should champion women at work and how millennials are reshaping the industry’s workplace. NEW Leader also features profiles of 12 new generation leaders who are supporting gender parity and helping their companies succeed.
"The industry’s workforce is in transition and companies that adjust their talent strategies and transform their workplaces to attract and develop the best talent — regardless of gender, race, age or sexual orientation — will win,” said NEW President and CEO Joan Toth. "We’re proud to showcase industry leaders who are working with NEW to make the retail and consumer goods industry stronger and position their companies as employers of choice.”
NEW Leader magazine, written by the Network of Executive Women and published by Stagnito + Edgell, includes insights from senior executives, infographics illustrating the latest statistics and data on women’s leadership and a gender diversity quiz. Companies featured include 7-Eleven Inc., Acosta Sales & Marketing, Ahold, BIC, Clorox Company, Colgate-Palmolive, Delhaize America, General Mills, Hallmark Cards, Johnson & Johnson, Kellogg Company, The Kroger Co., McCormick & Co., Meijer, Nestle Group, PepsiCo Inc., Procter & Gamble, The Schwan Food Company, Unified Grocers Inc. and Unilever.
More than 55,000 copies of the one-off, standalone NEW Leader magazine were distributed with print copies of Progressive Grocer and Retail Leader in April and will be available at 2016 industry events.
