A grand #thankyou to METRO AG and Laura Halfas for their Foundation partnership continued support, and intentional commitment to the LEAD Network mission to attract, retain and advance women in the retail and consumer goods industry in Europe through education, leadership, and business development.
Laura Halfas, Head of Global Diversity & Inclusion METRO AG, says: "At METRO, we believe that an inclusive workplace is a key to business growth. That's why we have set goals for women in leadership positions and anchored the development and empowerment of all talents in our Diversity & Inclusion Strategy. The LEAD network has already helped us push these topics further by exchanging eye-level with others facing the same challenges. Together we learn and inspire each other. Since becoming a LEAD Network partner in 2016, the percentage of women in leadership positions has increased by 4% at METRO. By now becoming a foundation partner, we want to raise the bar even higher."
