Zalando publishes second diversity and inclusion report
Zalando, the online platform for fashion and lifestyle, has published its second annual diversity and inclusion report.
Called Do Better, the report refers to the retailer’s D&I strategy which was published in May 2021 and sets out 12 concrete commitments, all of which have been tracked in the report.
Over the past year, Zalando has increased the percentage of women in its five top leadership levels to 35.2% from 30.4% in the previous year and grown its percentage of women in tech jobs to 21.2% from a previous 16.7%. It has also launched new training programmes for staff at all levels and increased representation on its Zalando shop to reflect the diversity of its customers.
David Schneider, Zalando co-chief executive, said: “We want to listen, learn, and take action for Zalando to build a diverse and inclusive experience, and to foster an environment where everyone can thrive.
“This year’s D&I report shows our progress and brings us one step closer to our vision: to be the starting point for fashion that is welcoming to everyone, be inclusive by design, bringing to life the diversity of talents, leadership, customers, and partners.”
