Aline Santos

As Executive Vice President for Global Marketing, championing gender equality in the workplace and advertising is a top priority for Aline. In the last two years, she has been responsible for leading Unilever’s gender balance efforts, aiming to increase female representation in management. On International Women’s Day, Unilever launched the ‘Unstereotype-Changing Mindsets’ programme that aims to remove the limiting power of stereotypes and unconscious bias in the workplace. Aline works with external organisations including INSEAD and Harvard to study the market for the most progressive ways of working to incorporate into Unilever’s policies. Recognising the power of partnerships to accelerate progress, Aline led an initiative with United Nations Women to unite industry leaders to tackle the widespread prevalence of stereotypes in the advertising industry. In 2017, 24 global companies including Facebook, Google and Diageo, came together to make Unstereotype a reality cross-sector and to create impact at scale. She also plays an active role in the Women’s Network Forum, chaired by Her Royal Highness, The Countess of Wessex, focussing on driving gender balance in UK corporates. Aline is a mentor with The Mentoring Foundation on its FTSE Next Generation Women’s Leaders Programme which helps companies develop their talent pipeline.
