Aline Santos

In Aline’s current role as Executive Vice President for Global Marketing and Global Head of Diversity and Inclusion, championing gender equality in the workplace and in advertising is a top priority. She has been key to the #Unstereotype initiative; a movement to eliminate outdated stereotypes from advertising. Aline made the ‘Unstereotype’ commitment public in 2016, and has since been advocating for industry-wide change. 2017 saw the launch of the Unstereotype Alliance with UN Women– an industry wide collaboration to make Unstereotype a reality cross-sector and create impact at scale. Along with leading Unilever’s steady march towards Gender Balance, with current female representation in management at just under 46%, Aline places equal emphasis on building inclusion. On International Women’s Day, Unilever launched the “Unstereotype-Changing Mindsets” program that aims to remove the limiting power of stereotypes and unconscious bias in the workplace. They have also been working to create global standards for wellbeing, including maternity and paternity leave policies, and Aline has been focusing on business areas that have traditionally low female representation. She also plays an active leadership role in the Women’s Network Forum, chaired by Her Royal Highness, The Countess of Wessex, focusing on driving gender balance in UK corporates.
