Avon is known as “the company for women,” and to this 131-year-old organization, it’s more than a slogan. Avon—which built its brand by giving women the opportunity to succeed on their own terms—today boasts a global workforce comprising 60% women. But even it is not immune to one of the most common corporate gender balance problems: a smaller proportion of women at the senior leadership level. While globally women constitute 41% of the director and above population, a position many organizations would envy, Avon is committed to raising the bar, most notably in its Latin American region where the decline in representation of women at the leadership level is steeper.
