2021 AWESOME Sponsors - Flipbook - Page 5
I’m thrilled that McDonald’s is once again sponsoring the AWESOME
Symposium. Connecting with each other for support and to share ideas is
more important than ever as we navigate continuous uncertainty and change.
At McDonald’s, women are a critical component of our global team – from
our restaurants to our headquarters. In fact, women account for more than
50% of McDonald’s total workforce in our Corporate staff and companyowned restaurants across the globe. My role as a McDonald’s leader is to
engage my peers around the world and influence decisions that help drive
success for women at McDonald’s and ultimately – the business.
McDonald’s celebrates diversity in many ways, one of which is our inclusion
networks. The Global Women’s Leadership Network (GWLN), in support of
our Gender Balance Diversity Strategy, strives to serve as a catalyst for
seating, supporting and mentoring women in roles across all levels of
McDonald’s. As a past executive sponsor of GWLN, we developed a
business case making it clear that gender equality is critical to our success as
a Company. This has translated into gender parity KPIs being established at
all levels of the business.
I’m grateful and proud that McDonald’s provides rich
experiences and development opportunities for women,
letting us shine, lifting us up and always giving us a seat
at the table.
