L’Oréal Launches its Global Diversity & Inclusion Advisory Board

Jean Paul Agon

“We have been committed and proactive on Diversity & Inclusion for over 15 years, and now is time to accelerate even faster. We continue listening and learning as we continue to prioritize concrete action.”


Jean-Paul Agon, Chairman and CEO
L’Oréal was proud to convene the first meeting of our Global Diversity & Inclusion Advisory Board on January 19th, 2021 assembling a brilliant and diverse group of external experts and members of our leadership including co-chairs CEO Jean-Paul Agon and Chief D&I Officer Margaret Johnston-Clarke, 

The Board’s role is to foster open discussion on how to strengthen L’Oréal‘s commitments and enrich our Diversity & Inclusion strategy. Board members are welcomed to speak up, to share insights and constructive criticism helping contribute to our action plan to moving forward on all pillars, notably on “Socio-Economic & Multicultural Origins”. The Global Board will meet three times per year, with local D&I Advisory Boards also being formed, currently in North America and in the UK & Ireland. 

Diversity & Inclusion issues are more pressing and essential today than ever before. From consumers to employees, the level of awareness and demand for proof points on D&I is unprecedented, which we see as a challenge and an opportunity to rise to the occasion.
We know that D&I topics are complex and that no one person has all the answers. We must listen, learn and take informed action, in line with our Sense of Purpose, to Create the Beauty that moves the world.
