Balance for Better: Celebrating International Women’s Day

March 8, 2019 – Ahold Delhaize launched a week-long campaign to celebrate International Women’s Day on March 8, a global celebration to raise awareness of the need for gender equality. This year’s theme is Balance for Better, grounded in the idea of an exciting future where we expect balance, where we all play a part, and where we can create gender parity. 

To kick off the campaign, we created a special 'female'' Ahold Delhaize logo, temporarily replacing our traditional 'male' lion's head.

“The theme fits well with our diversity and inclusion ambition at Ahold Delhaize,” said Chief Human Resources Officer Abbe Luersman. Focusing on this topic in the right way will ready us for the future and is a key element of Best Talent, one of the growth drivers of our Leading Together strategy. 

We sat down with Abbe and Frans to talk about #BalanceforBetter within Ahold Delhaize. Check out the video below.
