LEAD Network Team

As part of our vision to drive greater gender-balanced leadership across the European retail and CPG industry, the LEAD Network Mentorship Programme offers a unique solution. High potential mentees are matched with experienced senior leaders from across the retail and CPG sector.


Our cross-gender, cross-company, cross-country approach to matching helps to broker valuable inter-company leadership connections and facilitate important external industry perspectives. The mentorship environment is safe, providing a wonderful experience for growth discussion.


As the program is unique to the European CPG and retail industry, it’s a powerful educational offer to develop and empower the next generation of inclusive leaders through personal development and up-skilling.

It's easy to describe the impact of our program when you have mentors describing their experience in this way:

"I am enjoying the experience fully. As we come from different industries and regions, our exchange is mutually beneficial. Also, it helps me see how to best connect with Women in STEM, and how to support them in their leadership development…mentoring is a growth opportunity for the mentor and for the mentee, and a unique chance to take time off the hustle and bustle of our daily lives, to reflect on leadership, competences, strengths and, ultimately, our humanity and vulnerability. Thank you LEAD!”
