ASL Global recognises the importance of diversity, equality and inclusion within the working environment. We believe that diversity of thought, experience, beliefs and cultures helps to build a more innovative, dynamic and successful business.
Proudly Women-Owned & Women-Led
Uniquely in our industry, not only are the majority of our shareholders female, but ASL is also predominantly led by female employees. With a healthy 63% representation on the Senior Leadership Team and overall staff numbers at 67% female, our business stands alone in the marketing services sector as a proudly women-owned and women-led business.
ASL employs people in 50+ countries from a wide range of social, economic & cultural backgrounds. And we want our business to be a true reflection of the communities in which we operate. We strive to make a positive contribution to these communities by conducting our business in a fair and inclusive way.
An Inclusive Mindset
ASL is a true meritocracy. We welcome anyone with fresh thinking and a passion for bringing ideas to life. We do not discriminate based on factors such as race, religion, colour, ethnicity, national origin, disability, sexual orientation, age, gender, gender identity, gender expression or marital status. And we actively encourage gender equality, ethnic diversity and inclusivity of under-represented groups through a variety of proactive initiatives.
Clearly Defined Goals
We have challenged ourselves with five clearly defined targets which encourage Diversity in our business. We are working to achieve these goals by 2025.
- Goal 1 - at least 50% female representation on our Senior Leadership Team (achieved 2021)
- Goal 2 - at least 50% ethnically diverse representation on our Senior Leadership Team (achieved 2021)
- Goal 3 -at least 50% female & under-represented groups benefiting from ASL community projects (achieved 2021)
- Goal 4 - socially & educationally diverse Intern/Work Experience programme operational in 100% of ASL's key markets (in progress)
- Goal 5 - at least 50% of ASL's suppliers showing progress on their DEI assessment audit (in progress)
We're already surpassing the initial goals set for this year in regards to diversity, equality & inclusion. For example, we currently have over 50% female and ethnically diverse representation on our Senior Leadership Team. Our community programmes specifically target & benefit women and other under-represented groups. And our Intern programme is developing quickly, offering career opportunities for talented young people in 50 countries worldwide.
We're proud of this progress and remain on track to successfully acheiving all our Diversity goals well before 2025.
ASL Global has created a comprehensive roadmap to Sustainability which provides us with a progressive 5 year plan. Our plan has clear milestones and measurable targets which ensure all our company goals and values are being met and maintained.
