Diversity, Equity and Inclusion

Being a truly inclusive and diverse organisation is not only the right thing to do, it’s the key to our growth and success.

Our Purpose

Our company purpose shapes our business and inspires our people: We brew the joy of true togetherness to inspire a better world. 

We continue to embrace and promote diversity, equity and inclusion (DE&I) across our business. We want all of our colleagues to feel comfortable in bringing their true selves to work every single day. 

We believe it’s important that our colleagues are representative of our customers and consumers.  We also firmly believe that diverse teams bring broader perspectives and a breadth of experiences and skills.  That’s a win win for the business and our colleagues.

Brighton Pride

We’re proud to raise the pride flag in Brighton.

Pouring with Love

Pride Month is more than a celebration. It’s an important moment of reflection on the past and a positive outlook for the future for the LGBTQIA+ community, supported by allies.

We honour all forms of love and identities. And we champion a culture of belonging – where everyone feels safe, included and valued for who they are.

Our HEINEKEN Open and Proud Colleague Network group is all about fostering an open and inclusive workplace that values the contribution of each and every one of our colleagues, including members of the LGBTQIA+ community.

Race & Ethnicity

There are things we can all do to diversify our perspective of race, ethnic backgrounds and different heritages. We can gain an understanding of experiences that we might not have been exposed to before. 

Our Race & Ethnicity Colleague Network looks into ways of supporting and equipping colleagues with the knowledge and capability required to support our business. This includes raising awareness and educating colleagues on topics such as allyship and helping leaders navigate a safe conversation around race and ethnicity

Age Inclusion

We want to create an environment that embraces colleagues of all ages and ensures equal opportunities and respect for individuals regardless of their age. 

The Age Inclusion Colleague Network played a significant role in introducing our updated Menopause Policy and People Manager Guidelines. We now have a team of 20 skilled Menopause Mentors, who can offer support to those in need. 

By helping our business implement age-inclusive practices we’re creating a business where people from different generations learn from one another, work together and collectively contribute to our success.

Women & Allies Network

We’re focussed on improving gender balance at all levels of our business, with particular focus on closing the gap between male and females in senior roles. 

Our Women & Allies Network has a roadmap designed to do just that. In 2022 they ran mentoring events, maternity buddy networks, focussed on male mental health, gender dashboards, capability programmes and much more.
