Marilu Marshall is Driving Force for I&D at The Estée Lauder Companies

In her role as Senior Vice President, Executive Management and Chief Inclusion & Diversity Officer for The Estée Lauder Companies, Marilu Marshall leverages her passion for inclusion & diversity (I&D) as a driving force in cultivating and embracing individual differences. She has developed many unique I&D initiatives that include hosting a Global I&D Summit attended by more than 80 global employees and sponsoring a Global I&D week to highlight the achievements of Employee Resource Groups (ERGs) in the I&D space. These initiatives are important to an overall program to create an inclusive environment across the enterprise and to raise awareness of inclusion and diversity as a value proposition.

Marshall attributes her passion for inclusion to her Cuban parents who taught her to value and appreciate differences of others. She embraces this philosophy as a leadership strength today. To drive I&D globally across The Estée Lauder Companies’ five business regions, Marshall oversees 22 ERGs around the world with a focus on business alignment projects, professional development and networking, and philanthropy. Her team also facilitates a global and local educational workshop series to raise awareness of the value of I&D.
