Mita Mallick is Change Maker at Unilever NA

As the Head of Diversity, Employer Brand and Cross Cultural Marketing for Unilever North America, Mita Mallick is known as a change maker, challenging the status quo to improve opportunities for diverse people. Under her leadership, Unilever has been recognized for a number of achievements, including being named for the first time in 2017 a Top Ten Company for Working Mothers by Working Mother Media. These results were produced as a result of a series of actions that include adding a measuring system for talent placement, transforming the women's network GALvanize to increase involvement, offering flexible work arrangements, and adding benefits and leave options to support parental needs.

To achieve a cultural transformation, Mallick first assessed the employee engagement, development, and progressive company policies in conjunction with listening to employees express their ideas and needs. Using analytics and insights, managers are able to develop a strong understanding of their workforce so they can support employees at every life stage. Mallick deeply believes that employees should feel free to voice their opinions and to bring their full selves to work.
