Ingredion Commits to Achieving Gender Parity by 2030

Global ingredient solutions provider Ingredion Incorporated announced this week that it has joined the Paradigm for Parity coalition and is pledging its commitment to achieving gender parity in corporate leadership roles by 2030. 

“We are proud to partner with the Paradigm for Parity movement and work toward addressing gender imbalances prevalent in corporate leadership positions,” said Jim Zallie, Ingredion’s president and chief executive officer. “We are committed to supporting change through implementing the 5-Point Paradigm for Parity Action Plan, which lays out proactive steps for companies to take to eliminate workplace inequality. We look forward to working with the coalition and the other companies that have joined the movement to accelerate the pace to achieving gender parity.”

The action plan includes:

-       Minimizing and eliminating unconscious bias in the workplace;

-       Significantly increasing the number of women in senior operating roles, with the near-term goal of at least 30 percent representation in all leadership groups;

-       Measuring targets and maintaining accountability by providing regular progress reports;

-       Basing career progress on business results and performance, rather than physical presence in the office; and

-       Providing sponsors, not just mentors, to women well positioned for long term success.

“At Ingredion, we remain focused on developing, nurturing, and championing the best female talent in the world—groundbreaking women who are transforming the food and ingredient solutions industry today and well into the future. We are taking actions to increase female representation at leadership levels, and we are addressing gender bias head-on,” added Elizabeth Adefioye, Ingredion’s senior vice president and chief human resources officer.
