Estée Lauder has made an initial $1MM investment into the ELEL Fund which will support mission-aligned organizations. Vital Voices, a global nonprofit that invests in women leaders, has been selected as the inaugural program partner of the ELEL Fund, with the program commencing in July 2022. Additional grants by the ELEL Fund will be announced in the coming year.
Global Leadership and Gender Report by Estée Lauder
To gain a deeper understanding of perceptions of leadership and gender bias around the world, the Estée Lauder brand commissioned Glocalities, an international market research agency, for a global study of more than 5,700 men and women across 11 countries. The research revealed that whilst there are still prevalent gender biases and stereotypes when it comes to leadership, both men and women value the same qualities in a leader - reliability, integrity and dedication - which are not attached to gender. However, while leadership qualities such as strength and determination are equally valued by both men and women they are more strongly associated with men. The study reveals the roadblocks and solutions for advancing gender-inclusive leadership.
Estée Lauder’s Legacy
As one of the leading prestige beauty brands in the world, Estée Lauder continues to be inspired by its founder, Mrs. Estée Lauder, and her belief in a woman’s infinite possibilities. The ELEL Fund will reinforce the brand’s commitment to women’s advancement by addressing some of the gender-based biases uncovered in the research and shifting the perception of leadership.
“The 75-year legacy of the Estée Lauder brand shows what one visionary woman can achieve,” said Stéphane de La Faverie, Group President, The Estée Lauder Companies and Global Brand President, Estée Lauder & AERIN Beauty. “Through the work of the Estée Lauder Emerging Leaders Fund and its program partners, we will champion women to contribute and lead in their workplaces and communities. We want to redefine what it means to be a leader and what it takes to lead. We want to see more women like Mrs. Estée Lauder in the world.”
The VV Visionaries Leadership Program in partnership with the ELEL Fund
The Estée Lauder Emerging Leaders Fund selected Vital Voices, a global nonprofit that invests in women leaders who are taking on the world’s greatest challenges, as its first official program partner and grant recipient. With the shared mission of advancing women and redefining leadership, the ELEL Fund and Vital Voices have built a custom online and offline leadership development program for emerging leaders globally. Program participants will join the Vital Voices community of over 20,000 women across 184 countries, which includes Estée Lauder Global Changemaker, Amanda Gorman. Applications are now open for the first and second cohort and can be accessed at www.vitalvoices.org/program/visionaries.
“At Vital Voices we have seen that women lead differently, and that difference is precisely what our world needs,” said Alyse Nelson, Vital Voices President and CEO. “Our partnership with the Estée Lauder Emerging Leaders Fund will identify emerging leaders with a bold vision for positive change and provide them with the skills, network and resources they need to make that vision a reality.”
