In Conversation with Leena Nair - Leading With Purpose And Humanity.

Season 5: Episode 14

In this short episode before Christmas, our host Lady Mariéme Jamme spoke to Leena Nair, the first female, first Asian, youngest ever Chief Human Resources Officer of Unilever. She became Chanel’s New Global Chief Executive Officer and will start in her new role in 2022. She worked for 30 years at Unilever and will take the reins at the 112-year-old fashion house founded by Coco Chanel. Leena shared the challenges she had during Covid19. She lost her mother, who was her greatest strength. Leena spoke to the Kakuma Refugee Girls in Kenya before leaving her role at Unilever. She supported iamtheCODE during her tenure at Unilever, and we are truly grateful. Leena told the girls to support each other as sisterhoods matter.
