Up the ranks: Clorox's Chief Diversity & Social Impact Officer


In this role, Bonelli-Moore will be responsible for driving the organisation's ongoing inclusion, diversity, equity & allyship (IDEA) initiatives, as well as engaging a broad set of stakeholders to further drive systemic and lasting change.

Consumer & professional products company Clorox has appointed Shanique Bonelli-Moore as its Chief Diversity & Social Impact Officer. Effective 10 July 2022 (Sunday), Bonelli-Moore will join the Clorox Executive Committee, sit on the people & leadership team, and report directly to Linda Rendle, Chief Executive Officer, Clorox.

In this role, Bonelli-Moore will be responsible for driving the organisation's ongoing inclusion, diversity, equity & allyship (IDEA) initiatives, as well as engaging a broad set of stakeholders – from functional task forces, employee resource groups (ERGs), and international committees – to further drive systemic and lasting change

In a statement, Rendle shared that the appointment (and role) is crucial, as "IDEA is central" to Clorox's IGNITE strategy and goal of being a people-centered, purpose-driven company where every member of the team is actively creating an inclusive culture. "This is more important than ever as we look to grow by building brands that matter, and serving more people around the world," she added.

On top of the aforementioned responsibilities, Bonelli-Moore will also be leading the strategy and execution of Clorox's foundation such as charitable giving and employee community engagement programmes, which include strategic partnerships and community engagement to foster healthy and inclusive communities and achieve global impact objectives. 

As an individual, Bonelli-Moore has years of experience working in the social impact and inclusion & diversity space. She joins Clorox from United Talent Agency (UTA), where she was the Executive Director of Inclusion. Prior to that, Bonelli-Moore held management positions at BuzzFeed, Anheuser-Busch InBev, NBCUniversal, and GE, where she focused on corporate communications, as well as diversity, inclusion & belonging.

Part of Bonelli-Moore's career highlights, she spearheaded the design of significant global DE&I learning & development programmes, pushed industry-leading changes in wage investments, and created employee inclusion groups, while working alongside the UTA Foundation to direct a US$1mn donation to social justice causes and elevating senior leaders of colour to the board of directors and partnership at UTA.

"A business and growth-oriented leader, she is committed to uniting employees, bridging interests and identities, fostering career development and enhancing global community building," Rendle shared. "I’m excited to see how her fresh perspectives on inclusion, diversity, equity, and allyship, as well as social impact, will enable us to build an even more people-centered, purpose-driven culture at Clorox."
