A message from Joy Ho, General Manager of Unilever Japan

Joy Ho was appointed as the president of Unilever Japan Customer Marketing in July, 2022, and became the first female and open lesbian president in Unilever Japan’s history. Joy was born in Taiwan and became aware of her sexuality as she grew up, but she was not 100% coming out from the closet for years. In 2015, after meeting her wife, Joy fully came out as a lesbian. Knowing that LGBTQI+ children are often isolated from the rest of society, she wanted to tell the children that they have a bright future where they can live their lives as true selves. She returned to Unilever in 2017 and has been speaking up for unvoiced. “Every one of us is made with a purpose. Businesses and the world can be colorful and powerful when each one of us can embrace our true self and live out our purpose” says Joy.
