The Value of Employee Diversity

As a global company, our people come from increasingly diverse backgrounds and perspectives - which helps us cultivate fresh thinking and refine our understanding of the different consumers who use our products. This diversity of talent brings bold, unexpected thinking. Better insights. Better debate. And better solutions.

Our perspective on diversity means that we honor and respect your perspectives. It's important to know that your input here is truly valued. Ultimately, your input is reflected in the way we operate and in the innovative brands and solutions we bring to market. Valuing diversity and building an inclusive culture makes a better place for people to work and is better for business as well.

One way we support an inclusive culture is through our employee resource groups. These groups support career development for members, provide social and volunteer opportunities for employees and offer input on business programs. Members of these groups are often tapped to participate on projects to bring a full range of experiences and viewpoints into everything we do. Thanks to these groups and their on-campus activities, the lives and perspectives of all our employees are broadened and enlightened. Current groups include:
