Our Commitment to Equity, Diversity and Inclusion
A Message from Our Chairman & CEO
Welcome to Features, Kellogg Company’s annual publication highlighting our Equity, Diversity and Inclusion (ED&I) efforts and accomplishments.
Kellogg is a company with heart and soul, driven by a diverse and inclusive community of passionate people who are making a difference throughout the world. Our visionary founder, W.K. Kellogg, instilled in us the understanding that doing good for society is a critical part of running a good business. That’s why we’ve always worked hard to make sure that our company and business practices deliver benefits to people, our communities and the planet.
Our company vision is a good and just world where people are not just fed but fulfilled. Our purpose is creating better days and a place at the table for everyone through our trusted food brands. Our strong focus on ED&I is paramount to achieving our success.
This year, Kellogg celebrates 115 years as a company. Throughout our history, we’ve held fast to the belief that our greatest strength lies in our many diverse and passionate colleagues across the globe. We continue to grow our business through our Deploy for Growth business strategy. Within this framework, people must be our competitive advantage. By empowering our employees to share their diverse perspectives, we can do our best work, be more creative and achieve our potential – which is good for all of us and good for business.
As you read the many stories in this Features report, you’ll see how ED&I is part of the fabric of who we are. Our incredible people around the world consistently demonstrate a passion for our K Values and for creating a culture of belonging where everyone has a place at the table. .
I’m proud that Kellogg is continually recognized for our ED&I efforts. Kellogg was named a Top 50 Company for Diversity by DiversityInc, and we achieved a perfect 100% score on the Human Rights Campaign’s Corporate Equality Index for the 11th year in a row. For all of us at Kellogg, ED&I is more than simply “the right thing to do.” ED&I is one of our founding principles and creates a competitive advantage for our company.
Thank you to our employees, our partners and to all who gather united around our Kellogg table to enjoy our beloved brands and products around the world.
Chairman and Chief Executive Officer
