Diversity & Inclusion

A multicultural group of 3 women and 2 men in the office

Integral to our culture

Diversity & inclusion is our everyday reality. We respect and encourage uniqueness and potential regardless of your race, gender, culture, sexual orientation or disability.

Diversity in everyday life

We promote diversity & inclusion through our culture, our work in society and with innovation.



We build an inclusive culture leveraging the differences of our employees



We're inclusive in the way we act and engage with society and stakeholders



We think about the needs of diverse consumers and customers when we make and distribute our products

We recruit people who respect our values, we provide equal opportunities for all, and we protect everyone's privacy. We do not tolerate any form of harassment or discrimination. Our aim is to create workplaces where everyone feels included and able to bring their whole selves to work. This commitment starts at recruitment and continues to the end of the working relationship. Each of our markets has a diversity & inclusion action plan designed to provide equal opportunities for everyone to contribute, grow and and feel valued.

Taking action worldwide

Globally, Nestlé efforts are centered in four focus areas within diversity & inclusion: gender balance, people with disabilities, LGBT+ community and race & ethnicity.

Gender balance

We have been a member of the United Nations Global Compact since 2001. Through our Gender Balance Acceleration Plan, we aim to increase the proportion of women in our top 200 senior executive positions to 30% by 2022.

Gender Balance

People with disabilities

Through membership of the ILO Global Business and Disability Network we promote the inclusion of people with disabilities across our global workforce. In 2020, we signed The Valuable 500 commitment to put disability inclusion on our leadership agenda.


Race and ethnicity

Nestlé has advanced racial and ethnic inclusion for a long time. Today, more than 85% of management committee positions in the countries we operate are held by local employees who are truly representative of the communities we serve. Nestlé was one of the founding members of the World Economic Forum's Partnering for Racial Justice in Business initiative.

Race and ethnicity

It has been a pleasure and honor for me to have an opportunity to work in Nestlé. Among many of the reasons why I love working here is that the company continuously trains you to be the most skillful person on the Job and very competitive in the market.
