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.
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.
