Equity, inclusion and representation

Through bold leadership, and we use our scale and expertise to improve equity in food access, education and representation.

Respecting all dimensions of diversity

From creating our first network more than 25 years ago to our Courageous Conversations that’s been going strong since 2016, we’ve cultivated employee groups to support the many aspects of diversity — gender, race, sexual orientation, ability, backgrounds and beliefs.

We advocate for advancing equity and inclusion both within and outside our workplace. And while we recognize there’s still a lot of work to do, we’re committed to continue building on our legacy of action:

  • Creating strong employee networks, the first was established more than 25 years ago, that allow our employee communities to have space to connect, process, react and grow:
    • Asian Leader Network
    • Betty’s Family
    • Black Champions Network
    • The Disability Network
    • The Familia Network
    • Veterans Network
    • Women’s Leadership Network

  • Tackling challenging topics with openness and authenticity for more than five years, through Courageous Conversations program
  • Using our allyship framework to help others begin and continue their journey as allies with practical solutions
  • Using a library of more than 300 inclusion topics at the beginning of meetings to foster discussion, build empathy and increase understanding
  • Creating a culture in which employees can address inclusion issues with openness and honesty
