Embracing the power of different at HRC in Philadelphia

By: Caleb Kearney, Lead of OPEN at Campbell


Seek the power of different—it’s one of our company values that’s hard-wired into Campbell’s culture and it’s something I champion every day here at work.


Members and friends of OPEN, our LGBTQ employee group, attended the 2018 Human Rights Campaign (HRC) Gala in Philadelphia this past weekend. Each year, we attend the gala in celebration of earning a score of 100% on the HRC’s Corporate Equality Index and as visible representation of the company’s commitment to equality through our values.

The gala included a reflection of issues facing the LGBTQ community over the past and how – with the support of members and sponsors such as Campbell – the HRC has been able to continue to advance their vision of ensuring that LGBTQ people are embraced as full members of society at home, work and in every community. They are the largest civil rights organization working to achieve equality for LGBTQ Americans.


I was honored to spend the evening this year with our leaders and advocates for diversity and inclusion in the workplace!
