Guided by our purpose and values, we’re proud of the way we support and care for each other, our communities, and the customers and consumers we serve.

Prioritizing inclusion and diversity

We’re building a company where everyone can be real, and feel safe, valued, and supported to do their best work. Our I&D strategy is designed to build capabilities to drive change, strengthen ally networks and communities through advocacy, and ensure accountability and transparency around our progress.


To build our capabilities, we’re increasing I&D learning opportunities and standardizing key processes throughout the company. In fiscal 2022, 95% of managers completed I&D learning and development opportunities focused on improving collaboration through inclusive behaviors.

We enhanced our talent acquisition processes to reach more diverse talent so we can hire the best candidate for the job.
