Kellogg earns diversity accolades
BATTLE CREEK, Mich. — Kellogg Company has once again been named one of the "40 Best Companies for Diversity" in 2012 by Black Enterprise magazine. The recognition reflects the company's ongoing commitment to diversity and inclusion and marks the sixth time Kellogg has been named to the list.
Kellogg recently announced its 13th consecutive year of growth in its U.S. supplier diversity program, surpassing the $350 million mark, and has experienced a nearly 6-fold increase in spending in the last 10 years. The program also helps to support local communities by working with more than 200 companies owned by women, people of color and veterans with disabilities.
"We're working to build a stronger Kellogg by fostering an inclusive culture that leverages diversity as a competitive advantage," said Mark King, chief diversity officer for Kellogg Company. "Along with our supplier diversity initiatives, we've also made significant strides in reaching that objective by embedding diversity and inclusion throughout all levels of our organization. We're honored to be recognized by Black Enterprise once again for these efforts."
