DIVERSITY & INCLUSION
Diversity and inclusion are vital to the corporate culture at ConAgra, incorporating a broad range of personal attributes and characteristics such as race, age, gender, cultural background, sexual orientation, personal experiences and style.
More than simply the “right thing to do”… diversity at ConAgra is the way to success. Having a diverse culture brings to the company a wide variety of perspectives and talents that strengthen its ability to better serve both customers and consumers. By creating an inclusive culture that leverages diversity, ConAgra empowers individuals in the organization to grow to their fullest potential.
ConAgra has built a strong business case for diversity and inclusion, which has enabled the company to create a culture that attracts, retains and engages employees from all walks of life. Believing that workforce diversity enables stronger relationships in the community, the marketplace and with stakeholders, the ConAgra operates and sponsors the Diversity and Inclusion Leadership Council— a group of senior executives who provide guidance, support and sponsorship of diversity initiatives.
Fundamental to building a diverse and inclusive culture are the ConAgra Employee Resource Networks (ERNs), which are a way for ConAgra Foods employees of similar and differing cultures, backgrounds, and lifestyles to promote inclusion across the company, advance business objectives and enhance members’ personal and professional growth through networking and mentoring.
Currently there are six ERNS with hundreds of members throughout the company including the ConAgra Black Employee Network, Women’s Leadership Council, ConAgra Asian Network, ConAgra Latino Network, ConAgra Young Professional Network and Illuminations (Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender and Allies).
