At Kraft Foods, no matter what the occasion, we take food to heart. Our higher purpose, Make Today Delicious, is about much more than the products we make. It defines us, unites us, and inspires us to make a delicious difference in our company, in our communities and in our world.

Commitment to diversity

Over the years, our organization has truly become a diverse community. Our employees represent a broad base of cultures and abilities, and our client base is increasingly diverse, too. It’s important to remember that diversity touches much more than race, gender, or country of origin – it also encompasses diversity of generations, thought, sexual orientation and experience. Including these different perspectives within a respectful culture allows us to improve ourselves and those around us, increase our productivity and our ability to be innovative, as well as enhance our human potential.

We joined Pride at Work Canada as a Corporate Partner in the fall of 2009. Since then our partnership has given us access to a network of experts that can help us achieve our goal of leveraging individual differences to continue making Kraft a great place to work.

Vision for the future

Inclusion is about leveraging diversity, respecting the individual and having a thirst to explore and understand what others bring to our business. This focus generates the innovation that brings Kraft Canada sustained growth, competitive advantage and industry leadership. We see Pride at Work Canada as a critical partner in this growth focus.

At Kraft Canada, our ability to create a culture where differences are respected helps ensure our success and ability to grow as an organization. We strongly believe that diversity and inclusion is not a “program” but rather a way of being. It is something that all employees have collective ownership of, and together we are stewards and champions of an open and inclusive culture. In support of this, Pride at Work has helped us recognize the value of allies to the LGBT community, as partners in helping people have the freedom to be who they are and bring their whole selves to work.
