Read Our Diversity, Equity, & Inclusion Vision Statement

Provide an inclusive workplace built on respect and dignity that leverages individual differences and generates equal opportunities for everyone and enables us to win with consumers. We achieve this by: 

  • Creating a culture of support and empowerment through our employee-led engagement groups, inclusive hiring practices, and company-wide learning and development programs 

  • Facilitating unconscious bias training, implementing workplace flexibility policies, and actively removing constraints that limit employees of diverse backgrounds to inspire innovation 

What We Offer

As individual leaders and as a group, we continue to put diversity, equity, and inclusion at the center of our operations and share a commitment to keep building a culture that embraces all. We know that our employees are what makes our Nestlé community so special. We also know that without diverse employees, diverse suppliers and diverse perspectives—we cannot serve our consumers, customers and communities, and meet the full, powerful potential of our Nestlé’s U.S. market. While many of our programs are shared by our operating companies, each of them have something unique to offer.


To promote the recruitment, development, and retention of diverse talent throughout the organization.


To increase awareness, appreciation and understanding of diversity and inclusion throughout the organization.


To build a bigger footprint and cultivate relationships in the communities in which we live and work.


To leverage diversity to enhance our ability to anticipate and meet the changing needs of our customers and consumers in the marketplace.

Diversity, Equity, & Inclusion Initiatives
At Nestlé USA, Our Commitment Goes Beyond Representation and Partnerships.

We know that in order to contribute to a healthier future for everyone, we must have a workforce that represents our customers. Some of our recent work includes: Achieving 1:1 pay equity for women and underrepresented minorities and implementing a progressive parental leave policy; Donating 1.75 million to The National Urban League and other organizations; Writing an open letter to congress offering strong support for the Equality Act.

Care is our only requirement. With a history as innovative as ours, it’s clear our company relies on the unique points of view of our employees.

Our diverse team is made up of 90 different nationalities. But no matter the role, we focus more on who you are than where you’re from. Because to us, caring about our work is your most important qualification. So, if you’re driven by quality, are excited to try new ideas, and never hide what you care about, you will be a perfect fit on any of our teams. 

Balance is important when it comes to coffee flavors – and our business. While our global male/female balance is 43/57, we are continually striving to reflect that same balance in our senior positions. 

Beyond management, we seek to strengthen the voice of women in every area we are a part of. Their view can even help us succeed in unexpected ways. For example, in coffee field operations, we have learned that the presence of female agronomists is key for the participation of women farmers in training. Today, women agronomists at our suppliers comprise 30% of our global field workforce

Being a part of the DE&I community within Nestlé has helped me embrace and appreciate diversity in the workplace. It’s impactful initiatives have created a sense of representation, community, and equity that has fostered inclusivity of diverse cultures.

Nestlé’s environment has helped me to be my complete self at work. As a person with a disability that is both visible and invisible, it can make it hard to feel seen for myself or to be myself every single day. Nestlé gave me the platform to teach not only my co-workers, but the company about my story and has helped to bring my whole self to work day in and day out. It’s a really great feeling!

At Nestlé, we have the fantastic chance to work with so many different amazing people, from amazing cultures, and one of a kind backgrounds! This is all available to us in a quick call with your peer on the other side of the world, during a relocation or a mission, and at the coffee station in the office. I’ve learned different points of view at Nestlé because of all the different teams I’ve had a chance to work with.

At work, I don’t feel like I need to leave who I am or what I’m going through checked at the door. We are cultivating a workplace that understands our lives affect our jobs.
