Diversity, Equity, & Inclusion at Nestlé Purina

Dare to Make Every Day Better.

We Stand Taller because we dare to make every day better. To give it our all. To put our name on the work we do. Doing the right things right. Making our work matter. Why? Because we care. We're inspired by the words of our founder, William H. Danforth, who believed that integrity, passion, expertise and performance are the keys to Standing Taller and making good lives better. Today, we carry on the legacy, passionately enriching the lives of pets and the people who love them. #WeStandTaller, do you?

Diversity, Equity, & Inclusion: A Core Focus

What does "diversity, equity, & inclusion" mean to you? If we asked this question to several people at Purina, we'd get a different answer from each person. We choose to celebrate that. Our core focus as an organization is how we can translate the "24 dimensions of diversity" into significant impact we have on our workforce, culture, community and marketplace. By sharing the celebration of our differences, we make a bigger difference in this world. Working together, #WeStandTaller.

24 Dimensions of Diversity

The Nestlé Purina Tree of Inclusion is much more than what we see above the surface. We are all a complex mixture of roots and blossoms that represent life experiences and worldviews. It’s in the roots, branches, and leaves where we find commonalities and differences worth exploring. Our talents, skills, and experiences give visible life to the whole tree. Just look up and see all of us.

Each of us plays a part in helping the company meet and exceed our expectations for becoming the most welcoming environment for our associates, contractors, customers, consumers, and guests. So, together we celebrate what we’ve done and challenge ourselves for what’s next.

“As I walk the corridors of campus, I am reminded that some people may see the world differently than I do. It reminds me that rainbows have more than one color. That’s what makes it a rainbow. That’s what makes us who we are.”

“Often, I take note of the variety of associates that call Nestlé Purina home...different nationalities, genders, orientations, worldviews. Then I leave the office with my dog in tow. Both of us wagging our proverbial tails."
