Diversity, Equity, & Inclusion at Nestlé Purina
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?

24 Dimensions of Diversity

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.
