This week, P&G was both honored and humbled to be included in Working Mother Magazine’s 2013 Best Companies for Multicultural Women for the third consecutive year.
Now in its tenth year, Working Mother’s Best Companies for Multicultural Women is part of Working Mother Media’s Research Initiative, with rankings based upon a company’s focus on hiring, attrition and promotion, recruitment, retention and advancement programs and company culture.
At the 2013 Multicultural Women’s National Conference on July 23, Robin Bearden, P&G General Manager, Product Supply Human Resources, accepted the award on the Company’s behalf (shown at right in photo). “It is especially meaningful to be recognized by an organization like Working Mother Media for all the work we have done to advance multicultural women over the years.”
Our commitment to championing diversity has spanned more than a century and continues to grow. As a Company, we are proud of the investments we are making in the future of women everywhere – from employees to consumers. P&G’s internal affinity groups help employees feel valued and included so they can perform at their peak. Externally, ethnic marketing programs like My Black is Beautiful and Orgullosa ensure we’re connected with our consumers.
William Gipson, P&G Chief Diversity Officer, has said, “In order to win with all consumers, we must win with all employees. Winning means being respectful of all employees irrespective of race, gender, color, religion, national origin, age, sexual orientation, gender identity or expression, disability or any other non-job related personal characteristic.”
Fostering a culture of inclusion is part of P&G’s growth strategy and our Company DNA. We’re honored to be recognized by Working Mother and deeply proud of the multicultural women working at P&G.
