WHY IT’S ON THE LIST
Kellogg Company earns a spot on the list for the third year in a row, making significant diversity-and-inclusion progress under the leadership of Chairman, President and CEO John Bryant, who chairs the executive diversity council, and Global Head, Diversity & Inclusion Mark King.
Since taking charge at Kellogg three years ago, Bryant has been a visible supporter of diversity and inclusion, one who gets a perfect score on our CEO checklist: He signs off on executive compensation tied to diversity goals, meets quarterly with employee resource groups, has a senior-advisory position at a multicultural nonprofit, and has a strong quote about diversity and inclusion on the corporate website.
The company has made considerable progress with the use of its employee resource groups for talent development, the expansion of its cross-cultural mentoring program, and a series of initiatives focusing on talent opportunities for people from underrepresented groups. Kellogg now has seven resource groups with 37 chapters and 11 diversity councils, including Women in CLS (Customer & Logistic Services) and Women in Supply Chain.
