Monsanto is a global modern agriculture company. We develop products and tools to help farmers around the world grow crops while using energy, water, and land more efficiently. We believe innovation has the potential to bring humanity’s needs in balance with the resources of our planet.
Integrity, respect, and transparency are core values, and acting as good corporate citizens in each country where we operate is at the foundation of our work. Creating an inclusive environment where employees of all genders, ethnicities, backgrounds and orientations feel welcome and able to contribute is at the heart of creating a Great Place to Work. Our more than 20,000 employees proudly reflect the society we live in and demonstrate the value of diverse thinking in bringing best in class agriculture solutions for the benefit of all.
Having an inclusive culture, people and business processes are a priority to success in our global market. Our emphasis on inclusion while continuing to keep our focus on diversity allows us to attract, develop, and retain a more diverse and representative talent base across demographics, culture and experiential backgrounds. Our business resource networks, supplier diversity program, University partnerships and scholarships, and targeted outreach programs are just a few of the ways we attract and support our employees.
Our people leaders have the ability to shape our culture, so we provide each of them with an Inclusion Index annually to drive improvement. 5,000 of our leaders around the globe have taken our unconscious bias training. Many are enrolling now in our breaking bias workshop, an advanced training module to improve their Inclusion Index scores.
We take great pride in the diversity of our company and the inclusive culture we continue to develop.
