Diversity & inclusion


Integral to our culture

Diversity & inclusion is our everyday reality. We respect and
encourage uniqueness and potential regardless of your race, gender,
culture, sexual orientation or disability.

Diversity in everyday life

We promote diversity & inclusion through our culture, our work in society and with innovation.

We build an inclusive culture leveraging the differences of our employees
We're inclusive in the way we act and engage with society and stakeholders
We think about the needs of diverse consumers and customers when we make and distribute our products

We recruit people who respect our values, we provide equal opportunities for all, and we protect
everyone's privacy. We do not tolerate any form of harassment or discrimination. Our aim is to create
workplaces where everyone feels included and able to bring their whole selves to work. This
commitment starts at recruitment and continues to the end of the working relationship. Each of our
markets has a diversity & inclusion action plan designed to provide equal opportunities for everyone
to contribute, grow and and feel valued.

Taking action worldwide

Globally, Nestlé efforts are centered in four focus areas within diversity & inclusion: gender balance,
people with disabilities, LGBT+ community and race & ethnicity.

We have been a member of the United Nations Global Compact since 2001. Through our Gender Balance Acceleration Plan, we aim to increase the proportion of women in our top 200 senior executive positions to 30% by 2022.

People with disabilities

Through membership of the ILO Global Business and Disability Network we promote the inclusion of people with disabilities across our global workforce. In 2020, we signed The Valuable 500 commitment to put disability inclusion on our leadership agenda.

Race and ethnicity

Nestlé has advanced racial and ethnic inclusion for a long time. Today, more than 85% of management committee positions in the countries we operate are held by local employees who are truly representative of the communities we serve. Nestlé was one of the founding members of the World Economic Forum's Partnering for Racial Justice in Business initiative.

I have loved every minute of working at Nestlé. From the moment I started, I knew I had found an excellent place to work. Am loving the camaraderie formed with my co-workers who exhibit a strong drive to accomplish their daily goals. The challenges I have faced have allowed me to acquire new skills to help advance my career.

I joined Nestlé under the “Hai Tum Pae Yakeen” program that is for people with disabilities. Despite the stereotypes surrounding people with disabilities, I got the opportunity to work with Nestlé in the supply chain department.​ ​ Joining Nestlé was a dream come true. My favorite thing about working here are the opportunities the company has given me to grow. They have seen my potential and encouraged me to develop it by trusting me with increased responsibility and letting me own tasks and projects. Since I have joined it has been a tremendous experience of personal and professional growth.

Nestlé brings out the best in me. I am learning and growing everyday by being a part of this wonderful team. Everyone is very supportive, and the organizational culture nurtures me through empowerment.
