Kellogg Co. Honored by Black Enterprise MagazinePublished by admin on August 31 2012
Kellogg Co. has been named one of the “40 Best Companies for Diversity” in 2012 by Black Enterprise magazine. The recognition reflects the company’s ongoing commitment to diversity and inclusion and marks the sixth time Kellogg has been named to the list.
Featured in the publication’s July issue, this year’s Black Enterprise editorial accompanying its “40 Best Companies” list spotlights supplier diversity initiatives. Kellogg recently announced its 13th consecutive year of growth in its U.S. supplier diversity program, surpassing the $350 million mark, and has experienced a nearly six-fold increase in spending in the last 10 years. The program also helps to support local communities by working with more than 200 companies owned by women, people of color and veterans with disabilities.
Black Enterprisefirst published its “Top 40” list in 2005. Companies named to the list are evaluated on a variety of diversity indicators and whether those elements extend throughout the company.
