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 work with people who respect our values, provide equal opportunities for all, and protect everyone's privacy. We do not tolerate any form of harassment or discrimination. We aim to create an inclusive workplace 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. We have a diversity & inclusion action plan designed to provide equal opportunities for everyone to contribute, grow 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.

Gender Balance

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

Gendre balance

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 represent the communities we serve. Nestlé was one of the founding members of the World Economic Forum's Partnering for Racial Justice in Business initiative.


At Nestle, when we speak about inclusion, that means being consistent and making it part of our culture. This would mean that people managers, not just HR, can feel comfortable talking about and dealing with issues or events related to sexual orientation and gender identification. Employees like me are recognized through integration and recognition of same sex couples or families with covered Medical Benefits, Parental Support, and Employee Programs.

It’s encouraging to feel valued and welcomed in an environment filled with opportunities for everyone. Nestle provides level-playing field for anyone across the gender spectrum. #BeAForceForGood

At the root of everything that Nestlé does is respect. As part of the LGBTQ+ community, I’m proud to work for a company that recognizes the diversity of its people and upholds inclusivity in the workplace. Our inclusive dependents medical program and gender-neutral parental support ensure that we can focus at work because our families – whatever ours looks like – are protected. Our flexible work arrangements allow us to balance our responsibilities when we need to.
