“Our commitment to diversity and inclusion in the workplace is having the right strategies in place to address recruitment, development, retention and engagement of an incoming workforce that will be more diverse in terms of traditional visible forms of diversity, as well as the invisible aspects. These may include a person’s geographical background, how they approach problem solving and form ideas, what cultures they have been exposed to, and many others. We celebrate differences and promote an environment in which we believe everyone’s unique skills contribute to our overall success.”

As Head of Diversity, Inclusion and Gender Balance with Nestle Purina PetCare Company, Annette C. Morris, is responsible for the development and execution of Nestle Purina’s diversity, inclusion and gender balance strategy.
