A commitment we take pride in

The people who use our products every day are as diverse as our world. The more we reflect them, the better we can understand their needs. That’s simply meeting expectations.

Inclusivity is where we go beyond them. Our employees are encouraged to bring their unique selves to work every day, and bring out the best in each other. Because when every skill is used and every voice heard, positive change can happen.

Everyone valued. Everyone included. Everyone performing at their peak™.

It’s who we are, it’s what we believe, and it’s how we operate—every day.

Advocates for diversity

People celebrating love

Every year in the US, we proudly celebrate the rich cultures of our world during Black History Month, Hispanic Heritage Month, Pride Week, and Diversity & Inclusion Week, to name a few. Our goal is to celebrate our people, delight more consumers, better solve problems, and ultimately grow as a company.

Challenging industry norms

Our team of passionate African Ancestry (AA) scientists, stylists, and dermatologists found emotional and historical connections behind AA hair not being accepted as mainstream in the beauty industry. The new Pantene Gold Series—designed specifically for AA hair—challenges that norm by celebrating strong AA women and their incredible hair.

Our aim is focused squarely on better understanding each other through respect, inclusion, and making life better inside and outside our walls.

The willingness to publicly discuss difficult issues of gender and racial bias sends a powerful message to our employees that their own experiences matter to us.

Diversity & inclusion in our workplace

It comes down to every person on our team committing to our mission. Here’s how we do it every day.

For the 4th year running, we recognized the outstanding work of P&G employees around the world who have progressed diversity and inclusion initiatives through innovation, value creation, and inspirational leadership.

We joined 400 other companies through the CEO Action for Diversity & Inclusion and more than 50 global leaders through the Catalyst CEO Champions for Change to advance the conversations in our organization.

We know the importance of diversity in the workplace. That's why we attract, hire, and keep diverse people on our team so that we can better understand our world and our consumers. To keep that talent here, we’re creating opportunities and investing in plans for hiring, retaining, and developing them—to the executive level.

For over 40 years, our Supplier Diversity program has been awarding contracts to women- and minority-owned businesses—including military vets, people with disabilities, and LGBT owners. When our Supply Network reflects the diversity of our consumers, employees, and stakeholders, our community thrives.

The CWLT is committed to the advancement of women—making sure that their skills and insights are well represented throughout our company, and at all levels of leadership. The team is actively involved in events and programs that promote mentoring, sponsorship, leadership development, and increasing representation of women at all levels.

P&G recognizes and respects the uniqueness and differences in employees, and leverages them to the fullest. The Company hires people from varied ethnic and cultural backgrounds with remarkably different talents, perspectives and life and career experiences. P&G Pakistan employees form a rich tapestry of individuals, in terms of gender, background, educational experiences and thinking styles. This is because for P&G, Diversity and Inclusion is a business strategy and a source of competitive advantage.

P&G promotes disability diversity in the workplace. The PWD group raises awareness about issues people with disabilities face and supports employees with disabled dependents. They’re also devoted to creating a more inclusive work environment for every employee, regardless of mental or physical limitations.

Each year the Company celebrates Diversity and Inclusion (D&I) Week to bring to life the mission of D&I, 'Everyone Valued, Everyone Included, Everyone performing at their peak'. D&I Week includes a host of trainings and guest speaker sessions on the importance of diversity as a critical enabler of innovation and productivity. D&I Week also gives employees the opportunity to showcase their talents and express their individuality. The highlight of D&I Week is the 'P&G's Got Talent' competition, showcasing the varied talents and skills of P&G people, from musicians and actors to poets, literati and artists.

If we continue to apply our diverse minds and diverse talent to tackle opportunities or challenges, we will continue to serve our consumers in ways that are meaningful to them.
