Our people are diverse
Diversity and inclusion are at the heart of our values and our growth strategy and play an important part in our company’s success.
We leverage the remarkable diversity of people across the world to achieve our purpose of refreshing the world and making a difference.
For The Coca-Cola Company, creating a diverse workforce and an inclusive workplace is a strategic business priority that fosters greater creativity, innovation and connection to the communities we serve.
As Lori George Billinglsey, The Coca-Cola Company’s Chief Diversity and Inclusion Officer, says:
“We get the best results when everyone has a seat at the table…Coca-Cola has earned a reputation, through its marketing and more, as one of the world’s most inclusive brands. Does this mean we have an even greater responsibility as a company to ‘walk the talk’ as a champion of diversity and inclusion both inside and outside our system?
Yes, we absolutely do. We must be a champion for our business, our people and our communities. Our partners and suppliers look to us to be a vocal and active leader in the diversity and inclusion space, and we’re often recognized externally in surveys and awards as a company that’s best in class when it comes to diversity policies and practices.”
Our company has identified a set of growth behaviors to serve as a foundation of the culture we hope to build. “Inclusive” is one of these growth behaviors. So it’s front and center, which shows inclusion is a key priority for our business and that everyone is expected to operate with an inclusive mindset.
Our aspiration is not only to mirror the diversity of the communities where we operate, but also to lead and advocate for a better shared future.
