Diversity is a business strategy for P&G. It’s an intentional choice that creates sustainable competitive advantage. It is implicit in P&G’s Purpose, Values and Principles.
We simply cannot create brands and products to improve the lives of the world’s consumers unless we deeply understand and value the diversity of their needs and aspirations.
We believe the best way to do this is to have a workforce that reflects the markets and consumers we serve and to fully value and leverage all their experiences, insights and talents. That’s what P&G’s Corporate Diversity strategy is: "Everyone valued, Everyone included, Everyone performing at their peak". Click here to learn more about Diversity & Inclusion at P&G
