Swiss EmployeesTake Part in Diversity Week
[Diversity Week] brought awareness of diversity topics and helped to spark some really interesting discussions.
In March 2016, more than 60 Kellogg employees in Geneva, Switzerland, took part in Diversity Week, which featured unique events every day at lunchtime and explored the themes of leadership, different cultures and female employees’ experiences in the workplace.
Sponsored by the Women of Kellogg Employee Resource Group, Diversity Week included remarks by senior Kellogg executives, a panel discussion about female leadership at Kellogg, and a potluck lunch featuring culinary delights from cultures around the world. In addition, participants took part in a webinar called “Unconscious Bias and What to Do about It,” presented by Minjon Tholen, a training and development specialist from Cook Ross Consulting Firm.
Participants gave the whole event high marks. “Diversity Week really helped to emphasize that diversity matters to Kellogg,” said Julie M., Human Resources Director, Snacks, Kellogg Europe. “It also brought awareness of diversity topics and helped to spark some really interesting discussions. The feedback we got was excellent, and we definitely plan to do it again next year.”
