Transforming D&I Councils into Task Forces
Our existing D&I Councils will become a Task Force at every Chobani location. They will lead internal engagement, education, and awareness around diversity and inclusion, informing tangible actions we are taking as a company to further equity through hiring, business operations, and advocacy.
We are holding not only our executive leadership team accountable, but also their direct reports, and their direct reports. D&I goals and objectives will be tied to the annual performance evaluations of all managers so that the spirit of D&I at Chobani permeates our entire company.
We are making meaningful monetary investments in our D&I Recruiting Committee and expanding our diversity in hiring practices to bring more minority and female candidates to managerial roles at the company.
Disseminating Demographic Data
Leadership will receive demographic data of their departments in an effort to set goals and move toward creating a workforce that reflects our core values and the communities we call home. This will, in turn, give leadership a better grasp of the demographic composition of their teams and show us where greater representation is possible.
We are establishing our first-ever, fully paid, company-wide internship program, dedicated to underrepresented groups, specifically young adults of color with a focus on Black youth.
As part of our ongoing work to help our employees grow in their careers, we're creating career development programs that help more underrepresented employees from our plants grow into managerial and leadership roles.
Awareness and Education
We are expanding our company-wide Respect in the Workplace training to include awareness and education on anti-racism and unconscious bias, with the help of external experts.
Supply Chain for Change
We’re expanding our Supplier Code of Conduct to ensure our suppliers, advisors, and other outside partners prioritize diversity as we do and are representative of the communities we serve and employ.
Employee Donation Match Program
From May 25, 2020, through the end of June, our employee match program doubles monetary donations from our Chobani Family. To date, together, we have made donations to the Equal Justice Initiative, the King Center, the NAACP Legal Defense Fund. We’ve also separately donated to the Marsha P. Johnson Institute and Building Beats.
