“At Mars, our family-owned business operating ethos is based on our Five Principles – Quality, Efficiency, Mutuality, Responsibility and Freedom. This allows and at the same time obliges us to think and act differently towards our Associates, our world-famous brands and our business portfolio. Diversity for us has been and will continue to be a priority to ensure we attract and retain highly engaged and talented Associates that help us to deliver growth we are proud of. We are excited about the opportunities to closely partner with LEAD on further advancing our diversity agenda and learn from and exchange with others in our industry.“

“ “We are inspired by the LEAD mission because it is clearly supported by a wealth of research proving that the business case for diversity and inclusion in the workplace is irrefutable. It is no coincidence that an inherently diverse workforce leads to better financial and business performance, better reputation, better consumer connection and market share, better innovation and better and broader talent. This deserves our dedicated focus and attention” ”
