2014-2015 Kellogg's Diversity and Inclusion Annual Report

A MESSAGE FROM

OUR GLOBAL HEAD OF DIVERSITY AND INCLUSION

MARK KING

Welcome to the sixth edition of Features, Kellogg Company’s annual publication highlighting our diversity and inclusion (D&I) efforts and accomplishments.

At Kellogg, we are working to build a corporate culture that not only understands and values difference, but embraces it. A culture where employees recognize that diversity helps our business to grow and prosper. And a culture in which every employee can contribute meaningfully to the business while being true to their authentic selves.

In this edition, we’re proud to “feature” stories of progress such as the launch of our new Kapable Employee Resource Group, the evolution of our multicultural marketing efforts, and the success and expansion of our Executive Cross-Cultural Mentoring program, among many, many others.

These stories point to the headway we have made in building a diverse and inclusive culture at Kellogg locations around the globe. There is always room for improvement, of course, which is why I’m so appreciative of Kellogg leaders, people managers and individual contributors who are actively driving D&I forward.

I’m also grateful to my colleagues in the Office of Diversity and Inclusion for their tireless efforts to support and propel forward the good work going on throughout the organization. The goal of our D&I team is to help position diversity as a competitive advantage for Kellogg, and to make that happen in an inclusive environment. To do that, we work to embed D&I best practices into the company’s everyday way of doing business.

I’m truly proud of the progress our company has made, as well as of the commitment and determination of Kellogg employees to keep us moving forward on this journey.

Thank you for taking the time to read about our efforts. We welcome your feedback at diversity.inclusion@kellogg.com.

Sincerely,

MARK KING
