Commitment to Racial Equity, Diversity and Inclusion
The W.K. Kellogg Foundation has a long-standing and ongoing commitment to diversity, inclusion and equity – both internally through our work environment and externally through our programming. Under our strategic framework, we have identified the active pursuit of racial equity, by embracing healing efforts and eradicating structural racism, as an explicit approach of our programming. We value differences among individuals across multiple dimensions including, but not limited to, race, ethnicity, age, gender, sexual orientation, gender identity and expression, physical ability, religion and socioeconomic status. We believe that bringing together staff and other partners with differing backgrounds and life experiences will enhance our ability to increase opportunities for all families and children to succeed. Building an inclusionary organizational culture means that not only do we count people, but that people count. And building a culture of equitable relationships means not only do people count, people feel like they belong. This is the aspiration of the W.K. Kellogg Foundation.
The W.K. Kellogg Foundation is committed to ensuring all employees and their families thrive. We are the proud recipients of the 2015 and 2019 Michigan Governor’s Fitness Award and the 2019 Michigan Breastfeeding Network Gold Breastfeeding-Friendly Award. Our array of benefits supports the health, well-being and development of every staff person, including competitive salaries, affordable medical and dental plan options, comprehensive coverage for disability and life insurance, generous leave for new mothers and families, broad retirement benefits, individualized career development plans, reimbursement for education and opportunity for flexible work schedules.
