A commitment we take pride in
The people who use our products every day are as diverse as our world. The more we reflect them, the better we can understand their needs. That’s simply meeting expectations.
Inclusivity is where we go beyond them. Our employees are encouraged to bring their unique selves to work every day, and bring out the best in each other. Because when every skill is used and every voice heard, positive change can happen.
Everyone valued. Everyone included. Everyone performing at their peak™.
It’s who we are, it’s what we believe, and it’s how we operate — every day.

Advocates for diversity
Every year in Canada, we proudly celebrate the rich cultures of our world during Lunar New Year, Black History Month, Pride Week, and Diversity & Inclusion Week, to name a few. Our goal is to celebrate our people, delight more consumers, better solve problems, and ultimately grow as a company.
Challenging industry norms
Our team of passionate African Ancestry (AA) scientists, stylists, and dermatologists found emotional and historical connections behind AA hair not being accepted as mainstream in the beauty industry. The new Pantene Gold Series—designed specifically for AA hair—challenges that norm by celebrating strong AA women and their incredible hair.
Supporting pride around the world
We are against any kind of discrimination and we support diversity in the workplace. Therefore, we’re proud to have Gay, Ally, Bisexual, Lesbian and Transgender (GABLE) organizations in Canada and 42 other countries with more than 5,000 members. In 2017 and 2018, we participated in the Pride Parade in Toronto with a #CrestSmileWithPride campaign. But we don’t stop at Pride Week—watch how we support P&G employees every day.
Our aim is focused squarely on better understanding each other through respect, inclusion, and making life better inside and outside our walls.
The willingness to publicly discuss difficult issues of gender and racial bias sends a powerful message to our employees that their own experiences matter to us.
Diversity & inclusion in our workplace
It comes down to every person on our team committing to our mission. Here’s how we do it every day.
For the 4th year running, we recognized the outstanding work of P&G employees around the world who have progressed diversity and inclusion initiatives through innovation, value creation, and inspirational leadership.
We joined 400 other companies through the CEO Action for Diversity & Inclusion and more than 50 global leaders through the Catalyst CEO Champions for Change to advance the conversations in our organization.
We know the importance of diversity in the workplace. That's why we attract, hire, and keep diverse people on our team so that we can better understand our world and our consumers. To keep that talent here, we’re creating opportunities and investing in plans for hiring, retaining, and developing them—to the executive level.
For over 40 years, our Supplier Diversity program has been awarding contracts to women- and minority-owned businesses—including military vets, people with disabilities, and LGBT owners. When our Supply Network reflects the diversity of our consumers, employees, and stakeholders, our community thrives.
