Diversity and inclusion


Embracing diversity helps us attract and retain top talent.

General Mills products are found in more than 100 countries around the globe, and it’s essential that our teams and suppliers represent the wide expanse of customers we serve. Diversity is built into our company. It helps us ensure that the ideas — and food — we bring to the table will be the best in the world.
