Cargill statement on its commitment to become “Black Equity at Work” Certified
February 17, 2021
At Cargill, we know that by putting our people first, we create the environment to put our customers first. To do that we are investing in working to address systemic inequality experienced by Black people in the U.S. That is why Cargill joined an inaugural cohort of leading employers pursuing Management Leadership for Tomorrow Black Equity at Work Certification.
Cargill welcomes this rigorous, results-oriented roadmap toward achieving Black equity internally and guidance on how to support Black equity in local communities. Says Myriam Beatove, Chief Human Resources Officer at Cargill, “Racism is systemic, so our approach to addressing it must also be systemic. The status quo is not acceptable—we must do more in food and agriculture to invest in Black equity and dismantle anti-Black racism.”
