Diversity, Equity & Inclusion at Ferrero
Ferrero is committed to building a diverse and inclusive culture in which all employees feel welcomed and appreciated and have the same opportunities. We believe all our people are equally talented in their own way. In nurturing the curiosity and natural abilities of our employees, we provide them, generation after generation, the means to succeed personally and professionally, enabling them to craft their journey at Ferrero. The diversity of our talents is what makes our work environment multicultural, innovative, and highly rewarding.
At Ferrero, our Diversity, Equity & Inclusion (DE&I) strategy is built on five dimensions that serve as a compass in defining global priorities and aspirations for 2030: Gender, Nationalities, Generations, Working Cultures and Persons with Disabilities.
These key pillars are linked to the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals.
At Ferrero, we have a DE&I team that makes action happen. It consists of:
- A Global Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Manager.
- Regional DEI Ambassadors that advance, coordinate and lead local DE&I efforts.
- DE&I Councils are supported by over 150 of our senior leaders.

Approach to DE&I
Our approach to DE&I is to identify opportunities to implement actions in our daily work, with initiatives broad in their reach and impactful in their results, engaging Ferrero employees in all functions, countries and levels.
We have a zero-tolerance policy for harassment or discrimination. We continue to review our policies and procedures to reduce the risk of bias and reflect our stance on DE&I.
We are focused on advancing a culture of inclusion through initiatives that raise awareness, promote diversity and remove barriers. We are committed to measuring our progress where possible in terms of both representation through employee data and inclusion via our employee surveys.
