Diversity & Inclusion

At Hershey, we believe that our differences are our greatest strength. These differences are reflected in how we see the world, how we think and learn, how we approach work, and how we relate to others both internally and externally. Our company celebrates our vibrant, diverse employees and the unique differences that make our people so remarkable.

These differences drive our competitive advantage, fostering innovation and helping us achieve our vision for global growth. We believe that everybody's voice creates One Hershey and it is through this connection that we will drive industry leading growth.

Business Resource Groups: supporting an inclusive work environment

Our eight Business Resource Groups are a critical component of our inclusive work environment, providing cultural awareness and developing top talent. More than 1500 members from across Hershey have the opportunity to enhance their professional growth and exposure through participation in workshops, networking, project support and connection with executive leaders.
