Kroger to Initiate a Program of Diversity in the Workplace


Following extensive interviews among employees and community leaders, the Kroger Company has introduced the Framework for Action: Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion.  The company will create a more inclusive culture, develop talent among employees, improve communication, advance prospects for minority communities, and will report on progress to shareholders in the communities in which the company operates.


Chairman and CEO, Rodney McMullen noted, “As America’s grocer Kroger is driven to bring Americans together as an employer, provider, and community partner.”  He added, “Over the last couple of months we have listened closely to our half million associates and countless communities across the nation.  It has never been clearer that our collective energy is necessary to achieve true and lasting equality.”


Kroger will form a Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Advisory Council to advance long term diversity.  The Council will be led by Monica Garnes, president of the Retail Division.
