McCormick & Company, Inc., was recognized on DiversityInc’s 2021 Top 50 list of Companies for Diversity for the fifth year in a row.
McCormick placed 47th overall in this year’s ranking in a survey conducted by DiversityInc, which highlights successes and best practices that promote the growth and advancement of underrepresented groups in the workplace.
“We are proud to be recognized as a 2021 DiversityInc Top 50 company for the fifth consecutive year,” said Lawrence E. Kurzius, Chairman, President and CEO of McCormick & Company in a press release.
McCormick’s 2021 ranking was the result of the company’s Ignite leadership development program for women designed to help participants manage career headwinds, as well as its robust supplier diversity program which focuses on enhancing relationships with businesses owned by minorities, women, veterans and the LGBTQ community. This year, McCormick’s recognition also reflects its philanthropy in support of communities, as it donated over $10 million amid the COVID-19 pandemic to support restaurant and hunger relief efforts as well as social justice organizations.
The Top 50 survey reflects DiversityInc’s mission to bring education and clarity to the business benefits of diversity.
