Creating positive change. Empowering you to do the same.
At Aramark, we want you to have the confidence to bring your whole self to work, find community, and grow on your terms.
Our Diversity and Inclusion leadership along with our newly founded Executive Diversity Council are building strategic focus to advance diversity, equity, and inclusion among our workforce and the wider community. We’re constantly pushing to make sure our teams are reflective of the diverse communities we represent and the customers we serve.
Now, more than ever, it’s incredibly important to build programs, structures, and systems that create concrete positive change and offer you a better career experience. Our diversity and inclusion program focuses around three critical areas:
Our goal is to hire, retain, and develop people with different abilities, backgrounds, experiences, gender identities, and orientations that reflect the communities that we serve.
We strive to create a workplace culture that values and leverages our many differences and drives innovation through inclusion.
We partner with diverse suppliers and community organizations so we can deliver culturally relevant products and services.
Aramark’s Employee Resource Groups create safe spaces for different community members and their allies. All hold open membership policies, offer fantastic leadership opportunities and year-round programming, and welcome everyone who wants to join!
As an additional resource to support our employees in their allyship, we created the Aramark Ally Network which works to provide programs, resources, and guidance to help us become aware, aligned, and active in the fight to end racism, inequality, and injustice.
Our diversity and inclusion efforts have been recognized by many notable organizations like the Human Rights Campaign, Diversity Inc., Black Enterprise Magazine, Diversity Best Practices, CAREERS & the disABLED Magazine and LATINO Magazine.
