Commitment to Racial Equity, Diversity and Inclusion
The W.K. Kellogg Foundation has a long-standing and ongoing commitment to diversity, inclusion and equity – both internally through our work environment and externally through our programming. Under our strategic framework, we have identified the active pursuit of racial equity, by embracing healing efforts and eradicating structural racism, as an explicit approach of our programming. We value differences among individuals across multiple dimensions including, but not limited to, race, ethnicity, age, gender, sexual orientation, gender identity and expression, physical ability, religion and socioeconomic status. We believe that bringing together staff and other partners with differing backgrounds and life experiences will enhance our ability to increase opportunities for all families and children to succeed. Building an inclusionary organizational culture means that not only do we count people, but that people count. And building a culture of equitable relationships means not only do people count, people feel like they belong. This is the aspiration of the W.K. Kellogg Foundation.
To support our employees and their families, the W.K. Kellogg Foundation offers a total rewards package comprised of competitive salaries and comprehensive benefits. The cafeteria style benefits package includes choices of affordable medical and dental plans designed to meet individuals’ varying needs, disability and life insurance programs, health and dependent care reimbursement accounts, broad retirement benefits and a generous number of paid holiday and vacation days. Additionally, the foundation provides for personal and professional growth through an educational reimbursement program, opportunities for professional recognition and development and work-life balance and wellness programs.
