Diversity, Equity and Inclusion
We're committed to reflecting the communities we serve, and ensuring that all associates can bring their wholes selves to work, every day. The lived experiences and unique characteristics of each associate contribute to a robust culture where diversity is celebrated, inclusion is nurtured and a sense of belonging helps everyone thrive and have meaningful experiences.
We support this culture through ongoing awareness and both leader and associate-led efforts as well as countless collaborations and partnerships with national and local community organizations.
Our Diversity, Equity and Inclusion (DEI) Council, comprised of associates from all areas of the company, works with leaders across Hannaford to ensure our DEI ambitions are realized for our associates, our customers and our communities.
Our associates lead formal Business Resource Groups (BRG) to advance DEI initiatives, awareness, education and professional growth. These include BRGs specific to:
- Ethnicity and Race (Mosaic)
- LGBTQA+ (FRIENDS)
- Veterans, Military and Service Members
We're proud to have earned a perfect score of 100% on the Human Rights Campaign's Corporate Equality Index for the past 9 years, designating the company as a Best Place to Work for LGBTQ people.
