Diversity is a source of energy and innovation here at The Hershey Company. We have a long-standing commitment to fostering an inclusive environment where all employees around the world can bring their whole selves to work each day.

This starts with our hiring practices and extends to each area of our business—from consumer insights to representation in advertising, our supplier diversity program and the many organizations we support—to create a positive impact on communities around the world.

Our values of togetherness, integrity, making a difference and excellence have helped us build a uniquely Hershey approach that enables us to hire the best candidates, understand our diverse consumers, create more diverse and inclusive communities, and ultimately live our purpose of making more moments of goodness. We know, however, that we have more work to do, with room to improve and grow.
