ONE DFA COMMUNITY
Our core value of community encompasses the way we promote a diverse and inclusive workforce as a global dairy Cooperative. We strive to live our value of community not only through our day-to-day work, but also in our relationships and interactions with our farmer-owners, our customers and one another. Through the guidance of our Diversity and Inclusion Advisory Council, comprised of employees from across the Cooperative, we continue to work to create and promote a culture that is welcoming to everyone, regardless of their race, ethnicity, sexual orientation, gender identity, religion or ability.
We are guided by our diversity and inclusion charter statement: We are focused on building and maintaining a workforce that reflects the diversity of the communities in which we live, operate and serve. We believe that diverse perspectives lead to better decisions, more creative innovation, more effective problem solving and stronger customer and consumer relationships. To achieve these goals, we are committed to fostering and strengthening a culture of openness, inclusion, constant introspection and continued growth.
