DIVERSITY,
EQUITY AND
INCLUSION

As a Cooperative, we strive to live our values of passion, quality, integrity and 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. 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.

OUR DIVERSITY, EQUITY AND INCLUSION STATEMENT

We are focused on 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 strong 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.

GUIDING PRINCIPLES

We are one – everyone at DFA is valued for their unique perspective and contributions and is a key member of the DFA family.

We can always do better – diversity and inclusion is a journey, not a destination, and requires a drive for continuous evaluation, reflection and improvement.

We are all accountable – every member of the DFA family is encouraged and expected to hold themselves and others accountable for upholding a culture of diversity and inclusion.

MEET THE DIVERSITY, EQUITY AND INCLUSION ADVISORY COUNCIL

To help drive continuous improvement and support from employees, we have a Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Advisory Council comprised of employees from across the Cooperative to help guide strategies to enhance and strengthen our diversity, equity and inclusion initiatives.

GIVING BACK IN OUR COMMUNITIES

To maintain a workforce reflective of the communities in which we live, operate and serve, we partner with organizations across the country who share in our commitment to diversity and inclusion to support our communities.
