Inclusion & Diversity
At Mars, we believe a diverse team with people who have different perspectives creates a stronger business. The world we want tomorrow is inclusive and diverse. That’s why we provide a number of different Associate Resource Groups (ARG) to support people of every culture, background, and lifestyle – to reach their full potential, be heard, and feel valued. So, no matter who you are or what your story is, you’ll find the support you need to be your best self here. We also foster communities through our Women in Engineering and Women in R&D groups, that help empower female Associates to reach their full potential.

But don’t take our word for it, we’re proud to be recognized by the following awards to support our Associates: 
• Fortune’s Best Workplaces for Manufacturing and Production
• People’s 50 Companies That Care list
• Forbes Americas Best Employers for Diversity
• Fortune’s 100 Best Companies to Work For
