Diversity and Inclusion

Challenge: All people are socially and economically empowered

Explicit or implicit biases are present in every work environment, they can vary widely across geographies and cultures, and they often result from a complex combination of traditional power structures, categorisations of economic or ethnic class, and attitudes toward gender. Prohibiting any form of discrimination is the necessary framework for work opportunities and career advancement.

Our Initiatives Include:
  • Our Fair Employment Policy that covers our operations for all forms of diversity
  • Establishing a Diversity and Inclusion Council
  • Dedicated training sessions and support for female farmers, with gender reporting by product supply chain
  • Our Supplier Code, which clearly stipulates that third-party suppliers “encourage gender equality, equal access and empowerment of women”
Scaling Impact Through Sector Initiatives Such As:
  • Signatory to UN Women’s Empowerment Principles
  • WEConnect International – A global network that connects women-owned businesses to qualified buyers around the world
We report on the goals and targets in the Human and Social Capital sections of our 2020 Annual Report.
Improving Every Day for Rural Women

Olam’s ambition to improve smallholder livelihoods cannot be fully achieved without addressing gender equality.

Gender equality is a human right, strongly linked to agricultural productivity and social and economic development. Yet in many rural communities where we work, women have vastly unequal decision-making power, control over use of income, and access to education, finance, land, and inputs.

Empowering Women Farmers for a Stronger Coffee Chain

With the Flor do Café project I learned about coffee quality and by that I added value to my product, through selective harvesting, the right use of products at the right time to control pests and diseases within safety standards.
