Pride Month is a time to honor the LGBTQ+ community’s past and reflect on the inspiring successes that have advanced equality for all. At The Kroger Co., we embrace diversity and inclusion as core values, and we ingrain these values in everything we do. We proudly celebrate our LGBTQ+ friends and family, and we’re so pleased to take part in Pride Month as a Human Rights Campaign Best Places to Work company.
Diversity Makes Us Stronger
The Kroger Co. recently received a perfect score on the Human Rights Campaign’s 2019 Corporate Equality Index, in recognition of our commitment to LGBTQ+ inclusion and equality. We’re one of just a few retailers willing to openly advocate for and make real change toward LGBTQ+ diversity and inclusion, and we’re proud to offer:
- Same-sex partner benefits and transgender-inclusive health care.
- An Associate Resource Group that provides an uplifting community for LGBTQ+ associates and allies.
- Strong alliances with LGBTQ+ suppliers through our partnership with the National Gay and Lesbian Chamber of Commerce.
