What Diversity and Inclusion Means

Diversity is the collective mixture of differences and similarities in our Team Members. Inclusion is Team Members coming together to succeed to better serve our customers.

“Diversity is the Mix... Inclusion is Making the Mix Work”

Fred Meijer emphasized the importance of treating everyone with dignity and respect. Diversity and Inclusion guide us to do so. We want all Team Members to have the same opportunity for success and Diversity and Inclusion help us level the professional playing field.

Together, we build a family of diverse and inclusive Team Members reflective of our customers to improve our communities, and achieve superior performance.

Meijer is committed to Diversity and Inclusion. We have a D&I Council comprised of business partners and leaders providing guidance and oversight to ongoing efforts.

Team Member Resource Groups
