Kraft is experiencing this to a degree right now, as a result of our decision to be one of several contributors to the Gay Games in Chicago. The games will bring together thousands of athletes in a competition that will take place in our corporate hometown.
We also have received calls and e-mails - not as many, but equally passionate -- thanking us for supporting this event. Firestone then acknowledged likely employee feedback on the issue.
While Kraft certainly doesn't go looking for controversy, we have long been dedicated to support the concept and the reality of diversity. It's the right thing to do and it's good for our business and our work environment," the memo stated.
Firestone then reviewed Kraft's corporate policy on diversity. Diversity is more than a word many people like to say. At Kraft we truly respect all kinds of differences.
And diversity is not a selective concept. By definition, it's nothing if not inclusive. We respect diversity of ethnicity, gender, experience, background, personal style and yes, sexual orientation and gender identity.
Recognizing, respecting and valuing these differences helps us be a more successful business and a workplace where all employees can realize their full potential," Firestone wrote.
The newest of our nine diversity councils is the Rainbow Council, which strives to provide a forum for support and networking among gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender employees; raise awareness within Kraft and promote involvement in the community. Firestone noted that the corporate Gay Games sponsorship is only one of cash and in-kind contributions Kraft makes annually to various community organizations.
Firestone concluded the memo by alluding to the personal challenges employees might face in the ongoing controversy. It's easy to say you support a concept or a principle when nobody objects. I hope you share my view that our company has taken the right stand on diversity, including its contribution to the Gay Games in Chicago," Firestone wrote.
