Post believes a culture that prioritizes diversity, equity and inclusion (DEI) has a sustained, positive impact on our work environment, our people and our results. We are committed to building and maintaining that culture. We want to value the differences that make each of us unique and we want to have a workforce that is representative of the communities in which we live and work. Celebrating the diversity of our employees makes us a better organization, gives us a broader perspective and leads to a more enriched professional atmosphere that drives business performance. In addition to celebrating diversity, we strive to ensure inclusion for every employee, and seek to identify and eliminate any barriers that may prevent full opportunity and participation at all levels of the organization. Success can only be achieved if we treat everyone with respect. Each of us has a right to work in an environment free from harassment, discrimination, violence and retaliation.
To follow our journey, please read our DEI newsletter, which is available in English, Spanish, Somali, Haitian Creole and Hmong. In March 2023, Rob Vitale, President and CEO of Post Holdings, updated employees on advancements in our DEI efforts.

Each business has also implemented a top-down approach in supporting the council’s efforts and building a complementary business-specific DEI culture. For instance, our Bob Evans Farms business has integrated DEI as a foundation into company values, such as demonstrated in these videos:
