Danone North America, in partnership with BOLD, our Black employee resource group, is encouraging Danoners to take time on Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Day to reflect, take action, and further amplify Dr. King’s vision of a truly equal society. To build on being more action-oriented, we provided employees with a list of organizations that directly impact Black mental health, economic self-reliance, and racial justice. These organizations are also eligible for Danone's employee match program; donations are 100% matched by Danone, up to $150/year. #MLKDay
Did you know that Danone’s Soil Health Program is currently the most comprehensive regenerative agriculture dairy program in the United States? The program represents thirty-five dairies and farms while encompassing three important pillars: protect soil, water, & biodiversity, respect animal welfare, and support generations of farmers. Watch this video to learn more about the results in year 3 of the program, how it benefits our environment, and what comes next!
We know how special—and how challenging—welcoming a new child into the world can be and recognize the importance of all parents having dedicated time to bond with their newest family member. To ensure our Danoners don’t have to choose between job security and spending time with their growing family, we’re proud to announce the expansion of our gender-neutral Parental Bonding Leave policy to our 3,500 manufacturing employees, enabling them to take up to 18 weeks’ paid time off after the birth or adoption of their child. Effective today, this benefit is now available to all 5,700 of our U.S. employees, regardless of gender or position within the company. We hope that by expanding our Parental Leave we will create a more equitable workplace and in doing so, challenge traditional assumptions on caregiving and help advance equality for all. #LifeatDanone
