Kellogg Company Named a Top Company For Executive Women

Kellogg Company Named a Top Company For Executive Women

With four women on its board of directors, or 38%, and eight women holding spots on the company’s Global Leadership Team, Kellogg has again been named among the “Top 50 Companies for Executive Women” by the National Association for Female Executives in the US. This is the second consecutive year Kellogg has been named to the list and the fourth time receiving the recognition since 2009.

Wendy Davidson, President, US Specialty Channels, says this is one of reasons she was drawn to Kellogg. She joined the company in September 2013, and as chair elect of the Women’s Foodservice Forum, she has spoken about our Kellogg’s very intentional efforts to develop talented employees of every gender.

“There are a lot of companies that talk about that, but Kellogg really believes in investing in talent development, building a pipeline of future leaders and fostering a diverse and inclusive environment,” Wendy Davidson says. “Women hold a great deal of economic power, represent a larger than ever portion of the workforce and make most of the decisions about food purchasing and preparation.” She adds: “Meeting their needs in the workplace and marketplace requires that our workforce and leadership are reflective of those we’re serving.”

NAFE is one of the US’s largest associations for women professionals and business owners, providing resources through education, networking and public advocacy to empower its members to achieve both career and personal success.

To determine its annual best companies list, NAFE conducts a comprehensive assessment which includes a review of corporate programs and policies dedicated to advancing women, in addition to the number of women in each company overall, in senior management and on its board of directors.
