US: Monsanto named as a top company for diversity

For the seventh year in a row, DiversityInc has recognized Monsanto Company for its commitment to diversity with the inclusion of the sustainable agriculture company to its annual diversity list. Monsanto took the 46th spot on the publication’s 14th annual Top 50 Companies for Diversity ranking. The St. Louis based company is the only business from the region to make the list.

“Monsanto is excited to again be recognized by DiversityInc for our diversity and inclusion practices,” said Melissa Harper, Monsanto’s vice president of global talent acquisition and diversity. “With more than 22,000 people around the world, we take great pride in the variety of backgrounds, perspectives and experiences of our employees. This diverse, inclusive culture fuels our innovation and is essential to our success.”

“Monsanto’s mission is to help farmers produce safe, affordable and nutritious food for our growing world,” added Hugh Grant, Monsanto’s chairman and CEO. “We need a diverse and talented workforce to deliver new innovations to increase food production, improve climate resilience and address challenges in agriculture for today and tomorrow.”
