This episode was previously recorded. In this episode of #PeoplewithPurpose, Steve Amsden is joined by Lourdes Diaz, VP - Diversity & Inclusion at US Foods, and Constantine Vutsas, Senior Manager - Diversity & Inclusion Recruiting and President of the US Foods Employee Resource Group (ERG), PRIDE.
US Foods is committed to fostering an environment that attracts the best talent, and values diversity of experiences and the inclusion of different perspectives as success and innovation are only achieved when all voices are heard and valued.
This strategy is important year-round. But it takes on special meaning as US Foods works to connect its employees and encourage allyship during the month of June when Lourdes, Constantine, and Steve met.
By leveraging ERG partnerships in order to focus on mental health, connecting diverse groups within the company, and celebrating the vibrant communities in which they live, US Foods strives to have the representation needed to best meet the needs of the markets it serves. And the team at US Foods has fun along the way. Listen now for a look at what allyship looks like at US Foods.
