At Giant Eagle, we believe Inclusion, Equity & Diversity are critical for three reasons. First, it is simply the right thing to do—supporting a culture in which everyone, regardless of what makes them unique, can thrive. This is the foundation of treating people with respect. Second, it is crucial to building a great business. Innovation and staying relevant to our Guests, who all have unique needs, is the key to business success. For that to happen, we need people from different backgrounds and with different perspectives who can help solve problems from different angles. For this to happen effectively, our Team Members must feel like they belong and therefore be able to bring their whole selves to work. This is how we make the best possible business decisions. Third, we know that Giant Eagle can’t truly thrive until everyone in our community thrives, and we’re committed to doing our part to help every community member feel included. We even think about the order of the words Inclusion, Equity & Diversity very intentionally. Although diversity and equity are critical elements of the work, we believe they are merely a means to our true goal of inclusion. This is why we put inclusion first. Without inclusion, it’s all for naught.
We’re honored to play an important role in our communities by providing our neighbors with the essentials they need to thrive. To do this, we must understand the unique perspectives and needs of our neighbors—listening, learning, and valuing everyone’s contributions and experiences. While we focus every day on acknowledging blind spots, educating ourselves, and taking action, we know we’re running a marathon and that we still have so far to go. But, if we’re open, honest and vulnerable, we will continue to build bridges with one another. This is how we continue to move forward together.
We are determined to make progress and lead and welcome you to join us on this journey.
At Giant Eagle, we know that a culture of inclusion and belonging, based on respect for all people, is the right thing to do. Everyone from all walks of life who interacts with our Company should feel like they belong. This includes our Team Members, Guests, business partners, community members and shareholders.
It is also a critical path to innovation and business success. When people feel like they belong, they work smarter and more creatively. We build an inclusive, equitable and diverse culture by empowering each person, collaborating with people who think differently and celebrating their differences and unique talents.
Giant Eagle will build a better and more informed business when it engages with the diverse perspectives of each Team Member, Guest, business partner, community member and shareholder, and incorporates those perspectives into every action and decision. Our Company will mirror the people we serve.
Every person who interacts with Giant Eagle will feel like they belong and can thrive as their true self.
