Diversity of Colgate People
Colgate-Palmolive's success is created by Colgate people who work together as a worldwide team, using their individual strengths to achieve business results. This strong global teamwork requires a company culture in which everyone works well together and truly values one another. We support an environment where everyone's ideas are shared and respected. At Colgate-Palmolive, we want people to feel energized and encouraged to contribute to their fullest potential.
The diversity of Colgate people around the world is vital to finding new solutions to business challenges and new opportunities from unique insights. Differences are recognized and appreciated as the traits that make each of us who we are. We celebrate diversity in our people because we know that it is these differences that are the foundations of our continued achievement.
Global business success requires Colgate people to be diverse in all the respects of the populations we serve worldwide. Our business strategy of driving growth, funding growth and becoming the best place to work is dependent on the fullest contributions of all employees wherever they are.
