Equity, Diversity & Inclusion Manager

“For me the best thing to come out of the strategy would be that we all learn to respect one another, so that people feel safe coming to work as who they are. You don’t have to agree with everyone, but you do have to try and understand where they’re coming from.”
Aditi Madhok-Naarden
VP, HR, Global Growth Markets

“It was definitely a deciding factor for me joining Tate & Lyle. In my experience, ED&I is often seen through a Western/Northern European lens - and we want to ensure it resonates with ALL our people."
Brandon Johnson
VP, Manufacturing

“We’re reflecting our local communities in plants more. Study after study shows that the highest-performing teams are the ones with the most diversity of thought, background and personality. ED&I is 1,000% the right thing to do, and I’m excited for where it will take us.”
We invite you, our talent community and future members of the Tate & Lyle team, to accompany us on our ED&I journey as we continue to create an inclusive workplace culture that represents the diversity of the local communities we serve and enables us to achieve our purpose of Transforming Lives Through the Science of Food.
