Our Company:  Living Our Values

Living Our Values
Global Diversity

The rich diversity of our people, our thinking, our talent and our suppliers is key to our success.

"Recognizing and valuing the many differences that make us who we are is vital to our culture. This diversity includes more than the obvious traits, like nationality, culture, race and gender. Our diversity also encompasses many differences that are not so easily seen, such as life experiences, religion, sexual orientation and family situations, just to name a few.

These differences bring a depth and variety of ideas to our business that cannot come from any other source. They are the keys to finding new solutions to business challenges and new opportunities from unique insights. Creating an inclusive environment is absolutely critical to ensure that we can benefit from these diverse viewpoints, diverse ideas and diverse perspectives."
— Ian Cook, Chairman, President and Chief Executive Officer

"Our objective is to live our Managing With Respect principles by fostering an inclusive workplace that mirrors the diversity of the global marketplace. Such an environment will provide all Colgate people with the opportunity to make unique contributions to our overall business success."
— Eugene Kelly, Worldwide Director, Global Workplace Initiatives

Multicultural Marketing

"Multicultural Marketing is the introduction of products and services to a diverse group of consumers consistent with their cultural and lifestyle preferences in a manner that acknowledges the cultural nuances in a respectful way."
— General Manager, Multicultural Marketing

At Colgate, we understand that each global market has its own unique purchasing preferences and product needs. Recent U.S. Census data confirms that Hispanic-American, African-American and Asian-American markets are the fastest growing consumer markets in both numbers and purchasing power. The U.S. Multicultural Marketing Organization within Colgate is focused on driving growth in these important consumer markets. Our objective is to know our global consumers and develop products that fit their needs.
