Kraft Foods becomes NEW Foundation sponsor
Thursday, November 11, 2010
Kraft Foods Inc. has committed $100,000 to the Network of Executive Women, becoming the Network’s second Foundation sponsor and renewing its support of the organization’s mission to attract, retain and advance women in the retail and consumer products industry through education, leadership and business development.
The Northfield, Ill.-based company, which employs 140,000 people worldwide, has been a national Network sponsor since 2006.
"Kraft strategically leverages NEW as a training and development tool for women in field sales,” said NEW Board Member and Sponsorship Chair Regenia Stein, vice president for business performance, industry development and communications for Kraft Foods. "I have seen first-hand the impact NEW can have on women and their careers. NEW hosts a number of provocative events, both national and local, which allow our employees to be stimulated and engaged and network with others, resulting in meaningful business relationships.”
As a Foundation sponsor, Kraft Foods will receive exposure at national and regional events and be able to leverage the Network's engagement opportunities, educational experiences and other tools and support to advance its diversity and inclusion values and strategies.
With operations in more than 70 countries and sales in approximately 160 countries, Kraft Foods has annual revenues of approximately $48 billion. Seventy of the cpg/retail industry's largest companies are national Network sponsors. Ninety-five percent of the Network's sponsors renew their commitment each year.
