Procter & Gamble has committed $100,000 to the Network of Executive Women, becoming the Network’s fifth 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. P&G has been a NEW sponsor since 2001.

As a Foundation sponsor, Procter & Gamble will help support the Network's activities, participate in national and regional events and be able to leverage the Network's career development and diversity and inclusion best practices tools.

At P&G, "diversity and inclusion is part of our DNA,” the company said in a statement. "P&G brings together individuals from different backgrounds, cultures, and working and thinking styles, providing remarkably different talents, perspectives, and life and career experiences, with respect for each individual. Our experience is that more diverse organizations are more innovative. Innovation doesn’t happen in a straight line. Diversity provides nodes to connect seemingly unconnected ideas.

"Our employees are reflective of the diverse consumers and markets we serve, representing more than 145 nationalities worldwide. To ensure we continue to infuse a diverse talent pool, we deliberately recruit, develop, and promote individuals of diverse backgrounds and provide an inclusive culture for them to flourish, so that everyone is valued, everyone is included and everyone is performing at their peak."

Procter & Gamble will be one of 11 individuals and companies to be inducted into the inaugural Network of Executive Women Diversity Hall of Fame this September during the NEW Leadership Summit in Orlando.

More than 70 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.
