How Kapable helps us create an inclusive workplace

KapableKellogg's resource group for those with disabilities and supporters, Kapable, ensures that our company has a welcoming and inclusive environment for current and future employees and their supporters. With this mission always in mind, the Kapable team is continually looking for ways to better our company’s culture, hold inspiring, educational events for employees and make a positive impact in our local communities.

KapableIn May, Kapable held an Awareness and Education event where Kellogg leaders spoke about how we can encourage our employees to bring their best self to work. The goal of this session was to help both employees and managers understand the benefits of self-identifying, how to support the workforce that has self-identified, and encourage those that haven’t self-identified to do so. By educating employees on how to update your personal information, discuss how the accommodation process works at Kellogg, and answer specific questions, we helped create a more inclusive and supportive environment for everyone.

KapableAt Kellogg, we know a diverse workforce is essential to the success of our business and Senior Director of Employee Relations, Ja’Ethel Williams, sums it up perfectly when she said, “We want to promote a community where, regardless of your limitations or different abilities, you can bring your best self to work. We want to make sure we help you be your best—that’s our primary focus as an organization.
