Jobs, Inclusion & Empowerment
We Are Accelerating Equity and Providing Opportunity
We are serving up bright futures by providing opportunity for education and skills in the communities we serve and through accelerating equity and inclusion across our business. Whether it’s providing access to local education, tuition assistance or job-readiness programs – together with our Franchisees, we make opportunity open for all.
I’m so proud of the people who work at McDonald’s – in restaurants, in office buildings and throughout our supply chain. Their resilience, the care they show for one another and their commitment to do the right thing is inspiring. I also know it is one thing to recite our values, to write them on posters and display them in our restaurants and offices. It’s much more meaningful to intentionally live these values every day, to the best of our abilities. That is why we will continue to support programs and policies that are actionable and encourage accountability – from our recently announced global diversity, equity and inclusion ambition to our education assistance programs and our approach to people safety.
