McDonald’s Corp. announced Tuesday a new commitment to diversity and leadership equity, with goals of having 35% of its leadership roles (from senior director and above) filled by people from underrepresented groups by 2025. The quick-service chain also aims to have women represent at least 45% of leadership roles (also from senior director and above) within the same timeframe, with a goal of reaching gender parity in leadership by 2030.
Currently, people from unrepresented groups like people of color make up 29% of the company’s leadership roles, while women account for 37% of leadership roles at McDonald’s, the company said in newly released data.
“As a world-leading brand that considers inclusion one of our core values, we will accept nothing less than real, measurable progress in our efforts to lead with empathy, treat people with dignity and respect, and seek out diverse points of view to drive better decision-making,” McDonald’s president and CEO Chris Kempczinski said...
