Perdue Farms is continuing to raise the bar in the diversity category as it recently announced that its Groundbreaking Associate Inclusion Network (GAIN) won the 2021 Diversity Impact Awards™ in the Top 25 Employee Resource Group (ERG) Award category.

Kathryn Danko, Chief Diversity Officer and Vice President of Talent, Perdue Farms“Cultivating relationships and bridging the gap with our teams is vital to our success as a company,” said Kathryn Danko, Chief Diversity Officer and Vice President of Talent at Perdue Farms. “It is a major milestone for GAIN to be recognized on its work in diversity, equity, and inclusion. Our promise to always do what is right starts with people first, and it shows.”

According to the release, GAIN’s mission is to foster a sense of belonging for all associates of color at Perdue. This is the second consecutive Diversity Impact Awards™ win for Perdue, which last year received recognition for its Day of Understanding.

GAIN is one of Perdue’s five Associate Resource Groups (ARGs) and recently celebrated its one-year anniversary on July 31, making significant headway in its brief existence.

“Everything GAIN has already achieved and hopes to further achieve is people-centric. We’re always thinking of solutions for how we can assist our associates in achieving their goals professionally and personally,” said the Perdue group’s Co-Chairs Tykebia Fisher and Voncia Molock in a joint statement.

The 2021 Diversity Impact Awards represent the efforts of Diversity Councils, ERGs, and others to support their organizations through an unprecedented global pandemic. GAIN, along with other Perdue ERGs, stepped up to ensure this vital work continued amidst some of our greatest challenges, helping to keep people connected during the most trying of times.

“The positive feedback from our fellow associates keeps us motivated and determined to take GAIN even further than we've ever dreamed or imagined. GAIN truly believes that together, we can increase transparency and trust, improve skills and satisfaction, and boost productivity and retention to exceed goals and surpass our competition on all fronts,” Fisher and Molock said.

Perdue’s GAIN will be recognized at The Diversity Impact Awards ceremony during the 2021 ERG & Council Conference and livestreamed by the USC Marshall School of Business Center for Effective Organizations’ (CEO) virtual ERG Leadership Summit on Friday, September 17, 2021.

Congratulations to Perdue Farms on this amazing milestone!
