Companies and firms are embracing vastly different approaches to achieve better diversity and inclusion, as Muireann Bolger reports.

While the Mansfield Rule has a certain cache, some brands are taking different approaches to address diversity, and inclusion (D&I).

Hershey is among those brands that have eschewed the Mansfield Rule in favour of devising their own D&I programs.

Angela Wilson, the company’s general counsel, IP, said Hershey has focused on equitable hiring, development, and promotions of women and people of colour as well as employees identifying as veterans, LGBTQ+, and disabled for more than a decade.
