Del Monte is committed to promoting and preserving a workplace environment rich in diversity. One in which individual differences are not simply tolerated or accepted, but truly appreciated.  Diversity encompasses universally recognized traits such as race, gender, sexual orientation, and national origin; however, it also includes less obvious individual differences such as socioeconomic background. Our philosophy holds that promoting these differences in the workplace is a means to encourage personal and organizational growth and contribution, and further enables individuals and teams. Furthermore, workplace diversity reflects the changing face of the American workforce and population, as well as our customer base.
