"Diversity and inclusion are naturally woven throughout the framework of Harris Teeter, starting with our own associates and the customers that we serve. Respecting our associates as individuals by valuing their differences and similarities is an integral part of our business strategy and serves to strengthen our company. On every level of our organization, we will build a qualified workforce that reflects the diversity of our communities. In doing so, we recognize that creative energies and ideas generated by a diverse group of associates will always exceed those of any one particular group. We will continue to strengthen our supplier diversity initiative. With these dynamics in place, the merchandising and marketing of Harris Teeter products and services are truly reflective of the diversity of our culture."
President of Harris Teeter
