Employee Resource Groups
Employee Resource Groups engage members through exposure to inclusive experiences, create awareness and understanding of the diverse backgrounds and experiences represented throughout our Company, and leverage cultural differences to connect with each other through activities aligned with our pillars of People, Culture, Marketplace, and Community.
Talks with Tom
As a demonstration of commitment to diversity and inclusion in our workplace, our CEO engages in meaningful dialogue with small groups of employees to discuss topics that matter to them. Participants are encouraged to share their thoughts and ideas in an effort to cultivate meaningful change.
Coffee & Conversations
Coffee & Conversation connects coworkers around the globe. While joining together virtually or in person, an employee shares their personal experience from a global perspective, so other Berry employees can learn about various cultures, career journeys, and Company initiatives. This results in network and relationship building in our global culture.

A variety of tools are provided to help employees to perform at their highest potential & our executives make themselves available to mentor & support."
