Our purpose is to ensure that each employee of Diageo Turkey can clearly feel the freedom to reflect their specific characteristics in every aspect. Because we believe that a corporate culture, which we enjoy and appreciate, is possible with diversity, differences and a working environment where these are proudly introduced and mutually recognized.
The primary reason for introducing inclusion and diversity as one of our work principles is that they make sustainable contribution to our teammates, customers and ultimately to our business with different opinions, experiences and backgrounds. We believe that an employee distribution, which reflects the diversity of our customers and consumers, will help us become a more successful company of which the employees are proud to be a part. For this reason, internalizing, recognizing and valuing differences in viewpoints of our workmates and reviewing our assumptions form an important part of job description of each of us, whether it is in the leadership level or not.
As part of our efforts towards inclusion and diversity, we hold focus group workshops in our company, listen to the expectations of our employees and develop future action plans to find out what we are good at and what we can do better. As a company that is aware of the importance of listening and being multi-voiced, we continue to work on inclusion and diversity under the leadership of our Inclusion and Diversity Committee, consisting of volunteers. Explaining why inclusion and diversity is important to us and defining our purpose and principles, our Inclusion and Diversity Manifesto, which we have compiled as a guide to refer to while developing the leading policies, aims to clarify our attitude and stance towards inclusion and diversity for our employees, customers, all our stakeholders and everyone following us.

All our processes are in compliance with our basic principles of justice and transparency. Every year, we develop a "Justice Map" and focus on finding out what we are good at and identifying our areas of improvement.
