Diversity, Equity & Inclusion
Building a Home for All
We strive to build a home for all at Fortune Brands, and this conviction also extends to our charitable partnerships. We are putting even greater focus on supporting organizations that are advancing diversity, equity and inclusion (DEI) in our communities.
We support Ravinia music festival’s Sistema Ravinia Harza Nucleo student orchestra. The program is part of their Reach Teach Play initiative and gives students in diverse, low-income communities access to music education, community and personal growth opportunities. Fortune Brands is also a long-time supporter of the Beyond Sports Foundation, which helps Chicago-area student athletes in under-resourced communities realize their academic and professional goals beyond their high school sports. In addition to financial support, Fortune Brands has recently expanded this partnership to offer internship and job opportunities to student athletes.
Our businesses are making a difference in their communities through organizations like Habitat for Humanity and Rebuilding Together, working to reduce housing inequality and give all families the foundation for a safe, healthy future. Our businesses also have relationships with local schools in under-resourced communities, minority trade associations, organizations serving people with disabilities, and more.
