Act as One Team
Lady Godiva was a woman of great courage who championed her townspeople against injustice and became a revered heroine known for her great passion, bold spirit, and generosity.
As we follow her example today, our mission at GODIVA is to “help open people's eyes to a more wonderful world." To fulfill that mission, diversity, equity and inclusion are needed to be at the heart of what we do and who we are. We believe that a diverse and inclusive work culture drives engagement, creates long-lasting careers and creates an authentic sense of belonging for all.
This mission will only be possible by collectively engaging our Values and Behaviors:
Act as One Team
As an organization, we will proactively work to build and nurture a culture that ensures every Chocolatier and guest feel that they belong, are valued and heard. We will be transparent and vulnerable as we listen to understand the uniqueness of others. We will work to openly and actively seek unique points of view to foster creative solutions. We will recruit and hire new Chocolatiers without judgement or bias. We will support the organization with tools to personally and professionally grow and develop to support this mission.
Our commitment is to build a culture where the actions we take to be a more diverse and inclusive organization are more than just a moment of response but are part of our movement to open people's eyes to a more wonderful world.
For GODIVA, being a responsible corporate citizen is a way of doing business. It’s a promise we keep with every stakeholder: to take action today for a brighter tomorrow. This commitment to support our communities began back in 1926 when we were founded by Pierre Draps in his humble home-workshop; it has remained at the heart of our brand as we’ve expanded distribution into more than 100 countries across the globe and continue to transform our business. To optimize our impact, and in alignment with the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals, we focus our efforts on two key areas: Women’s Empowerment and Sustainability.
