Yum! Brands Sr. Director of
Global Diversity and Inclusion


In the U.S., we partner with a wide range of colleges and institutions to attract the best talent to our workplace, including the National Hispanic and Black MBA Associations. We also train our managers in the leadership skills needed to foster an inclusive work environment that is built on everyone’s contributions.

In addition, our workforce sourcing objectives remain grounded in hiring the right people - those who reflect our customer base and the communities in which we operate - for the right jobs.

We are routinely recognized for the diversity of our workplace:

  • Achieved “Green” Rating on the Corporate Equality Index
