General Mills says hell no to Minnesota anti-gay marriage amendment…
CEO Ken Powell voiced the company’s stance against the anti-gay marriage amendment that is on the ballot in November.
Ken Charles vice president of global diversity and inclusion for General Mills had this to say about it on the GM blog:
He voiced our company’s opposition to the proposed marriage amendment, an initiative that makes our state less inclusive and reduces our company’s ability to attract and retain talent.
While, General Mills doesn’t normally take positions on ballot measures, this is a business issue that impacts our employees.
I am proud to see our company join the ranks of local and national employers speaking out for inclusion. We do not believe the proposed constitutional amendment is in the best interests of our employees or our state economy – and as a Minnesota-based company we oppose it.
Honey, Trix aren’t for kids …
