We believe an inclusive culture is good for business, fostering the creativity and innovation that our iconic brands rely on.
As an equal opportunity employer, we comply with the laws and regulations governing non-discrimination in employment practices in every jurisdiction where we do business. Hasbro is also a government contractor and maintains an affirmative action program to recruit and advance qualified minorities, women, persons with disabilities, and covered veterans.
We track the percentage of women in our workforce globally, and of minority employees in the United States.
Hasbro continues to make strides in advancing women in the workplace. In 2015 our women in leadership roles* was 35 percent globally, a 13 percent increase compared to 2011. We have also had strong engagement efforts led by our Women’s Leadership employee network in the U.S. and sponsored by Hasbro’s Chairman, President and CEO, focusing on career development, work/life integration and mentorship. They have hosted professional summits, leadership panels and a speaker series for employees in Rhode Island. Additionally, in 2016, Hasbro was proud to add two new female members to its Board of Directors, increasing female representation to 37 percent. Hasbro remains committed to further increasing women participation on its board in 2017 and beyond.
We continue to make efforts to improve the diversity of our workforce at all levels. In 2016/2017, we are developing a set of goals to guide and measure our performance on diversity and inclusion.

* Leadership roles are defined as director level and above.
“Diversity is realized not in theory or numbers, but in how an organization conducts itself relative to the acceptance, elevation, and relevance of diverse points of view, skin color, race, sexual orientation, and lifestyle. Hasbro scores high on all of these fronts; the company has an open-door policy, even at the highest level and encourages and embraces varying points of view based on its employees’ professional and personal experiences.”
