At Altria and its companies, we foster diversity and inclusion among our workforce, consistent with our leadership responsibilities and core values. We define diversity as the unique characteristics and experiences that define each of us as individuals – it is about who we are. This includes, but is not limited to, race, religion, color, sex, age, disability, national origin, sexual orientation, gender identity, marital status, citizenship status, veteran status or other legally protected characteristics. We define inclusion as creating an environment where different perspectives are encouraged and valued – it is about how we work. Our dual commitment to a diverse workforce and an inclusive workplace can foster greater employee productivity and creativity while offering our businesses a competitive edge.
