Diversity & Inclusion
Diversity & Inclusion at Young’s
At Young’s Market Company, we are a diverse, inclusive, high commitment, high performance team that encourages employees to bring their whole selves and individuality to work. Young’s Partner Networks were created to support Young’s diverse culture and to be a resource to the company and its employees. Our Partner Networks provide a support system and a positive forum for information sharing, professional and personal development, as well as education and idea exchange on common issues of interest that add value. Our Partner Networks also help develop, engage, and attract a diverse workforce, while optimizing the strength of the group to meet our overall strategies for growth.
Armed Forces Network
“We believe we have a duty to do our part to help the ones who have sacrificed so much to protect our freedom.” – Vern Underwood, Jr
