The American Bakers Association (ABA) has released the 2022 Diversity, Equity, & Inclusion in the U.S. Commercial Baking Industry Study. Conducted in March 2022 by ndp analytics, the study assesses the current diversity, equity, and inclusion (DE&I) activities in the U.S. commercial baking industry.

The findings help employers better understand current baking industry DE&I strategies and initiatives, workforce demographics, and more.

The key findings and opportunities discovered in the study were presented at the NextGenBaker Leadership Forum in Alexandria, Virginia on April 28, 2022. During the Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Roundtable, ndp analytics Senior Economist Mary Donovan and members of the ABA DE&I Working Group led a dynamic discussion of the study findings and the opportunities for baking businesses.

“The Working Group commissioned this study to support ABA Members as they continue on their DE&I journeys,” said Christina Donnelly, director of industry relations, ABA. “Our goal is to offer resources and thought leadership on diversity, equity, and inclusion in the workplace that will benefit the industry.”

This is an ABA Member-exclusive study. ABA Members can access the full study here.
