Cargill’s law department honored for diversity leadership
CHICAGO, IL, March 27, 2008/ DiversityBusiness.com -- Cargill’s law department was one of two corporate legal departments to capture 2008 Employer of Choice Awards at the Minority Corporate Counsel Association (MCCA)’s Midwest Region Diversity Dinner held here on March 26.

“This is a company that is diverse, that works to advance diversity in its local community, and that is committed to being a national leader as well,” said MCCA’s Veta Richardson in describing what impressed the evaluation team.

MCCA called out Cargill for its role in establishing Twin Cities Diversity in Practice, a community-wide effort to recruit and retain minority lawyers in Minneapolis and St. Paul, Minn. As the first corporate law department to join the organization, Cargill helped to recruit additional corporate members, which now number 14. Among Diversity in Practice’s innovative recruitment programs are “Flying Squads” of lawyers who visit law schools with high minority enrollments to promote Minnesota as a place for lawyers of color to practice.

Also noted was the law department’s leadership in Cargill’s company-wide employee affinity groups, including the Ebony Council, co-founded by Assistant vice President and Chief Trademark Counsel Ron Hunter; the Hispanic-Latino Council, led by Senior Intellectual Property Lawyer Peter Reyes; the Women’s Council, led by Senior Lawyer Angie Geiman; and the Rainbow Alliance (for lesbian-gay-transgender employees), whose executive sponsor is Vice President and General Counsel Steve Euller.

“For Cargill Law, diversity is a core value,” said Euller. “Our deliberate strategy to operate as one global team requires us to embrace and exploit our diversity to maximize our effectiveness. We work hard at all our locations to attract diverse candidates and nurture their development and advancement.”

Cargill is an international provider of food, agricultural and risk management products and services. With 158,000 employees in 66 countries, the company is committed to using its knowledge and experience to collaborate with customers to help them succeed.
