We are reaching the end of 2020. A totally atypical year that imposed changes, adaptation and a lot of agility. It was time to risk, make mistakes and get it right with every decision made. It was also filled with great achievements and excellent opportunities to innovate, do different and even better.
After a year of hard work, it is finally time to reap the rewards, to remember our journey and celebrating with you the successes we have achieved TOGETHER!
Diversity and Inclusion
Diversity and Inclusion is an indispensable theme at Arcos Dorados. And this year, many actions about it were developed. At the beginning of the 2nd semester, our traditional HU Sessions brought the theme LGBTIQ + Pride so that we can contribute to a more inclusive world, preventing acts and attitudes that are against diversity and promoting #ArcosPride.
Also focusing on this pillar, another HU Sessions was structured with the theme Unconscious biases helping each participant to “deal with what is different”.
In Arcos Dorados we want an increasingly diverse and inclusive environment. WE ARE gender, WE ARE sexual diversity, WE ARE intergenerational relationships, WE ARE health and well being. WE ARE!
* To review these sessions, go to MCampus.
