Employee Resource Groups

Yum!’s ERGs play a key role in driving a culture of diversity by providing networking, mentoring, educational workshops and leadership development opportunities across our system and the communities in which we do business. While each ERG has a specific focus area, all groups are open to all employees. ERGs vary by location, but examples include:

  • Yum! Era: Yum!’s multicultural ERG advocates for inclusion in the workplace by providing cultural awareness education, connecting members with leadership, sharing customer insights and growing talent and leaders within the company.
  • g2: g2 develops and connects young professionals throughout the Yum! family and the community.
  • Women in Networking (WIN): WIN members build community, leverage cross-functional knowledge, and identify and address barriers to growth. Quarterly events provide opportunities for development and learning.
  • Yum! Pride Network (YPN): YPN serves to engage and support lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer or questioning employees by communicating with employees, organizing events for members and attracting LGBTQ talent.

We engage with these groups in innovative ways. For example, Era members form focus groups to provide feedback on brands’ marketing materials. Their wide-ranging perspectives allow us to better connect with our customer base and avoid potential insensitivities. G2 has participated in think tanks for KFC U.S, dividing into teams and pitching potential new products to KFC U.S. senior leadership, who then explored opportunities to bring the concepts to life.
