Mars Mentorship Program Offers New Opportunities for Women in Global Emerging Markets

With only two females on a team of fifteen, the Global Emerging Markets [formally known as Asia-Australia, Middle East & Africa (AMEA)] leadership team realized they had to take action. 

To assess the challenges, the office commissioned a survey to ask what women needed to succeed. Several women voiced their opinions for more advice and support — and in response, the team launched this Mentorship Program in 2018. 

Now, not even a year later, the program redefines how women receive support on their leadership journey.

Why We Know Pets Work at Work

We believe that A Better World For Pets is a better world for everyone, and that’s a world where more pets are more welcome in more places — including work. 

For the last 10 years we’ve reinforced and implemented our pet-friendly culture across Mars sites worldwide. We visited with some of our Associates to get a firsthand look at their experiences and the benefits of working side-by-side each day with their best friends. One thing they all agree on: pets at work, work — for both people and for pets.

Propelling Mars Toward Sustainable, Renewable Energy Goals

Bold ambitions require bold actions. So when Mars flipped the switch to wind in Mexico, we ensured that our electricity consumption is 100% renewable, powered by a new wind farm in Dzilam Bravo, Mexico.

Mars Mexico joins nine other regional Mars operations that are migrating to clean energy, including Austria, Belgium, the Czech Republic, France, Lithuania, Poland, Spain, the United Kingdom and the United States. Australia will come online soon.

Beyond the Fridge: The Real Deal About Food Safety at Mars

Most people consider food safety measures when they’re planning their meals. From reading expiration dates on food labels to handling raw meat and using a thermometer, we generally only think about food safety when we’re in our kitchens. But what you may not know is that food safety is a global threat — with serious implications for the environment and long-term food security. Because if it’s not safe, it’s not food.
