Kelly Baker, vice president of diversity at Minneapolis-based General Mills Inc., recently testified before the Committee on Education and Labor Subcommittee at a Health, Employment, Labor and Pensions hearing in favor of a federal law prohibiting discrimination against the GLBT community.

Among her comments, Baker told the committee that her company's "policy and, more importantly, our company culture exemplifies the spirit of the proposed Employment Non-Discrimination Act (ENDA). In fact, 94 percent of our employees say General Mills provides a working environment accepting of differences in background and lifestyle. As proud as I am of that statistic, I'm even prouder when I see this diversity prominently represented by all kinds of family pictures proudly displayed in peoples' offices at General Mills."
