Diversity permeates the Jack in the Box Inc. organization:
In 2005, Jack in the Box created a cross-functional Diversity & Inclusion Team that continues to lead various diversity and inclusion initiatives for the company. There are also several Business Resource Groups (BRGs) that corporate employees can participate in, including one for Developing Women Leaders.
As part of the Jack in the Box Foundation’s support of The Preuss School, a unique charter middle and high school for low-income students who strive to become the first in their families to graduate from college, the Foundation contributes $25,000 annually in scholarship assistance to Preuss graduates who attend the University of California San Diego (UCSD).
For more than a decade, Jack in the Box has sponsored an annual Diversity Scholarship that provides financial aid to San Diego State University students with exemplary academic performance and extracurricular activities.
In 2019, CEO Lenny Comma signed onto the CEO Action for Diversity & Inclusion, the largest CEO-driven business commitment to advance diversity and inclusion in the workplace.
