To support a culture that values workplace diversity, and to foster professional development, ConAgra Foods sponsors six employee resource networks (ERNs). The ConAgra Foods Young Professionals Network (CYPN) provides employees with less than 15 years of professional work experience, the opportunity to network, support company business goals and enhance personal and professional growth.



Significant CYPN initiatives include creating a young professional recruitment video, leading educational sessions for managers and senior leaders discussing the Millennial generation, and providing input on new product innovation. The network’s members also help the company forge strong partnerships in the community, in the marketplace and with stakeholders. 

The creation of the CYPN is one of the many ways that ConAgra Foods demonstrates its commitment to providing young professionals opportunities that directly impact the business. This investment has resulted in increased employee engagement and recently being named a top 40 undergraduate internship program by Bloomberg Business Week.

Based in Omaha, ConAgra Foods is one of North America’s leading food companies, with brands in 97 percent of America’s households. Consumers find Banquet, Chef Boyardee, Egg Beaters, Healthy Choice, Hebrew National, Hunt’s, Marie Callender’s, Orville Redenbacher’s, PAM, Peter Pan, Reddi-wip and many ConAgra Foods brands in grocery, convenience, mass merchandise and club stores.
