Food Lion forces employees to undergo multiple ideological trainings and uses its reputation, corporate funds, and political influence to support controversial sex and gender ideologies, organizations, and legislation. Food Lion plans to implement and expand unconscious bias education. The company supports the Equality Act and has donated to a local chapter of the National Urban League. Food Lion’s CEO, Meg Ham, signed the CEO Action for Diversity & Inclusion pledge, which includes a commitment to promote DEI through bias education training in the workplace.
