We Stand With P&G
For nearly two centuries, Procter & Gamble has been a part of the fabric of the Cincinnati community. P&G employees are our friends, our neighbors, our volunteers, and our committed supporters. And today, in the face of a threat to the company’s future, one that could profoundly affect our community, we want to make one thing clear: We stand with P&G.
No matter where you look in Cincinnati, you’ll see the influence of innovative and committed P&G leaders. Our United Way, one of the most generous in the country, was started by P&G executives. Walk down Vine Street and experience revitalized neighborhoods, thanks to forward-thinking P&G leadership that continues to drive ongoing progress. Our arts organizations are ranked among the best in the world, with much thanks to the volunteer hours that come from talented P&G marketers.
P&G and its employees invest millions each year to support arts and innovation across the Cincinnati region. P&G is steeped in its commitment to keeping Cincinnati one of the nation’s most culturally vibrant, transformative, world-class corporate headquarter regions. Chances are, if there’s a school or a community group that you care about, a P&G employee is playing a key role.
None of us wants to consider the devastating impact of a corporate raider’s proposal: that P&G be broken into parts, dramatically reducing the company’s size and presence in Cincinnati. None of us wants to imagine a Cincinnati region without the generous, thoughtful, and strategic leadership that P&G provides to the priorities our region values most.
Cincinnatians value determination and meet challenges head on. P&G has done just that. It is a different company than it was just a few years ago. P&G is executing a winning strategy for the future and now is the time to focus on accelerating that momentum.
We know firsthand that P&G employees are deeply engaged across Cincinnati as innovators, volunteers, board leaders, givers, creators, mentors, encouragers, and believers. Their energy, passion, and innovative spirit is infectious. Put simply, the best of Cincinnati has always been reflected by our 10,000 neighbors who lead Procter & Gamble.
We stand with them today because they stand with us, always.
