Choosing to Lead with Jeff Harmening

Wednesday, July 15 | 3:00 p.m. EDT

Harmening outlined how General Mills remained nimble in an ever-changing environment during the onset of COVID-19, what consumer behavior he was most surprised to see, the leadership lessons he learned in guiding his team and how they are planning for the future. As a Minnesota company, Harmening also discussed how the company is leaning into the discussion on systemic injustice and racism, and how the death of George Floyd served as a catalyst for the company’s latest actions.
