We are undergoing an independent cultural audit and investigation, which will review our existing processes, policies and systems related to diversity and inclusion, supplier and vendor engagement, and Papa John's culture.

The Center for Talent Innovation, a leading diversity, equity and inclusion think tank, is leading this important work in conjunction with Akin Gump Strauss Hauer & Feld LLP and will provide actionable recommendations that we can take to ensure the company is driven by the values of diversity, equity, inclusion and respect. The goal of the audit is to get as many perspectives as possible from a varied and diverse array of team members at our corporate headquarters and to take meaningful action based on recommendations from the audit and best practices across industry sectors.

The audit and investigation is just getting started, but it is a high priority for our company. We will continue to update this space with more information.
