Diversity, Equity & Inclusion

An inclusive culture is a thriving culture. We are committed to our employees feeling safe, valued and heard.


The More Perspectives We Have the More Dimensions We See

Diversity, equity and inclusion (DE&I) are more than just values—they're a competitive advantage. By creating a culture where our employees are recognized for their contribution and given a chance to grow, we regularly open ourselves and our business to new opportunities.

With a shared foundation of respect, integrity, service and excellence—values we call RISE—we use our position as a leading global company to positively impact: 

  • Our Culture: Strengthening our inclusive culture so our people are safe, valued and heard.
  • Our Talent: Increasing the diversity of our workforce through ongoing recruitment, training, and retention initiatives.
  • Our Marketplace: Investing in diverse suppliers and increasing our philanthropic activities to impact the community.
