Diversity, Equity & Inclusion

We lift our people to their highest potential

We are committed to creating an inclusive culture that encourages and celebrates the diversity required to innovate, connect and thrive in a taller, faster and smarter world.

That means our company strives to reflect the communities where we live and work, ensures all our voices feel safe, welcomed, and heard, and provides equitable opportunities for colleagues to grow and contribute our best.

Our commitment to change

In 2020, we announced our commitment to change, a framework with six pillars to ensure 
transparency and accountability for our progress toward ensuring that all colleagues feel safe, welcome and heard.

Diversity, inclusion and these six pillars are among core elements of our environment, social and governance (ESG) strategies.
