Executive Diversity Council
Our Executive Diversity Council meets multiple times a year to review our diversity practices and to provide recommendations to the executive team.
This group focuses on:
- workforce representation;
- work environment;
- diverse customer markets;
- diversity practices, including training and organizational efforts to continually improve all aspects of diversity globally.
Employee caucus groups
Dating from the 1960s, independent caucus groups of employees continue to play an important role in our diversity story. Our caucus groups work with management to achieve common business objectives, self-advocacy and to create an environment of inclusion.
Seven caucus groups currently exist to address the concerns and meet the needs of our employees who are African-American; Hispanic; Asian; women; African-American women; gay, lesbian, transgender and bisexual; and military veterans.
Our Corporate Champion program matches senior executives with caucus groups to facilitate and maintain open communications.
Our Chairman and CEO and other senior leaders meet with internal, diverse teams. During these informal sessions, teammates share their views on the work environment and identify actionable items for discussion. This collaborative process ensures that our executive leadership team and our CEO work together to create an effective and inclusive work environment.
