Diversity and Inclusion

As a global business, we see strength in diversity. Not just in terms of gender, race, religion, age, disability, sexual orientation, national origin, or any other characteristic protected under law. But all the differences that make us unique individuals.

The diversity of our people mirrors the diversity of our customers and communities we are part of. We promote an inclusive environment – guided by mutual respect, openness, honesty, trust and cooperation – so that everybody feels accepted and can be their best every day.
