Ethnic Diversity

Ethnic Diversity Graph ESG 2020

We remain committed to building and cultivating a talent base that reflects our dedication to diversity and inclusion.

In March 2021, we launched a global process for employees to self-identify their ethnicity. This information will assist us in identifying specific areas of focus related to increasing ethnic diversity. Our response rate in the countries where we have more than 100 employees (U.S., Canada, Australia, the U.K. and Brazil) was 92%. Our results demonstrate our diversity.
