This means striving for equity for all. And it takes recognizing that we are better when we are inclusive of age, race, sex, nationality, gender identity, religious affiliation, sexual orientation, parental status, marital status, disability status, military service, and neurodiversity—plus all the other characteristics that make individuals unique. 

This focus propels us to do more and support organizations around the world fully committed to diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI). We offer continuous training to employees and have a firmly established DEI council that focuses on making meaningful change in our organization and around the world.
