A driving force in our business is recruiting, developing and retaining a diverse, world-class workforce that reflects our global community. It is important to us that our people encompass diverse backgrounds, experiences and perspectives. We have created structures within our organizations and continually support inside and outside initiatives to promote diversity and inclusion. Not only is this the right thing to do, but it encourages fresh ideas and thoughts that stimulate creativity and provide outstanding innovation.
