At Emerson, our vision for diversity and inclusion is to foster a culture where every employee is valued and respected for their experiences and perspectives. We believe a diverse and inclusive work environment contributes to the rich exchange of ideas that inspires innovation and brings the best solutions to our customers. This philosophy is fundamental to our ?values and our responsibility to leave the world in a better place. ?
Emerson condemns racism and discrimination in all of its forms. As a global organization, we’ve seen firsthand the energy and innovation that comes from encouraging and honoring diverse perspectives and backgrounds. Having an inclusive workforce that reflects the world and industries we serve is critical to living our value of Support Our People.
We are committed to advancing the communities where we live and work, and to helping remove barriers so that more of our neighbors can succeed. Emerson has a long history of investing resources to help address inequities and create opportunity, and our dedication to inclusion is stronger than ever.
Emerson’s leadership team is working in close partnership with our Blacks Reinforcing Diversity Employee Resource Group, as well as industry groups such as the National Association of Manufacturers, to identify ways we can be part of the solution to this important issue.
We are proud of our people. We encourage employees to think big, ask the hard questions and challenge conventional thinking – without the fear of failure. Great ideas come to life when people can share their talents and ideas openly. That's why we are committed to creating a culture of respect and acceptance where every Emerson employee - and their innovative ideas - can thrive.
"Starting within our own walls and extending out into our communities, creating a culture where all people can do their best work is core to living our Emerson values and leaving the world in a better place."?
- Vice President of Diversity and Inclusion
"Diversity is one of the reasons that I really like working at Emerson. As a female engineer, a great female role model is something that I’ve always looked for. My manager is a woman. My VP is a woman. And they’ve been great role models to me just to see what you can do here at Emerson as a woman."
"A big strength at Emerson is really the diversity of the teams that you work with, the kind of people that you engage with, where they come from, what their experience has been, and how much time they’ve spent doing what they have been."
"As soon as I joined Emerson, I was immediately connected with veterans through the Veterans Employee Resource Group. The group helps a lot with veterans through their transition, because there’s a lot of similarities to the military with Emerson’s Noble Causes: a higher purpose. All of the skills and the things you learn in the military really make it easy to be successful here."
"As we’ve started the Employee Resource Groups, they’ve gained lots of traction. People are very interested in not only just going to work and working, but also having a community that they feel like they're a part of at the office. And that’s really important."
We recruit candidates for our MBA Leadership Program through our partnership with the Consortium for Graduate Study in Management, the nation’s largest diversity network which seeks to reduce the underrepresentation of African Americans, Native Americans and Hispanic Americans in education and business by linking corporate partners with top-tier students.
Emerson was one of the first companies to become a Consortium corporate partner and participation has become a cornerstone of our MBA program. We regularly attend Consortium-sponsored job fairs and conducts interviews at their annual conference.
We are proud to support the communities where we live and work across the globe.
