Our continued commitment to an inclusive culture.
Diversity and inclusion have been a part of Cummins' core values for more than 40 years dating back to our CEO, J. Irwin Miller, who led the Company until 1977. Miller believed in the power of listening. He wanted to hear from a wide variety of voices before reaching a decision, believing no single gender, race, or ethnicity had a monopoly on wisdom. But we know that diversity for diversity sake does not drive success; it is inclusion, or how we use diversity, that is key. Inclusion means that employees accept the diversity of their peers and make them feel welcome and safe in the workplace. It is only when we are inclusive that we work most effectively- relying on the differences and strengths of all our employees. We welcome multiple viewpoints and voices, and we embrace the diverse perspectives of all people and honor both with dignity and respect. Cummins has a number of women and minorities among its senior leaders and we continually work toward a gender-balanced workforce.
Supporting Diversity at Cummins.
More than 100 Local Diversity Councils and Affinity Groups help create the right environment for success at Cummins by promoting diversity and inclusion and lending their unique perspectives to identify opportunities that can enhance our business success.
Our Affinity Groups are open to all employees and are organized around single dimensions of diversity, such as race, ethnicity, country of birth, gender, sexual orientation, as well as broader themes, such as people with disabilities, veterans, and employees with less than five years of service. The groups focus on recruiting other talented individuals into Cummins as well as retaining our current pool of talented employees. The groups also focus on providing important cultural and business environment information to ensure Cummins’ success.
We are dedicated to the principles of equal employment and fair hiring practices. We believe that a diverse workplace promotes a culture of innovation and collaboration and is simply the responsible and right thing to do. We realize that the success of our company lies in our people. We embrace a diverse workforce and strive to provide an atmosphere that engages our employees, builds an awareness of responsibility while drawing on their ingenuity and empowering them to make a difference at work, at home, and in the community.
