#EmbraceDifference: Leading diversity in Europe

ABB was recently among more than 50 of Europe’s largest industrial and technological companies to sign the first pan-European commitment to diversity and inclusion.

Spearheaded by the European Round Table of Industrialists (ERT), of which ABB is a member, the pledge is designed to promote inclusion and diversity in the workplace, including:

1. An inclusive culture

Create an open and inclusive work environment where all individuals’ contributions are valued, their voices are listened to and respected.

2. Inclusive leadership

Establish diversity and inclusion as a strategic business imperative at all levels of an organisation visibly led by the “top leadership”, acting as role models.

3. Aspiration and goal setting

Set and maintain challenging but achievable goals and ambitions within the organisation.

 

4. Clear responsibility


Ensure that all managers are responsible for reaching diversity goals and ambitions and that they have appropriate oversight of strategies and initiatives to achieve them.

5. Equal opportunities


Review people policies, processes and practices, including recruitment, retention, development, remuneration and career planning to foster diversity and avoid any bias.

6. Societal engagement and responsibility

Contribute to bridging the skills gap by supporting the development of STEM and digital subjects in education. Focus on apprenticeships, dual learning (i.e. combined learning in schools and on the workfloor), and business-education partnerships especially for underrepresented groups.

How can we all reach our full potential? #EmbraceDifference!  Find out more about the initiative
