Diversity & Inclusion

 
 
 

At DuPont, we understand that we can only truly fulfill our purpose with the full commitment, participation, creativity, energy, and cooperative spirit of a diverse workforce. 

Diversity and inclusion are central to our high-performing culture. Right now, from senior executives to early careers, we’re working to improve representation. We’re measuring our progress to see what’s working and what could be better. And we’re building practices and support systems like our Employee Resource Groups to address the needs of different people and help us all have the skills to foster inclusion.

 
 
 

“Each diverse perspective, idea and point of view we bring to the table fuels innovative thinking and problem solving. By building on what makes us different, we strengthen our company and create an environment where employees feel they can belong and excel.”

 

Claudia Jañez, Global Director of Diversity & Inclusion

Employee Resource Groups

Since the 1980s, our employee-led Employee Resource Groups have supported cultural affinities, helping us respect and embrace our differences and similarities.

Our Employee Resource Groups have helped cultivate a culture of acceptance where our employees feel not only accepted, but celebrated, at every level. Each group is actively sponsored by senior leadership, helping model and promote inclusive values and behaviors.

Employee Story: Shuilu Dar

 Returning to work after a major illness is always challenging.

For Shuilu, telling her story was difficult and brought back painful memories after she suffered a major stroke that threatened to dismantle her professional life completely. But she took a leap of faith to trust that people won’t judge her vulnerability. Watch her inspiring story of never giving-up and how she put her life back on track. “I’m proud of living it through and making a comeback - a more compassionate, strong and new me!”
