Celebrating the Diversity of Our People―Air Products' Greatest Asset
In Honor of Black History Month & Women's History Month
Honoring Martin Luther King Day with Day of Service
Air Products employees have a long history of giving back to our communities through our time and talent. This culture is yet another way we fulfill our higher purpose of bringing people together to collaborate solutions that improve our world.
The fun and engaging virtual events were sponsored by Air Products’ Black Employees Resource Group (BERG), part of the company’s Inclusion Network which partners with leadership to create supportive communities that help attract and retain talent, raise cultural awareness, develop critical skills and competencies, and contribute to the company’s diversity and inclusion objectives.
Creating a Diverse Workforce
In October 2020, we announced a goal to achieve at least 20 percent minority representation from a 17 percent base level in our U.S. professional and managerial population by 2025. Having already reached this objective in 2021, Air Products set a new, ambitious goal to achieve 30 percent U.S. minority representation in these roles by 2025. This is yet another measurable, transparent step toward achieving our objective of becoming the most diverse industrial gas company in the world.
