Action

  • Job descriptions – We revised the language in our employment listings to ensure that it is inclusive, reflects our global brand, and emphasizes our commitment to diversity.
  • Performance appraisals – Employee reviews now include questions on what associates have done to encourage and integrate diverse ideas into the company culture.
  • Health benefits – We clarified the language in our benefits plans to better communicate our pre-existing coverage of gender transition services to normalize the topic and create a safe work environment.

Goals

  • Maintain gender pay parity at all professional levels and geographic regions (2025).
  • 100% of Managers covered with unconscious bias training (2025).
  • Develop training and advancement opportunities to promote positive change for women (2025).
