Inclusion & Diversity

Every day, with every effort, we strive to welcome, hear, respect, and value everyone.

Inclusion and Diversity have been pillars of our global enduring values for a long time. While our racial equality pledge has a U.S. focus, it is rooted in our global values and many of the actions are mirrored in other parts of the world. The commitment is crystal clear: we will have a zero tolerance policy for racial marginalization within the company, one that will regularly be communicated across the entire organization.

We do recognize racial inequality is a much broader societal issue with a long history. While our actions focus on our “four walls” and our local communities, we hope that these actions will have a ripple effect on society at large.

Our strength at Whirlpool Corporation is in our differences.
