A successful company for us is one that encompasses everyone.At Siemens we strive to transform the everyday for our customers, employees and society. Committing to this transformation means committing to Diversity, Equity and Inclusion. Diversity ensures that we reflect the communities in which we operate. Through Equity we ensure everyone has access to the same opportunities and is treated fairly. And, Inclusion is how we actively empower the voices of each and every individual. Through a spirit of Belonging we empower our people, finding untapped opportunities for everyone’s growth. Belonging enables the creation of technology with purpose. Belonging transforms.
While diversity and inclusion can mean different things to different people across different cultures, the importance of belonging is universal. Cultivating an environment where all employees feel like they belong is more than just our mission, it’s also our passionNatalia Oropeza, Chief Cybersecurity and Chief Diversity Officer, Siemens AG
