Belonging Transforms

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 passion
Natalia Oropeza, Chief Cybersecurity and Chief Diversity Officer, Siemens AG

We take Pride in our inclusive workplace

This Pride month— and every month of the year — we celebrate and support our LGBTQIA+ community and allies. We strive for a workplace and a society where everyone can feel fully accepted, appreciated, safe and free to be themselves. At Siemens, you don’t have to leave your identity at the door. At Siemens, you can feel you belong.

We choose to challenge

Women have played a key role at Siemens since our company’s early days and remain vital to our success today. We are committed to strengthening gender equality and achieving the full empowerment of all women, not only in our organization but also in the societies we serve.

Our part in the continuing fight for racial justice and equity

Across Siemens, we believe we have a responsibility to stand up against injustice and inequality. We are committed to supporting our black ethnic minority employees by educating ourselves, listening, treating each other with respect and eliminating discrimination in all its forms. “Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere” – Martin Luther King Jr. This serves as an important reminder of the work we have left to do to be allies for and support one another.

Ability @ Siemens

For us at Siemens, disability inclusion is more than just accessibility. It’s a holistic mindset and a company-wide priority. We work every day to remove visible and invisible barriers and promote a culture of inclusion, awareness, understanding – to support and empower the disabled community.

Siemens supports #PurpleLightUp – a global movement that celebrates and draws attention to the economic contribution of the 386 million disabled employees around the world, as a mark of respect to the UN International Day of Persons with Disabilities (IDPD) held annually on 3rd December

In 2021, Siemens joined the Valuable 500 and committed to putting disability inclusion on our business leadership agenda.

A rich tapestry of different cultures

Just like the societies we serve; Siemens is itself a rich tapestry of diverse ethnicities and cultures. Cultural diversity fuels innovation, creativity and growth – all of which we rely on to transform the everyday. On World Day for Cultural Diversity 2021, we invited our people to share stories and photographs in order to celebrate and appreciate our different cultures.
