Johnson Controls has been named one of the 2021 Best Companies for Multicultural Women by Seramount (formerly Working Mother Media) – an honour recognizing companies that create and use best practices in hiring, retaining and promoting multicultural women in the United States.
Through its Diversity and Inclusion mission to empower every employee to take an active role in creating a culture that values uniqueness, celebrates creativity and drives innovation, Johnson Controls works to elevate each employee’s responsibility to contribute to its culture. Business Resource Groups (BRGs) are an integral part of the company’s overall workforce diversity strategy. Equally important are its corporate partnerships with global, national and local diversity and professional organizations.
Commenting on the company’s achievement, Denise Malloy, Vice President, Diversity and Inclusion for Johnson Controls, said, “The most talented women in the industry have chosen to develop their careers at Johnson Controls. We are honoured to be recognized as a leading company for multicultural women, particularly after a year of unprecedented challenges to women and working mothers. In order to continue to be the employer of choice that attracts and retains the absolute best talent, we must ensure we do not waiver on our commitment to create an environment of empowerment. This is central to our business which is why, in January 2021, Johnson Controls pledged to double the representation of women leaders globally and minority leaders in the United States within five years.”
