Shaping Diverse and Inclusive Teams

  • Share:

Kohler is stronger and more innovative when we nurture what makes each of us unique, allowing everyone to bring their best self to work and achieve their highest potential.

We believe in a safe and welcoming workplace where hate and discrimination have no place—ever. We treat one another with dignity and respect and are building diverse teams that reflect our customers and communities around the world. Our Code of Ethical Conduct reinforces our commitment to fairness and providing equal opportunity in all employment-related processes and programs, because it’s the right thing to do.

Our diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) programs are managed at a senior-management level through the Executive Leadership Diversity Board (ELDB), chaired by our Chair & CEO and composed of the Kohler Leadership team and key senior leaders. The ELDB implements our DEI programs and monitors our progress toward DEI goals focused around four pillars:

Balanced Teams

We aspire to build a balanced workforce, seeking to delight customers we serve and reflect the local communities of our businesses around the globe

Inclusive Culture

We are equally responsible for fostering a workplace that welcomes differences and encourages authentic conversations that inspire optimal performance and innovation

Diverse Suppliers

We work to develop a supplier base that uplifts and supports minorities, women, the LGBTQUIA+ community, veterans, and those who are disabled

New Markets

We curiously explore new markets around the world by approaching opportunities through diverse lenses and perspectives

At Kohler, we believe in the collective power of diversity. To challenge what’s possible and dare to be bold, we draw from each other’s differences to become more. We believe together we can make life better for our associates, our customers, and the communities around the world. Diversity, equity, and inclusion are where innovation begins—and creating for the future starts with empowering people who are as diverse as the world around us. —AJ Hubbard, Sr. Director – DEI
