The best possible performance requires the best possible talent. At Whirlpool Corporation, we bring our different experiences and backgrounds together to unlock new and relevant consumer solutions.

Whirlpool Corporation believes that all people matter, regardless of their nationality or language. Our values, work environment and company culture all seek to reward uniqueness. Great ideas and innovation come from combining the best of everyone’s differences. Celebrating diversity and including thousands of perspectives empower us to create products that blend in to every concept of home. We acknowledge our differences and celebrate the value these differences can make on our lives, our business and our community.

Whirlpool Corporation has always made integrity, teamwork, respect, diversity with inclusion and a spirit of winning our core enabler of our current and future success. We're proud that our workplace policies and culture honors differences and provides an environment where the strengths of diverse thoughts, reflective of a diverse society, bring value to our business.

Our commitment to diversity and inclusion is not just the right thing to do, but the smart thing to do.  A workplace focused on inclusion helps employees develop better solutions for customers and better results for our shareholders.

We have seven employee resource groups focused on projects that support our community, employees and business. They include the Whirlpool Women's Network, the Whirlpool Veterans Association, the Whirlpool African American Network, The Pride Network, the Whirlpool Asian Community, the Whirlpool Hispanic Network, and the Young Professionals Network.

Our efforts, through policy changes and corporate culture, are a small part of a bigger movement to continue to offer a workplace environment our employees can be proud of, and that helps businesses be more effective as well.
