DUBLIN, October 19, 2023 /3BL/ - Intelligent power management company Eaton (NYSE:ETN) has released its 2022 Global Inclusion and Diversity Transparency report, the third in as many years. The report makes a business case for inclusion and diversity (I&D) at Eaton while detailing the company’s progress in achieving its aspirational goal, which is to be a model of inclusion and diversity in its industry. Highlights include:

  • More than two-thirds of the board of directors are now either women or U.S. minorities while 57% of the global leadership team is U.S. minorities.
  • Growth in spending with diverse suppliers increased from $698 million to $906 million.
  • As a result of a revised criminal background review process, the number of second chance hires passing post-offer criminal screenings rose from 81.3% to 82.4%. 

“We are committed to ensuring that all employees at Eaton have the opportunity to thrive by providing equitable access to growth and development,” said Nicole Crews, director, Global Inclusion and Diversity, Eaton. “Our culture grows stronger by ‘unleashing’ the proven benefits of I&D—the diverse ideas, experiences and perspectives that challenge our way of thinking and enable us all to flourish.”
