Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion

Safety science and our commitment to diversity, equity, and inclusion

As a global safety science leader, we embrace our responsibility to impact the planet positively by advancing our mission through collaborative research, standards development, engagement, and outreach.

When we connect people of different backgrounds, we can examine existing and emerging safety challenges from new angles. We encourage a wide range of voices to ensure our efforts reflect the full diversity of our world. The reasons to champion diversity, equity, and inclusion are self-evident: An inclusive world is a safer world. We strive to embody the perspectives of everyone we aim to protect — no matter who they are, what they look like, or where they live.

We are committed to creating a culture where every employee feels valued for who they are and what they bring to our mission of working for a safer, more secure, and sustainable world.

By promoting an open and inclusive approach to communication, collaboration, and decision-making, we invite our colleagues to imagine boldly and expand their perspectives.

Our actions help our colleagues feel connected to our purpose and to each other. In turn, they bring their talents, experiences, and unique ideas to advance safety science in the 21st century.
