ABB is working to double the percentage of women managers across its offices to 25% globally by 2030. Currently, 12.5% of women occupied the role of a senior manager at ABB. However, the company aims to double this figure as part of its diversity and inclusion (D&I) agenda.
ABB committing to encourage and promote equality in terms of diversity, gender, abilities, generations, ethnicity, and LGBTQ+. The company will also provide its employees with training on leadership and also offer programs on development, mentoring, and learning interventions to ensure an inclusive culture.
The Company has recently reconfirmed their commitment to Diversity and Inclusion across Europe, as part of #EmbraceDifference. The Campaign is led by the European Round Table for Industry (ERT), and it aims to create an environment suitable for the promotion of D&I in the workplace.
The company has signed the Standards of Conduct for Business and accepted to follow its policies and practices with international standards on the human rights of LGBTI people and ensure that its suppliers do so. This will help them to tackle the discrimination against Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Trans, and Intersex People.
Also, the Company has tied up with Stonewall, the largest LGBT rights organisation in Europe, to develop a roadmap on LGBTQ+ for employees.
