Diversity and inclusion have been a part of Cummins' core values for more than 40 years dating back to our CEO J. Irwin Miller who led the Company until 1977.
Miller believed in the power of listening. He wanted to hear from a wide variety of voices before reaching a decision, believing no single gender, race, or ethnicity had a monopoly on wisdom.
Today, Cummins has a number of women and minorities among its senior leaders including:
- Sharon Barner - Vice President - General Counsel
- Jill Cook - Vice President - Chief Human Resources Officer
- Ignacio Garcia - Vice President - Mexico ABO
- Richard Harris - Vice President - Chief Investment Officer
- Marsha Hunt - Vice President - Corporate Controller
- Marya Rose - Vice President - Chief Administrative Officer
- Sherry Aaholm - Vice President - Chief Information Officer
- Tracy Embree - Vice President - Cummins Inc.; President - Components Group
- Antonio Leitao - Vice President - Cummins Inc.; President - Power Generation Business
- Lisa Yoder - Vice President - Global Supply Chain and Manufacturing
With well over 50 percent of its sales generated outside the United States, Cummins has a clear interest in diversity. Senior leaders say the Company needs to reflect its increasingly diverse customer base, especially as it enters new markets.
Cummins commitment to diversity has been recognized by a number of organizations and publications. DiversityInc named Cummins to its list of the Top 50 Companies for Diversity for a ninth consecutive year in 2015.
For the 10th consecutive year, Cummins was awarded a perfect score in the 2015 Corporate Equality Index by the Human Rights Campaign, the largest U.S. civil rights organization for lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender employees with more than 1 million members and supporters across the United States. Cummins was one of 190 businesses to earn a perfect score.
