DIVERSITY, EQUITY & INCLUSION

At Cummins, diversity and inclusion is a core company value. Diversity and inclusion means our individual differences never have to be checked at the door. Our leaders have long believed that diversity creates a stronger and more competitive work environment, and ultimately helps us attract and retain top talent. Read more on our business case for diversity.

OUR BEST WORK IS TEAMWORK

Every day, our employees embrace our philosophy of inclusion and equity by operating across cultures, functions, language barriers and time zones to solve the technical and logistical challenges created by the complexity of our growing, global business.

CUMMINS ADVOCATING FOR RACIAL EQUITY

At Cummins, we have a history of standing up for what is right, even in the face of adversity. Our leaders championed the Civil Rights movement in the 1960s and we stood up against Apartheid in the 1980s. Yet, it pains us that we still have such deep-rooted racial and structural inequality in our communities. And it saddens us that despite decades of discussion and promises of change, America has not made enough progress.

To address this and more, we have created the Cummins Advocating for Racial Equity Management Review Group (MRG) which is committed to using our power, resources, voices and our roles as business leaders to create change in the following areas:

SOCIAL JUSTICE

We will engage with Black-led groups and civil liberties organizations to listen to their issues and to support them both financially and with resources and skills within our respective companies.

ECONOMIC EMPOWERMENT

We will support minority-owned businesses in our communities. Minority-owned businesses are a crucial component of how we create opportunities and for all.

POLICE AND CRIMINAL JUSTICE REFORM

We will support efforts to improve the criminal justice system and improve engagement between the police and all members of our communities.

"I AM BLACK. I AM A MOTHER."

“We see our sons and daughters in George Floyd, Dreasjon Reed, Breonna Taylor and so many others. On the other side of our sorrow, anger and despair, we dig deep to unleash our unrelenting commitment to fight injustice, tell our stories and build allies.”

SHARON BARNER
Vice President and General Counsel, Cummins Inc.

"WE CAN NO LONGER BE SILENT OR SIT ON THE SIDELINES"

According to Tom Linebarger, Cummins Inc. Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, “We each have a role to play in calling for greater accountability from our government, from law enforcement, our neighbors and ourselves. We need to raise the bar and hold ourselves to a higher standard. What we have today is simply not good enough. We need to work together to root out hate and replace it with a deep and abiding appreciation for diversity, equality, and inclusion. It starts with us. And we cannot wait.”

GENDER EQUITY

BUILDING BETTER WORKPLACES BY BREAKING DOWN BARRIERS

At Cummins we’re committed to empowering women and providing platforms and opportunities for them to succeed and excel. We enact a number of initiatives to increase the representation of women within our business, and bring greater gender balance and equity into our workforce and communities at all levels. Some examples include:

  • Cummins Women in Technology Initiative and Conference
  • Focusing on gender balance during recruitment
  • Reducing the gender pay gap
  • Inspiring the next generations of engineers with a suite of STEM programs designed for girls
  • Empowering women through the through the Cummins Women's Empowerment Network, an employee resource group (ERG)
  • Providing a variety of flexible working arrangements, and enhanced parental benefits including an extended paternity policy

CUMMINS TECHNICAL WOMEN INITIATIVE

The Cummins Technical Women Initiative fosters a diverse and inclusive environment for all technical employees and seeks to inspire future generations of women in STEM fields.

Women are only 20 percent of U.S. engineering undergraduates. In other parts of the world, this number may even be smaller. Cummins is making special efforts and strides to improve gender diversity in the engineering field.

CUMMINS POWERS WOMEN

Building prosperous communities has been part of who we are since our company’s founding. We are proud to continue this legacy with Cummins Powers Women, our most ambitious community initiative ever. An $11 million (and growing) global grant commitment to engineer solutions to gender inequality, the investment supports a range of effective programs, including grassroots teaching and mentoring, financial advancement through entrepreneurship, leadership training and strategic guidance to nonprofit leaders.

In its first two years, Cummins Powers Women has impacted more than 100,000 people and resulted in eight laws or policies promoting gender equality - and we're not stopping there.

HEAR FROM OUR VETERANS

At Cummins, we appreciate all that our servicemen and women have done for our country and we consider it our honor to extend meaningful career opportunities to them once they separate. Here’s what some of our veteran employees had to say about Cummins and their careers:

“After my time in the military, I really wanted to be part of a company and environment that shared the same values and actually demonstrated them in the things they do. The Cummins values are not just words on a poster; they actually mean something.”

JILL WEILER
Communications Specialist

“Both Cummins and the military require advanced technology to remain best-in-class. Adopting and gaining proficiency in new technologies is both challenging and exciting.”

MATTHEW MUNGER
Design Integrator
 

“In the military, I learned to be flexible, open to growth, and adapt quickly to change. Cummins provides that same type of diversity in your career path. You can be hired in for one position and wind up in a totally different role and department.”

GENEVIEVE CURRY
Recruiting Coordination Team Leader

“The Naval Academy taught me that leadership is all about putting others first. And my time and experiences serving as a Navy Diver solidified my passion to serve others in all parts of my life today – not just my teammates at work, but our customers, people in the community and my family.”

ZACH GILLEN
Executive Director Global Mining Market 

“I had a mentor who understood the value I could bring to Cummins and helped me speak their language. Now, I help other veterans with planning their resumes and communicating why they can make a difference here.”

MATT WEILHAMER
Global Security Director
