There is significant strength in truth. Truth in science. Truth in numbers. Truth in the voices of our 3Mers, community partners and customers.
2020 pushed us mentally, physically and emotionally to places we never expected. We experienced an awakening and grappled with complex and challenging topics that required even more difficult conversations.
3M’s first-ever Global Diversity, Equity & Inclusion Report shares how 3Mers are speaking up respectfully about their experiences, pushing the world to change and giving their peers the room to pause, listen, understand and act with positive intent.
We also want to be more transparent about the diversity of our workforce and what the future holds at 3M. We know we need to take bigger, bolder steps so that our workforce will better reflect the diversity in our communities. As we build on our momentum, we have set new goals and standards that we will hold ourselves accountable to. Our people, shareholders, customers and future talent have high expectations that 3M, as a collective, will be a leader in influencing the change we want and need in our culture, both internally and externally. While we have made great progress, we know there is more to do.
Long-term change requires long-term commitment. We as proud 3Mers will rise to the challenge with science, ethics and the purpose of improving every life. Join me in reflecting on the past year and being an advocate for inclusion as we move forward with compassion, honesty and focus on a more equitable future.
