In a year that brought many challenges to 3M and our communities all over the world, I’m so proud of the ways 3Mers have come together to support one another, engage in candid conversations and accelerate equity, inclusion and social justice both inside and outside 3M. At all levels of the company, 3Mers worked hard to advance our culture and ensure their colleagues feel a sense of belonging in the workplace.
In 2020, we asked our employees, community partners and experts across the country what we can do to further inclusion and equity in our organization and the communities where we live and work. We listened, took stock of where we are as a company and where we want to be, made some important steps — and are committed to taking more in the years ahead.
As a company, we want to contribute to a brighter future. In 2021, we will focus on moving the needle on our representation goals, continuing to deliver on our $50 million community investment and partnering with organizations dedicated to ensuring justice and equity. I think I speak for all 3Mers when I say that we look forward to making 3M and the communities we interact with more fair, equitable and inclusive than ever before.
We will continue to share updates as we work to progress equity in our company and communities, and we hope you will follow our journey.
