Diversity & Inclusion Overview

An inclusive culture at 3M is built on our Human Resource Principles – to respect the dignity and worth of individuals; encourage the initiative of each employee; challenge individual capabilities; and provide equal opportunity. 3M is continuously focusing on building and maintaining an inclusive culture.

"We are a very inclusive company and we are unified and inspired by a common vision."

- Inge Thulin, Chairman, President and CEO

Having a diverse global workforce helps us to generate more ideas which yield more innovative solutions. As global markets expand and more than 60 percent of 3M’s sales come from outside the United States, we rely on employees who understand the needs of diverse customers. Our goal is to reflect the diversity of our global customers, suppliers and channel partners, and build on each employee’s abilities to achieve greater customer satisfaction and accelerated growth.
