Cummins: Fostering Diversity and Inclusion Through Employee Engagement Initiatives
Cummins Inc. is pleased to announce recent honors recognizing its ongoing dedication to cultivating inclusive and supportive environments where every employee can thrive. These accolades include being named a Diversity Leader by the Financial Times for 2024, recognized as a Top Hispanic Employer by DiversityComm, awarded as one of the Best Places to Work in 2024 in Glassdoor's Employees’ Choice Awards, and receiving the Inclusion and Diversity (I&D) Impact Award from the World 50 Group.
Diversity and inclusion are fundamental values at Cummins. The company's leadership firmly believes that a culture of diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) drives innovation and success among employees, guiding the company's actions and contributions in communities worldwide.
Marvin Boakye, Vice President and Chief Human Resources Officer, expresses pride in these recognitions, stating, “At Cummins, we are committed to attracting, developing, and retaining a globally diverse workforce to tackle the challenges of today and tomorrow. Embracing diverse perspectives, insights, and skills is how we harness the power of differences."
Cummins has been named to the Financial Times Diversity Leaders list for the third consecutive year, ranking 145 out of 850 companies. This recognition is based on feedback from over 100,000 employees across 16 European countries, evaluating diversity and inclusion practices.
Recognized as a Top Hispanic Employer for 2024 by DiversityComm magazine, Cummins is acknowledged for its efforts in creating inclusive work environments that attract, develop, and retain diverse talent. This recognition underscores the company's commitment to placing DEI initiatives at the forefront of its business model.
In Glassdoor's Employees’ Choice Awards for Best Places to Work in 2024, Cummins earned recognition based on anonymous feedback from employees, highlighting its positive work environment.
Furthermore, Cummins received the 2024 I&D Impact Award from the World 50 Group, honoring its exceptional achievements in fostering inclusivity, equity, and diversity globally. The company's dedication to DEI progress serves as a benchmark for others, showcasing tangible evidence of improvement in corporate landscapes.

Cummins is committed to cultivating a workforce that mirrors the diverse communities where it operates globally. This commitment is evident through its extensive network of over 150 Employee Resource Groups, the Cummins Advocating for Racial Equity (CARE) initiative aimed at combating systemic discrimination, and engaging employee participation in events like Hispanic Heritage Month.

“These honors pay tribute to our current achievements in DEI, which is critical to a company’s success, and also serve to further inspire our future endeavors,” Boakye continues. “There is more work to do, and we are relentless in our desire to see a world and a workplace where all people are embraced for who they are, what they contribute, and what they aspire to achieve.”
