Fostering an Inclusive Workplace for Everyone's Success

Our higher purpose includes bringing people from all walks of life together to collaborate and innovate solutions to the world’s most significant energy and environmental sustainability challenges. To realize this vision, we must foster an inclusive culture where we embrace our differences, seek out diverse perspectives and where all employees know they belong and matter.

Leadership Development

We continue to invest in the unique needs of diverse talent by providing our “Leadership Development Program for Diverse Talent,” featuring inclusive leadership modules in our development programs for new and experienced managers and through unconscious bias training for leaders and hiring managers. These programs explore why diversity and inclusion matters, the role of leaders in achieving our D&I goals, the five key elements of inclusive leadership and how to take intentional action to counteract unconscious bias. We explore, through coaching and video demonstrations, how unconscious bias may influence hiring, coaching and development and who we listen to and praise.  

These efforts contribute to increasing the representation of women and diverse talent at Air Products as we strive to be the most diverse industrial gas company.
