Our approach to diversity, equity and inclusion is both part of a comprehensive strategy and a natural extension of who we are. We believe all have a part to play in creating a truly inclusive environment that affirms and encourages others to bring their whole selves to work.
Our Current Areas of Focus
Business Inclusion Groups
For over a century, Steelcase has aspired to fully live our core values, which include treating people with dignity and respect and acting with integrity. Our mission is to unlock human promise, which includes an accountability to improving diversity, equity and inclusion within our company and in the communities in which we do business.
Doing the Right Thing
Steelcase earned a perfect score of 100 points on the Corporate Equality Index, issued by the Human Rights Campaign Foundation, designating Steelcase as one of the “Best Places to Work for LGBTQ Equality” in the U.S. The company has received this top score in seven of the past eight years.
Leading with Purpose
We are human-centered company committed to fostering diversity and inclusion, dignity and respect. Former Steelcase CEO, Jim Keane, was a signatory of the Business Round table’s Statement on the Purpose of a Corporation, which highlights, "... investing in our employees. This starts with compensating them fairly and providing important benefits. It also includes supporting them through training and education that help develop new skills for a rapidly changing world.”
