For the eighth consecutive year, Cummins has been named to DiversityInc’s annual Top 50 Companies for Diversity list. With more than 1,200 companies submitting surveys for consideration, Cummins was named No. 15 on this year’s list. The rankings were announced during DiversityInc’s annual dinner held April 22, 2014 in New York City.
“It’s a nice recognition to how far along we are in our journey and the work that’s been done so far,” said Kelley Creveling, Executive Director – Global Diversity and Right Environment. “Valuing diversity is already a core part of who we are. Some other companies are very early in their journey – still struggling with getting buy-in and senior leaders involved. We’re fortunate to have exceptional commitment from our leaders and employees overall and that shows in our ranking.”
During the dinner, Cummins was also recognized for its work on LGBT issues, specifically for publicly speaking out against House Joint Resolution 3 (HJR-3), a proposed marriage amendment in Indiana.
“At Cummins, we want to create an inclusive work environment where the diverse ideas and perspectives of our employees drive innovation for solving tomorrow’s business challenges.”
– Tom Linebarger, Chairman and CEO
