Emerson’s Response to Racial Inequity 

Emerson condemns racism and discrimination in all of its forms. As a global organization, we’ve seen firsthand the energy and innovation that comes from encouraging and honoring diverse perspectives and backgrounds. Having an inclusive workforce that reflects the world and industries we serve is critical to living our value of Support Our People.

We are committed to advancing the communities where we live and work, and to helping remove barriers so that more of our neighbors can succeed. Emerson has a long history of investing resources to help address inequities and create opportunity, and our dedication to inclusion is stronger than ever.

Emerson’s leadership team is working in close partnership with our Black Employee Alliance Employee Resource Group, as well as industry groups such as the National Association of Manufacturers, to identify ways we can be part of the solution to this important issue.
