Diversity, Equity & Inclusion (DEI)

Worthington understands the importance of bringing your full, authentic self to work. We celebrate our differences and welcome the unique perspectives of our teammates. Because we’re better when we embrace the full spectrum of our humanity.

Our Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Vision guides how we grow our workforce, shape our culture, and how we build sustainable relationships with our employees, customers, suppliers and communities.
