Our D&I Ambition Statement

SEE YOURSELF IN FMC, BE YOURSELF IN FMC
At FMC, we strive to be an inclusive workplace where our employees reflect the community, are valued, find purpose in their work, and grow and contribute to their fullest potential.

"Diversity & Inclusion is critical for everyone to feel engaged and have a sense of belonging. It matters not only for current employees but also for the next generation of employees. It is a key differentiator for us. We focus on Diversity & Inclusion, not just because creating a diverse and inclusive workforce is the right thing to do, but because it makes sound business sense. It is important for our future success.”
- Mark Douglas, President and Chief Executive Officer

"Our progress is exciting, but with each new year our journey evolves and we must recalibrate our efforts to avoid complacency. Success only means we must raise the bar, identify new opportunities, and embed diversity and inclusion deeper into our organizational culture.”
- Subarna Malakar, Director and Global Diversity & Inclusion Officer

Regional Inclusion Councils

To expand the Diversity & Inclusion strategy further into the organization, we launched three Regional Inclusion Councils in 2019. The objectives of the Inclusion Councils are to:

  • Translate the global diversity and inclusion strategy into regional action plans
  • Unify and focus region-wide efforts on D&I and engage Employee Resource Groups (ERGs)
  • Focus and align local diversity needs to our business success

Inclusion Month

FMC dedicates the month of October to provide awareness, education, and engagement to employees and commemorate its ongoing commitment to Diversity & Inclusion. Each week of the month, FMC hosts events at regional sites as well as global broadcasts from FMC Tower for all employees to attend. Speakers featured throughout the month engage with employees about real-life experiences on their journeys to becoming advocators for diversity and inclusion.

Inclusive Leadership Sessions

FMC values employee diversity and aims to foster an inclusive environment in which all employees with different backgrounds and experiences are valued, respected and encouraged to contribute to their fullest potential. One of the ways we do that is to build the competencies of managers and employees to advocate inclusive behavior in our organization. In these sessions, our employees learn about the benefits of inclusive leadership, including the positive impact it can have on employee engagement, innovation and creativity.
