Diversity, Inclusion & Belonging

Individually Strong, Collectively Powerful

Air Products brings together talented people to develop innovative solutions for the challenges that face us, our customers, and our world. This is part of our higher purpose, as is creating a first-class company where people belong and matter and enjoy coming to work and are proud of what they do.

Our past and future success rely on promoting collaboration among people of different cultures and backgrounds. We are expanding the Air Products family globally by growing in new geographies. As we grow in new regions of the world, we bring with us our diversity and inclusion values to some areas where the societal roles of minorities and women are still evolving.

We Stand Together

Message from Seifi Ghasemi:

We stand together against the disease of racism.

We stand together against the malady of hate.

We stand together in our shared humanity and equality.

We stand together on the fundamental right of every person to be treated with dignity and respect.

We stand together.

Diversity in Professional and Managerial Roles | Women (Global)-Baseline 25%, Goal 28% by 2025 2025 | Minority (US)-Baseline 17%, Goal 30% by 2025
*Air Products achieved its initial 20 percent goal set in October 2020 for minority representation in U.S. professional and managerial roles and in November 2021 set a new goal of 30 percent representation in these roles by 2025.

Raising the Bar for Diversity, Inclusion and Belonging

We will not rest on our success. After achieving a publicly-stated goal for U.S. minority representation in professional and managerial roles four years ahead of schedule, Air Products has moved the goal line. 

In October 2020, we announced a goal to achieve at least 20 percent minority representation from a 17 percent base level in our U.S. professional and managerial population by 2025. Having already reached this objective in 2021, Air Products set a new, ambitious goal to achieve 30 percent U.S. minority representation in these roles by 2025. This is yet another measurable, transparent step toward achieving our objective of becoming the most diverse industrial gas company in the world.  

Air Products has a broad operating scope and growing cultural landscape of more than 20,000 employees in over 50 countries. We are pleased with what we have accomplished and are excited to expand and grow our efforts. We will continue to report progress towards these goals and post future EEO-1 reports annually within sixty days following submittal of such report to the EEOC.

Cultivating an Inclusive Culture

"We need to create an atmosphere of respect for everybody, no matter where they come from. If you hire people who look like you, talk like you, and think like you, how do you find the unique perspective? How do you challenge the status quo if everyone on the team sees the world the same?"
- Seifi Ghasemi, Chairman, President and CEO
