Our Employee Resource Groups reflect the diversity of our workforce and help develop our affinity groups. Our ERGs are global, visible and sponsored. Through five strategic working areas – education and awareness, professional networking, community outreach, business partnering and strategy execution – we ensure alignment to Carrier’s long-term vision of inclusion.
Our ERGs operate with a formal leadership structure, including a steering committee, senior leadership sponsorship and a defined mission statement aligned with supporting Carrier’s business strategy. Our employees create and lead grassroots efforts to solve problems and boost member development through programs such as mentoring and career advice events. Since 2020, approximately 2,000 employees across our global footprint have joined an ERG.
ERG initiatives include business initiative advising, Day of Understanding, holiday observances, mentoring programs, recruitment fairs, roundtable discussions, university partnerships and “In My Shoes” communication campaigns to share personal experiences and foster deeper appreciation
