We cultivate the talent of our workforce of almost 21,000 employees by focusing on our people as career investors. We believe grounding our efforts in our noble purpose - making the benefits of technology accessible to all - attracts, retains, and unifies the kind of people who thrive at Arrow.
Every employee that makes up Arrow's diverse footprint is selected for their unique ability and background. But we believe we all have one thing in common: the collective commitment toward creating an innovative workplace.
Developing technology solutions that improve business and daily life, Arrow Guides innovations forward for the worlds leading technology manufactures and service providers.
We believe in work that elevates career opportunity. With our perspective of “Five Years Out,” we are a community of continuous learners. Our talent platforms, products, and services cultivate the capabilities of our workforce throughout the organization. And, by augmenting our team with external talent acquisition, we further expand our portfolio of capabilities. Growing from the ground up, our focus on early career talent continually infuses diversity and new ways of thinking and doing into our workforce.
In 2015, we set a multi-year growth goal to increase gender diversity globally. We knew that talent could be found and developed wherever we chose to look and invest. Today, women make up 42.4% of Arrow’s nearly 21,000 employees, an increase from 41.1% in 2015. Our global gender representation exceeds the global total available talent market for women in Arrow’s geographical and occupational profile (our benchmark), which is 40.7%. Furthermore, Arrow has a consistent gender distribution across the globe, with less than 1% variance in gender equality across our three major regions – Americas (AMER), Europe/Middle East/Africa (EMEA), and Asia Pacific (APAC).
While Arrow’s global women share representation is higher than our benchmark, we are not yet done with our efforts to improve.
Arrow is committed to growing global share representation of women leaders, via both short-term and multi-year goals for representation that is consistent with overall Arrow global gender diversity share. To this end, we have established quantitative goals to grow representation of women leaders globally by 0.5 percentage points in 2022 and by two percentage points by 2025. Business leaders have similar goals based on the specific demographics of their organizations to drive the overall company results.
