    Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion

    Gates is committed to creating an inclusive and diverse workforce, bringing together people of differing professional backgrounds, cultures, characteristics, and uniquities. We believe that our success is defined by our commitment to value all elements of diversity throughout our global organization, with our business partners, our strategies, and in our communities. Our working environment values and embraces our similarities and differences, such that employees feel safe, respected, empowered, and rewarded for being their authentic selves.

    “Here at Gates, we recognize the importance of diverse perspectives. We aspire to create a culture where we all feel valued, heard, and understood.”


    – Gwen Montgomery, SVP Global Human Resources, Gates Corporation. 

    Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Council 

    Gates is dedicated to growing our Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion efforts. That’s why we have created a DEI Council that is committed to building DEI resources, improving education, and supporting DEI programs throughout the company. The DEI Council has identified 3 business resource groups (BRGs) that are aimed to support different communities within Gates. These groups will be launched in 2023. 


    Business Resource Groups 

    Asian American 

    Gates celebrates our employees’ different heritages, and we want to create a space where people of all backgrounds feel accepted. Our Asian American BRG aims to create a community full of support for our employees who identify as having Asian American heritage. 


    At Gates, we celebrate our differences. That’s why we encourage conversation and activism every year during LGBTQ+ Pride Month. Whether it be encouraging employees to participate in local events every June, or through in-office events, we want everyone to feel welcome at Gates. 


    We are proud to work with U.S. service men and women who have served or continue to serve our country and align this with our commitment to giving back. We work tirelessly to help Gates veterans discover rewarding career opportunities across our global communities. We are here to help you thrive. 

    Roadmap to Success 

    Our history is rooted in moving forward and driven by our values. We move into the future committed to cultivating an environment where every employee is recognized and has an equal opportunity. Gates endeavors to be the best, and we know, this is only achievable with a diverse group of employees.
