Diversity, equity, and inclusion

Across our diverse, global team, every voice makes us stronger. When we listen to and learn from each other, there is no limit to what we can achieve together.


Diversity and inclusion are an important part of our commitment to a foster a fair, inclusive, ethical culture which all voices are heard and everyone has the opportunity to make their mark. We're committed to diversity and inclusion because it's the right thing to do - for our employees, and for our business and because we know it drives stronger results. Promoting diversity and inclusion is an important part of becoming a sustainable company.

We believe diversity encompasses more than gender, race, ethnicity or sexual orientation. An inclusive workplace values the perspectives, qualities and experiences that are different from our own. We’re a global company, with employees who live and work in more than 58 countries and speak more than 36 languages. With that geographic diversity comes a rich diversity of viewpoints, experiences and ideas.

For a number of years, we have worked to increase the number of women in leadership positions in our company. More recently, we’ve broadened our efforts to reach beyond gender diversity and ingrain inclusion as a value. We’re helping teams worldwide to explore how they can acknowledge and embrace the differences among our employees and leverage them as a competitive asset. We celebrate what makes us unique, and encourage every Avery Dennison employee to bring their distinct perspectives and passions to work every day.
