Inclusion, Diversity & Equity (ID&E)
Elevating a Culture of Safety, Inclusion and Community
Our employees are the foundation of our success. We believe that our employees deserve to feel valued and appreciated for who they are and the unique perspectives they bring to our workforce and workplace. For more than 155 years, our family-like culture has continued to build on the ingenuity, passions and talents of our team members.
Fostering an Inclusive Culture
At Sherwin-Williams, we welcome, appreciate and celebrate differences, and believe that inclusion has a positive impact on our people and business. We believe that fostering an inclusive culture is a moral and business imperative. This is reflected in our policies, including our Code of Conduct, and reinforced through our actions, training and approach to conducting business.
Our continuous efforts to create a supportive, welcoming environment for everyone across our global footprint are the shared responsibility of all employees. We intentionally lead with inclusion to highlight our commitment to embracing and leveraging the diversity of our global workforce.

2022 Workforce Diversity Data
We also make available our most recently filed Federal Employer Information Reports EEO-1, representing employees as of December 2022. Please note the EEO-1 report uses federally mandated job categories that are broadly applicable to U.S. companies across a variety of industries and that differ from how we categorize jobs and measure our progress. We believe the data presented above and elsewhere on our website provide a more useful and meaningful reflection of the Company’s workforce diversity as it is more tailored to our organizational structure.
