Inclusion, Diversity & Equity
Elevating a Culture of Safety, Inclusion and Community
Our employees have always been the foundation of our success. Our family-like environment strives to create a culture of inclusion, diversity and equity (ID&E) where employees should feel valued and accepted for who they are, and the unique perspective they bring to the workforce and workplace.
Fostering an Inclusive Culture
At Sherwin-Williams, we foster a culture where our differences are welcomed, celebrated and appreciated to positively impact our people and business. Reflected in our Code of Conduct and reinforced through our actions, training and attitudes, fostering an inclusive culture is a moral and business imperative.
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 workforce.

2021 Workforce Diversity Data
We also make available our most recently filed Federal Employer Information Reports EEO-1, representing employees as of December 2021. 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.
