Inclusion & Diversity

We are more together.

A culture of belonging.

At Fortive, we have a clear vision for inclusion & diversity (I&D): We all have a role in building a community where everyone belongs—where you can speak your mind, be yourself, and feel supported. It’s how we achieve more together—for each other, for our customers, and for the world.

EMPLOYEE & FRIENDS RESOURCE GROUPS

Activating a culture of inclusion.

At Fortive, employee and friends resource groups (EFRGs) activate a culture of inclusion and create space for all voices to be heard. They’re a powerful way to connect and learn more about change-making topics like code-switching, how to be an ally, and unconscious bias. We have 8 Fortive-wide and 19 company-specific EFRGs, and you’re empowered to start a new group for a cause that matters to you. All EFRGs are voluntary, employee-driven, and open to all.

Supporting employees with a personal commitment to inclusion and a desire to be an ally.
 

Strengthening inclusion for Asian and Pacific Islander employees.

 

Building a stronger community by attracting, retaining, and empowering Black employees.
 

Empowering LGBTQ+ individuals and allies to create a more inclusive and supportive workplace.
 

Helping our LatinX community achieve their full potential through inclusion and growth.
 

Empowering womxn by driving change through education, support, and intentional focus on equity.
