Diversity & Inclusion

Essential to Reach Our Full Potential

View our current career opportunities to ignite your full potential.

At ITW, we strive for everyone to reach their full potential and we value the unique and diverse perspectives that make all of us better together.

To reach our full potential it takes all of us – and that’s why we value the unique perspectives, experience and ideas that our colleagues contribute across our entire enterprise. We believe we are at our best when we create an environment where people are heard, valued and engaged. We create diverse and inclusive (D&I) workplaces where everyone can perform to their full potential, grow their careers, and enhance ITW’s workplace culture.

Dedicated Leadership

We are committed to fostering an inclusive and diverse work environment where our colleagues feel comfortable bringing their unique backgrounds, skills, and experiences to the workplace and feel a sense of belonging… and our commitment starts at the top.

ITW Chairman and Chief Executive Officer Scott Santi joined the leaders of over 500 companies in support of the CEO Action for Diversity & InclusionTM – the largest CEO-driven business commitment to advance D&I in the workplace. Through this commitment, ITW agrees to work collaboratively across our enterprise and take concrete actions to advance D&I.

“We are committed to diversity and inclusion because it is the only way that we can be the best ITW we can be. Our ability to deliver best-in-class performance over the long term is dependent on the quality, depth and diversity of our workforce.”

Scott Santi, Chairman & CEO

ITW’s talent strategy is bolstered by a strong leadership commitment focused on achieving our D&I ambition.

The Diversity & Inclusion Council (D&I Council), comprised of ITW’s executive leadership, developed our D&I Framework, the guiding principles for all ITW divisions to support and sustain our commitment to D&I. The D&I Council remains dedicated to executing the framework, supported by leaders who visibly demonstrate their commitment to D&I. Learn more about our commitment to D&I in our Corporate Social Responsibility Report.
