Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion

Win As One

To be at our best and provide innovative solutions, we foster an inclusive environment that welcomes all.

Our Commitment

We know that diverse teams drive better business outcomes and that standing together as one and having diverse knowledge and experience in our global teams allows us to collaborate with strength.

Our people shape Hillenbrand’s success – they are the designers, engineers, manufacturers, makers, and shapers that bring our products and brands to life. Every day, we unite to be our best to serve our customers, associates, shareholders, and communities by incorporating one another’s individuality and ideas.

Our DEI initiatives are overseen by our DEI Steering Committee, which is comprised of key executives who approve the strategic direction of our DEI programs. The Inclusion at Hillenbrand Council (IHI) is a cross-functional, diverse team of associates, who consult on DEI programs and develop and drive DEI actions across our company.
