Diversity and inclusion

Our society is diverse and so are we

After all, we can only deliver the right solutions to our customers when we are representative of the world around us. Diversity and inclusion enables us to be more innovative, generate better financial results and attract and retain more talent. That makes it of strategic importance to any company that wants to stay relevant.

D&I is an integral part of who we are

Our journey as a company started with an ambition: to become a company that will last for 200 years. But remaining relevant for such a period of time, will only be possible if we are able to take good care of our employees, our customers, our partners and the broader world we live in.

That’s why our diversity and inclusion efforts tie in nicely with our overall company values of care, team spirit, commitment, respect and entrepreneurship.


at delaware, we aspire to create a culture where everyone feels respected, is able to grow and empowered to develop their full potential
