As part of Stanley Black & Decker’s continued commitment to transparency and progress on our DE&I commitments and based on feedback from internal and external stakeholders, we publish our most recently filed U.S. Federal Employment Information Report (EEO-1). The data in the consolidated EEO-1 report is based on Stanley Black & Decker’s population in the U.S. in December 2020 and reflects Stanley Black & Decker’s U.S. workforce as of that time. The EEO-1 report requires that Stanley Black & Decker categorize employees into ten broad EEO-1 Component 1 Data Collection Job Categories. These categories do not necessarily match the job levels in which Stanley Black & Decker organizes its workforce and evaluates its diversity and inclusion data. Thus, meaningful comparisons between EEO-1 Report data and other descriptions of Stanley Black & Decker’s diversity statistics and disclosures may not be possible.
