A thriving and inclusive workplace is foundational to our success. That’s what attracts and amplifies the talents, perspectives and experiences of all our people.
This is what we stand for and who we strive to be. As we act on racial and gender equity, our focus remains on the inclusion of our employees. Together, we inspire, grow, and thrive.
We continue to build out our Diversity, Equity & Inclusion (DE&I) infrastructure, globally, regionally and within our businesses—for scalable impact across our enterprise. Our Employee Resource Groups (ERGs) continue to serve as catalysts for unique development, mentoring and networking opportunities and allow employees to extend our reach directly into communities across the globe.
As we strive for equity across our global footprint, our revised 10-point racial equity roadmap will now reflect our plan to donate at least $10.5 million by 2027 to strategically aligned racial equity-related organizations.
“Stanley Black & Decker understands that DE&I is essential for fulfilling our purpose and being a sustainable company where the most talented people can thrive. We are excited about the possibilities, encouraged by our progress so far, and eagerly working to shape our future, together.”

Integrating DE&I Into Community Efforts
At Stanley Black & Decker we realize this work is not accomplished alone, and through many essential external partnerships, we are expanding our support for equity beyond the walls of our company. We've established meaningful connections with dozens of nonprofit organizations focused on creating equity and contributing to the communities in which we live and serve by providing in-kind donations, community service hours and customized support across multiple disciplines.
We have also created and implemented RISE – Reach, Inspire, Support, Engage - a comprehensive approach to race and gender equity. This internal program consists of two pillars: Community: engaging students from local community partners and College: engaging with Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCU) Scholars.
Sometimes numbers speak louder than words.
See our progress.
