Diversity

diversityFedEx was founded on a people-first philosophy, where respect for all people is a fundamental value and everyday business practice.

FedEx is made up of more than 300,000 team members from various walks of life, reflecting the value and attention we place on diversity. Our diverse workforce, supplier base and supporting culture enable FedEx to better serve our customers and compete effectively in the global marketplace. We strive to create an environment where people can contribute and grow, and where the values of diversity are woven through our organization.

We embrace diversity as essential to our continued success in today’s ever-changing global marketplace. And we value its role in helping us achieve exceptional service for our customers and rewarding opportunities for our employees.

More than 40 percent of our U.S. workforce and 28 percent of our management team are minorities. We have been honored with the Champion of Diversity Award from the New York Urban League and as one of the top 40 companies for diversity by Black Enterprise magazine, and one of the top 50 employers by Minority Engineer magazine.  
 
Additionally, we have been honored by Pink magazine as a great place for women to work. Pink magazine placed FedEx in its Elite Eight due to the number of women in executive positions.
 
We have six affinity groups that include African-American, Asian, Hispanic, cancer-support, women, and lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) employee networks. The affinity groups celebrate diversity and promote cultural education.
 
FedEx also maintains a Corporate Diversity Council that focuses on a global culture of diversity and inclusiveness. The Council works to ensure greater employee awareness and positive perception of FedEx’s diversity commitment, and supports multicultural programs within the company and communities we serve. The Council has earned a notable reputation in the marketplace for its best practices in making diversity a priority from management to the front line.
 
Diversity Mission Statement

Supplier Diversity
We are committed to helping minority, women-owned and small-business suppliers access the FedEx supply chain. We contract directly with minority and women-owned businesses that are competitive in quality, service and cost. In addition, we encourage the inclusion of minority-, women-, and small-owned businesses within the subcontracting plans of our entire supplier base.
