Diversity and Inclusion
In order to sustain a global business, we have to create a workforce of the future. We must have a workforce that can execute our business objectives better than our competition. We will achieve this by creating an environment where employees can do their best work.
At the heart of our company are thousands of diverse employees worldwide who rely on their intimate knowledge of customer requirements and a unique blend of skill and innovation to develop and deliver the best possible products and services.
General Dynamics' commitment to diversity encourages inclusion of all people and fosters a work environment in which employees can perform their jobs and pursue their careers free from discrimination and harassment.
We are dedicated to the principles of equal employment and advancement of people based on their individual qualifications, skills and abilities. This commitment is supported by policies and procedures that foster a nondiscriminatory workplace. Guided by a rigorous code of ethics that is applied with integrity, these fundamental characteristics are reflected throughout our organization and are key components of the strength we deliver to our customers.
This inclusive culture has as its basis the following principles:
Treating people with openness, dignity and respect is paramount to sustaining and growing a culture of integrity in which everyone feels valued. General Dynamics is committed to nurturing this culture every day through our dealings with one another.
Appreciating differences involves respecting the underlying characteristics that make each of us unique. These differences include personal points of view, beliefs and ways of thinking, as well as tangible differences such as age, gender, ethnicity, national origin, physical ability, military experience, sexual orientation and gender identity, among others. General Dynamics recognizes that the best ideas and solutions are developed by gathering input from people who have these different perspectives as well as these tangible differences.
Equal Opportunity and Affirmative Action
The principles of equal employment opportunity and affirmative action are part of General Dynamics' commitment to integrity. We value the contributions that all individuals make to our company.
