MELBOURNE, Fla. -- L3Harris Technologies (NYSE: LHX) released today its third Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Annual Report, highlighting continued progress toward the company’s two major goals of developing a workforce that is half women and more than one third people of color, reflective of the communities where it operates.
The company uses the report as a yearly benchmark that measures diversity, equity and inclusivity. In 2022, L3Harris scored 100% on both the Disability Equality Index and the Human Rights Campaign Corporate Equality Index used to measure Fortune 1000 companies.
“Being the Trusted Disruptor starts with our people – brilliant innovators who bring unique backgrounds and experiences to the table,” said Christopher E. Kubasik, L3Harris CEO and Chair. “We are steadfast in our commitment to advancing our DE&I goals providing an open, diverse and inclusive workplace that stimulates innovation.”
The 2022 report noted increases in the company in both women and people of color among executives, new hires and new college graduates. Also highlighted in the report: the company’s employee resource groups are comprised of 18,000 total members; its employees registered more than 120,000 volunteer hours; and L3Harris achieved its first-ever Military Friendly Bronze designation.
“Our employee resource groups grew by nearly 3,000 members and we held our first-ever inclusion conference,” said Kirsten Wilkers, Vice President, Talent and Inclusion, L3Harris. “I’m proud of our progress over the last three years and look forward to building on it as we grow in 2023.”
