In an Increasingly complex global marketplace, we recognize the importance of diversity at all levels of our Company. Diversity enables us to better understand and respond to the needs of our stakeholders, access a larger talent pool, and increase the effectiveness of our decision-making through a wider range of perspectives, experiences, concerns and sensibilities. Increasing diversity to reflect the customers and communities we serve is essential to maintaining our competitive focus and contributes to enhanced performance.
Company-wide diversity objectives and programs have been established across our business.
At the Board level, our Diversity Policy articulates our commitment to select qualified and diverse Board candidates. In 2015, we adopted a target to have at a minimum one-third of the Board represented by women. We also ensure our talent review succession planning for senior management positions meet our diversity goals.
