Diversity and Inclusion
Be Different. Be Authentic. Pioneer together.
Our vision at Dyson is for everyone to use their differences together - to innovate, solve problems and create world-changing technology.
Celebrating our differences
"Dyson technology is characterised by its differences. The unique way in which we invent and sell technology is what sets us apart. And this is only possible thanks to the unique people who make up our global workforce, making Diversity and Inclusion such an integral part of our business and the future of Dyson"
Melissa Mejia Polanco - Global Diversity, Inclusion and Belonging Director.
Our global strategy
We are on a journey to embed diversity, inclusion and belonging into everything we do. We are focusing on many areas including building inclusive teams, diversifying our workforce and putting Diversity and Inclusion at the forefront of our business. The actions we take are driven by Dyson’s senior leadership team and our regional Diversity and Inclusion taskforces around the globe.
We need more women in engineering
At Dyson we are pleased to see positive progress. We've increased the representation of women on our Executive Committee by 37.5% over the past year. In the most recent cohort of the The Dyson Institute of Engineering and Technology, 41% identify as female, compared to a national average of 15.1% on engineering university courses. And for the last three years, the global James Dyson Award winners have been pioneering young women. To celebrate this year’s International Women in Engineering Day, we asked some of our female engineers to share their experiences in the industry.
Life inside Dyson
None of what we do at Dyson would be possible without our Pioneers – our employees and the many groups and networks that exist because of them. These include, women’s networks, EMBRACE, Neurodiversity Network and Proud LGBTQ+ networks. Together we celebrate our differences, to drive inclusion, by supporting our employee communities in fulfilling their missions and achieving their goals.
