Diversity and Inclusion
The mission of ADI Diversity and Inclusion is to drive a culture that values and leverages the uniqueness of each employee so they may develop and grow at ADI. Diversity and Inclusion is an important business imperative not only to ADI but to stakeholders alike.
ADI demonstrates the integration of Diversity and Inclusion through its organizational structure. The Director of Diversity and Inclusion is also an HR director, who, during the reporting period, directly reports to the CPO (Chief People Officer) (previously SVP and Chief Human Resources Officer), an executive officer of ADI, demonstrating cross functional integration and access to the highest governing level.
Diversity and Inclusion Programs at ADI
ADI is committed to a work environment where employees are treated with respect and fairness. ADI does not discriminate in its hiring, promotion, employee compensation, or employment practices based on race, color, religion, age, nationality, social or ethnic origin, sexual orientation, gender, gender identity or expression, marital status, pregnancy, disability, military status, or other categories protected by applicable law. In addition, workers or potential workers at ADI are not subjected to medical tests that could be used in a discriminatory way.
Pay it Forward
A program open to ADI High Performing or High potential women to help with mobility into higher grades by providing a mentor. In exchange, we send them to different university programs to increase the pool size of female applicants, provide a female intern over the summer, and encourage the participants to find other ways to pay it forward—many volunteer with their local schools, participate in Girls that Code, etc.
Diversity Networks at ADI
Our Global Employee Networks connect professionals with one another and provide mentoring, learning, and development opportunities. They also give professionals access to role models that help them develop and advance. Employee Networks are voluntary, employee-led groups dedicated to fostering a diverse and inclusive work environment.
