We strive to build and nurture a culture where inclusiveness is a reflex, not an initiative. Where there is a deep sense of pride, passion and belonging that transcends any role, business unit, language or country. And where all employees feel valued, heard and positioned to do their best work every day.

We know that our business ambitions are achievable only if we rely on the unique ideas, perspectives and backgrounds of our talented people around the world – and foster an environment where that diversity can thrive. Our values support our commitment and articulate the expectations we have for each other in a complex, ever-changing world.


Our leadership team is committed to setting the right example. President and CEO Jim Loree was among a group of prominent CEOs to sign on to the CEO Action for Diversity & Inclusion, and nearly 400 of our top leaders joined him in committing to take action “to cultivate a trusting environment where all ideas are welcomed, and employees feel comfortable and empowered to discuss diversity and inclusion.”

We are also part of the Business Roundtable Diversity & Inclusion Index, where the largest U.S.-based employers are committing to building a more inclusive environment, where everyone is valued and all ideas are heard.


Jim Loree - Stanley Black and Decker President and CEO

"We see the potential for our business to be an incredible force for good and that’s why we strive to create value beyond profits, including environmental and social value, generating a positive impact for our shareholders and stakeholders, as well as for society at large."

Jim Loree, President & CEO

In addition to our leadership commitment at all levels, our Employee Resource Groups play a significant role in collaboration and innovation – empowering others by providing networking opportunities, improving representation across the business, and promoting career advancement. We have thousands of employees involved in ERGs who have not only advanced our D&I agenda, but who have also contributed significant time, talent and treasure to the communities where we live and work. And we’re just getting started. Employees around the world are united behind our goal to empower 10 million makers by 2030.
