Gender Equality

Inclusion & Diversity is a core value at Whirlpool because we know that drawing from diverse points of view improves our products, services, our teams, and each other. Yet we recognise we are on an ongoing journey and are committed to new, bold goals and meaningful action to cultivate an even stronger, inclusive and diverse workplace, as well as in the communities where we work and live. Inclusion creates a culture of belonging, diversity makes us better.

Within our UK business we’re focused on being a great place to work and nurturing our talent to bring out the best ideas which is why we’ve been named as a Top Employer for 6 years running.

As the largest UK employer in the appliance manufacturing industry, both our Young Professionals and Women’s Network give groups within our business support, guidance and help as they develop their careers through the business.

Meanwhile, our EMPOWER program brings together our high potential female talent to provide them with developmental opportunities to help them grow into future leaders.

More female leaders will only make Whirlpool Corporation stronger. With millions of consumers using our products everyday around the world, our company benefits from a diverse employee base that mirrors those consumers we serve. This public pledge reinforces our commitment to Diversity & Inclusion which has been a core value of the company for decades.

Additionally, the DoItTogether campaign from our Indesit brand promotes gender equality and is focused on raising awareness of the inequality in housework as women continue to do the majority of household chores.
