GE supports and embraces diversity in all forms. Our business portfolio is as diverse as our workforce and we believe that diversity of thought contributes to a more inclusive and innovative culture, aligned to our company beliefs.
With more than 300,000 employees and operations in over 170 countries, GE employees reflect both the local communities we serve and the people with whom we do business. This is true for our region where we cover Australia, New Zealand and Papua New Guinea. We see diversity and inclusiveness as an essential part of our productivity, creativity, innovation and competitive advantage.
We consider this culture to be among our most important innovations. The success of diversity at the company is a reflection of the integrity of our leadership, and our commitment to promoting the power of a vibrant and varied workforce.
