United by shared values and beliefs

Diversity, equity, inclusion & belonging (DEIB) are wired into DHL's DNA.

The diversity of DHL's people mirrors the diversity of its customers and the communities it is part of. DHL promotes an inclusive environment – guided by mutual respect, openness, honesty, trust and cooperation – so that everybody feels accepted and can be their best every day.

"We all come from different walks of life with individual experiences, perspectives, and skills. Across all regions worldwide, we are working side by side united by our shared values and beliefs that define who we are," states the company.

At DHL, more than one in five middle and upper management positions is held by a woman. And the number is growing all the time. Across the Group, there are numerous programs to support and inspire female colleagues, ranging from networking events, career programs to talent pools. Not forgetting the 'Women at DHL Global Forwarding' initiative, which won a gold award at the internationally renowned Stevie Awards for Women in Business.
