Diversity & inclusion: Our values in action
Values in action
At FedEx, we’re as diverse as the world we serve. From Harlem to Hong Kong, from Sao Paulo to Sydney, the world of FedEx is all about connecting people, places and cultural diversity. To meet the needs of a diverse customer base, we reflect that diversity within our organization and celebrate it in communities around the world.
Our company was founded on a people-first philosophy, and respect for everyone has always been an everyday business practice. Our diverse workforce, supplier base and supporting culture all enable FedEx to better serve customers and compete in the global marketplace.

What we stand for
Diversity and inclusion at FedEx connects people and possibilities to deliver a better future for team members, customers, suppliers and communities.
Research proves there are many benefits for businesses that make diversity a priority and promote inclusion. But there’s another, far more important reason why we embrace diversity and inclusion: It’s simply the right thing to do.
