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.

By the numbers

Investing in our people and our diversity programs makes us stronger, and our workforce and leadership have been recognized consistently among top brands for diversity and inclusion.
