Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Drive Us
At Werner, we support and encourage the diverse voices and perspectives of our associates, our customers, and our suppliers. Diversity contributes to innovation and connects us to the many communities we serve. We commit to embracing these values as we move toward an increasingly inclusive culture where every associate feels empowered to bring their whole self to Werner.
Werner Enterprises takes tremendous pride in creating a culture that reinforces diversity, equity and inclusion. Associates are invited to join one or more Associate Resource Groups, or ARGs, to strengthen their sense of belonging and create meaningful connections within the Werner community.
Our diversity, equity, and inclusion initiatives have four main goals:
Attract, hire and retain diverse talent.
Grow and sustain our Associate Resource Groups (ARGs)
Solidify our commitment to DEI as part of our brand.
Equip leaders with the tools and knowledge needed to be inclusive.
Associate Resource Groups
Our Associate Resource Groups (ARGs) support our commitment to promoting and maintaining an inclusive culture for all associates by bringing together individuals from a wide range of backgrounds, experiences, and perspectives. These groups seek to foster a sense of shared community and empowerment for associates and allies who share and support a common social identity, such as gender, ethnicity, and sexual orientation. All Werner associates interested can join any ARG to network, discuss and exchange ideas and enhance their professional development.
