Our principles

Across C.H. Robinson, we embrace diversity and strive to give everyone access to the same opportunities. We do this through a set of principles that guide our day-to-day work:

  • Social and racial inequalities exist; so we work to remove barriers to success for all.
  • DEI is embedded in our values and we will continue to integrate into all aspects of our business to ensure long-term, sustainable change.
  • Our differences make us stronger and better able to meet the needs of our customers, carriers, people, and communities. 
  • Every employee plays an active role in creating a culture of inclusion and belonging where all people can contribute and thrive.

Employee Resource Groups

Our Employee Resource Groups (ERGs) are company-supported, employee-led groups that focus on historically underrepresented dimensions of diversity in business. We have also created resources for those interested in starting additional groups or chapters. Current ERGs include B.L.A.C.K., LatinX, Pride, and Women.
