Each year, our U.S. employees have the opportunity to learn about a different aspect of diversity through computer-based training. Topics range from diversity and inclusion in the workplace to dimensions of diversity. In addition to the individual training, leaders conduct discussions with their teams to help uncover learning opportunities and promote an atmosphere in which everyone is comfortable sharing his or her ideas. Our leaders also attend instructor-led courses on a variety of topics to further ensure an inclusive workplace.
Mentoring relationships are highly encouraged for all employees at Rockwell Collins. Whether an employee chooses a mentor in the United States, from somewhere beyond our domestic borders, in one of our seven employee networks, from among our executive talent or by seeking out someone in a role he or she hopes to attain, mentoring is one of the best resources to help drive individual career development.
When we’re looking for new talent to join our team, we work to ensure that our workforce reflects our marketplace. Our visible commitment to the communities in which our employees live and work helps us attract a diverse and talented workforce. By supporting educational, arts and cultural organizations, we strengthen our communities and provide development opportunities for our employees. This involvement helps us gain greater access to sources of talent and the counselors, faculty members and professors who are influencing our future leaders.
