Kimberly-Clark was featured on Seramount’s annual Inclusion Index for the third consecutive year. The index recognizes companies that are leading the way in creating diverse and inclusive work environments.

“We believe that a diverse and inclusive workplace is essential to our business and key to our ability to deliver Kimberly-Clark’s purpose of Better Care for a Better World,” said Mike Hsu, chairman and CEO at Kimberly-Clark. “We are fostering a culture of inclusion that not only recognizes but values and leverages the diverse perspectives of our team around the globe.”

Seramount’s Inclusion Index, now in its sixth year, helps organizations understand trends and gaps in demographic representation, creates a road map to drive internal change and identifies diversity, equity and inclusion (DE&I) solutions to close the gaps. To compile the 2022 index, Seramount analyzed data provided by applicants in three key areas, including best practices in the recruitment, retention, and advancement of people from historically underrepresented groups.


“Kimberly-Clark is committed to creating an environment where all are included – one where our unique differences make us stronger as a team,” said Rich Del Viscio, the leader of PRIDE, Kimberly-Clark’s LGBTQ+ and ally employee resource group. “I am proud to work at a company where people can bring their authentic selves to work every day, enabling all of us to reach our full potential.”

Advancing inclusion and diversity is a key business objective for Kimberly-Clark that is embraced and driven by its global leadership team. Among the pillars of its strategy, Kimberly-Clark provides inclusive leadership training to help team leaders foster a work environment that welcomes, respects and values diverse voices and ideas.

“We are pleased to see corporations continue to focus on their DE&I efforts’ effectiveness by evaluating their accountability measures through precise metrics that pinpoint any challenges and create opportunities for next steps,” said Katie Oertli Mooney, Managing Director of Diversity Best Practices at Seramount. “We are proud to recognize our Inclusion Index companies for their progress and dedication to creating inclusive workplaces.”
