Our diversity makes us stronger

Inclusion and diversity council
Our executive Inclusion and Diversity council meets on a quarterly basis to track progress against our goals, and to identify new opportunities to create a more inclusive and diverse culture.
Employee Resource Groups
Employee Resource Groups (ERG) have a powerful influence on building awareness, change, and community. ERGs give a voice to groups who may otherwise be unheard and help elevate conversation and awareness around key issues. They create a sense of belonging and help us build a stronger, more diverse work environment. They take an active role in company priorities, employee engagement activities, and community service in the communities where we operate.
We recently relaunched our ERG community to bring together our affinity groups into a common framework. At year end 2019, we had 3,217 members enrolled into the groups and now have 5,215 members. This effort has reenergized our diversity and inclusion focus, and fostered closer connections between employees in communities around the world. Our ERGs sponsor programs to provide support and resources for their members and the company as a whole on topics such as wellness, mindfulness, and career development.

A global workforce
As an energy technology company with operations around the world, our global workforce is an important strength. More than 75% of our employees live and work outside the U.S. in 184 different countries. We believe in developing local leaders in the communities where we operate. 62.4% of our senior leaders and 47.7% of our senior executives live outside the U.S. This diversity of global perspectives makes our company stronger, more resilient and more responsive to our global customers.
Developing a diverse and localized supply chain
Baker Hughes values the importance and business value of cultivating a diverse supply chain, and ontributing economically to the communities where we operate. Building strong and diverse local relationships promotes economic development, supply chain resilience, and equitable societies.
spent with diverse suppliers and small businesses
In the U.S. we made strides to quantify and increase our spend with certified enterprises that are majority owned and operated by minorities, women, veterans, LGBT, and small businesses. In 2019, our U.S. spend with diverse suppliers and small businesses was $132M, a 13% increase over the prior year.
Internationally, we focus on increasing local content and local spend in the countries where we operate. Recently, we were awarded with the In Kingdom Total Value Add award in Saudi Arabia for “Best in Supplier and Small and Medium Enterprises Development”.
To achieve these results, we integrated supplier diversity tracking to a common system, established supplier diversity champions in each of our four product companies, and launched pilot programs to increase diverse supply of targeted commodities and repair materials.
