Engaging Employees and Building Our Communities
We partner with organizations that support diverse talent to inspire future scientists, engineers and skilled technical workers to build a diverse pipeline today, and for the future. Here are some examples of our external diversity partners:

National Black MBA Association (NBMBAA)
The National Black MBA Association was conceived to help Blacks coming into the corporate sector, largely for the first time, share experiences and insights to help make the journey easier. By nurturing these new professionals, the organization helped early members navigate and, ultimately, succeed in unfamiliar and frequently challenging environments. It is those professionals who have reached back to bring up the next generation of Black professionals by providing coaching, guidance and mentoring.

Gulf Region Organization for Women (GROW)

This is done by sharing both qualitative and quantitative information related to female development, so that each participant can maximize the skills, capabilities and performance of women in their respective organizations.
Engagement with the Community
Air Products invests time, goods and services in the communities where we do business. Our employees work together as local ambassadors for our company. Engaging in STEM mentoring partnerships for girls in the U.K., building teamwork through social service clubs in South Korea, and providing much needed school supplies in the U.S. are some of the ways Air Products demonstrates the commitment we have in the communities where we live and work.
