Women in STEM.
We have endless opportunities for women in science, technology, engineering and math fields who are starting their careers or looking for their next opportunity. We developed the “Coolest Women in the World” program. This program allows women in the HVAC industry to connect and we are constantly looking for new ways to recruit women and encourage you to apply for any of our open positions.
We Are Committed.
At Johnson Controls, we build a culture of diversity and inclusion through accountability, including CEO-approved diversity goals, regular executive review of our results, and behavior-based efforts such as coaching/mentoring, leadership development, succession management and diversity leadership summits. Female executive representation was 22 percent globally.
We also have long understood the value of diversity and inclusion. It is present in everything we embody – from our values to our Leader Expectations Model. Building on this history, our leadership is moving diversity and inclusion beyond a foundational value to a business imperative.
Our dedication to diversity and inclusion (D&I) starts with our values. We lead with integrity and purpose, focusing on the future and aligning with our customers’ vision for success. Our high-performance culture ensures that we have the best talent that is highly engaged and eager to innovate.
Business Resource Groups (BRGs)
We actively engage employees in our diversity and inclusion strategy. Our nine Business Resource Groups with 67 chapters around the world connect employees with similar experiences or characteristics to promote personal development, sustain an inclusive workforce and improve business results. Groups exist for African Americans, Asians, Hispanics, emerging leaders, LGBTQ, people with visible and invisible disabilities, veterans, and women. These groups are open to all employees and serve as strategic business partners.
Our D&I mission elevates each employee’s responsibility to contribute to our culture. Employees have the power and voice. For example, the company encourages and supports Business Resource Groups (BRGs), which are employee-driven, voluntary and open to all employees. Employees who share a common interest in professional development, improving corporate culture and impacting business results can form BRGs.
We Walk The Talk.
Recently, George Oliver our CEO has committed to doubling the representation of women leaders globally and minority leaders in the US within five years, launching an initiative focused on underserved markets, increasing the company’s spend with women and minority owned businesses, and establishing an initiative to educate the next generation of diverse sustainable building industry leaders. The company also said that include sustainability and diversity goals in senior leaders’ performance assessments, which are linked to executive compensation.

We helped Taikang Tongji (Wuhan) Hospital convert existing facilities into emergency medical facilities. We also installed a remote diagnostic system for Shanghai's Tongji Hospital.

Our Commitment to Sustainability.
Johnson Controls is one of 53 organizations that have now signed The Climate Pledge, a commitment co-founded by Amazon and Global Optimism to reach net-zero carbon emissions by 2040, ten years ahead of the goal set out in the United Nations' Paris Climate Agreement. We have also set a goal to double customers' emission reductions through implementation of OpenBlue digitally enabled solutions. This commitment starts at the very top. Our CEO George Oliver is the new chair of the Energy and Environment Committee for the Business Roundtable, an association of CEOs representing America's leading companies, to direct change towards a healthier planet."
Our Asia Pacific Headquarters is the first building in China to receive all three top sustainability certifications: USGBC LEED Platinum, China Green Building Design Label Three Star Certification, and IFC-World Bank EDGE Certification. The building generates 44 percent savings in overall energy consumption compared to the local market standard, and saves 4.8 million litres of water annually via grey water recycling and storm water recapture facilities.
The opening of our Asia Pacific headquarters demonstrates the ways in which Johnson Controls continues to accelerate sustainable development in Asia. Johnson Controls currently provides solutions and technologies to 90 percent of the world's tallest buildings, and has contributed to the construction of many iconic landmarks in Asia such as the Shanghai Tower and Taipei 101.

Creating a culture that focuses not just on diversity metrics, but on the inclusion of all talent — that is what will allow us to win as one team. When we embrace true diversity of thought and inclusion of ideas, we fuel innovation and gain a more intimate relationship with customers. We understand them more holistically and translate their problems into new business opportunities for us. This is foundational to our growth success story.
One of my passions is working on creating inclusive environments in the male-dominated engineering industry for women. I am a strong advocate for greater inclusivity and diversity at the workplace, and believes in bringing different energy and perspective to the company. I find that women are suitable for science and engineering. The disciplines require logical thinking and patience — traits that are natural to women.
Working in a future-focused company like Johnson Controls with a level playing field fuels my passion for innovation. I believe in staying motivated and curious, encouraging my colleagues to keep pushing the boundaries together and feeling the satisfaction of contributing to society. It doesn’t even feel like work because this is my passion.
I can speak for Johnson Controls, where I am proud to have seen and worked with strong and capable women engineers. We have a strong culture of diversity and inclusion and we offer women equal opportunities to explore the challenges at work. We take pains to ensure that our hiring slate always includes female candidates. An example of this is in Japan, where we continue to hire more female engineers than the industry average.
Two things stood out for me working in Johnson Controls: my great team mates and the dynamic working culture. I’ve been given many opportunities to grow professionally and to learn on the job. Promotions are based on merit and performance, and not dictated by gender. Whenever I’m stumped with challenges or issues, I know that I’ll be able to get advice and support from my team mates, peers and bosses.
Johnson Controls has a healthy work culture - one that promotes diversity and values teamwork. I had the privilege to work with Richard Buckley during my early years. He was a great mentor who saw my potential and gave me many opportunities to grow my managerial skills. He’s the one who encouraged me to take on new challenges and to step outside of my comfort zone. One example was my taking on the inaugural role of president of the Women Resource Network, a networking platform for fellow female colleagues and leaders within the company.There are always opportunities to develop one’s skills at the company. I was selected to undergo a 6-month leadership training program where I’d learned about the financial and other aspects of running a business. I’ve become a better manager to lead my team, thanks to the training.
