Our strategy to create a sustainable world includes uplifting our people and communities. We're investing in our people and an inclusive culture where everyone can advance and grow. Our commitment and investment extends into our communities where we are focused on the next generation of the workforce with the potential to transform our world.
How we'll do it
A better world starts with action. Our actions are aimed at achieving workforce diversity that reflects our diverse communities, advancing gender parity in leadership roles, and creating pathways to green and STEM careers.
Opportunity for all is about improving lives through action. It's about creating new possibilities and a better world for our people and communities through education, equality, economic mobility, health, and well-being. To change the world, we started from within. We know that inclusion and diversity increase effectiveness, productivity, and brings new perspectives to our company.
Our goal is to cultivate a workforce that reflects the communities where we live and work. That's why we're committed to increasing gender parity in leadership roles and signed the paradigm for parity pledge. Diversity and inclusion also extend to racial equality in our workforce. Our initiative to advance Black leaders launched in 2019 focuses on development, retention, and opportunities for growth.
We know that it is our responsibility to lead the change we want to see in our business, industry, and the world. To combat inequalities and injustice still prevalent in society, we are committed to cultivating and advancing community partnerships that support racial equality in Black communities and other communities of color. These investments enable our people to grow and advance while building the future of our company. Around the globe, our citizenship efforts impact multiple facets of our communities, including STEM and climate education, economic mobility, access to affordable housing, cooling, and comfort solutions, as well as healthy food and wellness. Through "We Move Food," we rally behind Feeding America and our ThermoKing dealers to transport perishable foods to 26 of the most food insecure markets in the U.S. and in Latin America. We're building healthier communities through quality of life programs for the elderly in China and by partnering with Solar Buddy, our people helped distribute solar lights so thousands of students in Tanzania, the Dominican Republic, India, and South Africa can study after the sun goes down. In 2019, we invested more than 5.4 million dollars in local communities to create high-touch and high-impact experiences for underserved populations and extend access to STEM education through partners such as Project Scientist and the National Society of Black Engineers. Collectively, these actions will transform our world into a more socially, economically, and environmentally sustainable place. Striving for "opportunity for all" is at the heart of who we want to be. We have a long way to go and we're up to the challenge.
