Why is Diversity and Inclusion So Important for Ball?

Essential to Our Long-Term Success 
Ball’s Drive for 10 mindset calls for us to continually strive for perfection. A key factor in our focus on our people and culture, diversity and inclusion is an area in which we must excel to be successful over the long term.

A wider variety of people deliver the widest variety of ideas
To benefit from a greater diversity of thought, our definition of diversity is broad and includes a wide range of backgrounds, beliefs and perspectives.

An Embracing Culture 
During our long history, we’ve learned that integrity, energy, experience and ideas come in many packages – and we welcome them all.

A stronger global company
As we continue to expand around the world and get closer to global customers and stakeholders, employees with a variety of backgrounds, beliefs and perspectives give us a competitive advantage.

As One Ball, we all benefit from inclusion and diversity.
Because we are One Ball, our differences and similarities are directed toward the same Drive for 10 vision and our success is a shared one.
“Our goal is to make Ball a place where ALL employees feel welcome, valued and encouraged to contribute their unique skills, ideas and voice to the company’s success, as part of ONE Ball."

"As a growing, global enterprise, Ball must increase its efforts to create a more diverse and inclusive culture since—given global demographic shifts and the war for top talent—finding the right people with the right skills is a business imperative. We are pleased with the progress that we’re making and, while we realize that we have more work to do, we’re committed to making real, meaningful changes.”
- Charles Johnson, Vice President, Diversity & Inclusion
