To execute on this diversity vision, Chart Industries has established a global Diversity and Inclusion Committee. Their efforts are targeted at the following six specific impact areas:

  • Community involvement
  • Talent/Hiring/ Development
  • Internal and external communication
  • Education and training
  • Broad team involvement
  • Employee engagement

To attract the top talent, built relationships with high schools, colleges and universities, as well as HBCUs from across the country. Since Chart Industries began partnering with colleges and universities to build a more robust pipeline of diverse and qualified talent, they have supported student groups across the country, including groups from Georgia Institute of Technology, Texas A&M University and University of Minnesota. In addition to supporting these student groups, Chart Industries has hosted interns from over twelve of universities.
