Diversity and inclusion at Penske is the driving force of our company’s success. As a global company with diverse customers, businesses and associates, Penske draws from our varied backgrounds to help improve and grow our businesses.
As a result, Penske is a stronger, more competitive company that better reflects the customers and communities we serve around the globe. We promote and support diversity and inclusion in our workforce and supplier base through a variety of efforts, including:
Penske has a well-established Diversity and Inclusion Council that meets regularly to discuss, provide feedback on and help guide our organization on diversity-related issues. Diversity and Inclusion Council members consist of our Penske associates from a variety of levels within the organization.
We seek and value candidates from a variety of backgrounds and experiences. Penske actively recruits candidates from colleges, universities, trade schools, and military and veterans groups. We maintain a regular recruiting presence with hundreds of schools.
Penske’s mentoring program helps enhance developmental opportunities for associates within the organization. The goal of the program is to enhance working relationships, foster professional development, and strengthen diversity and inclusion.
Penske has a growing associate interest in affinity groups. The Penske Women's Network was the first affinity group established at the company.
Penske has been steadily growing and cultivating relationships with minority-owned and women-owned businesses for well over a decade. The effort is a part of our ongoing initiatives to promote diversity and inclusion within our network of suppliers.
Each year on average, we spend more than 22 percent of our total annual spend with hundreds of minority-owned and women-owned businesses combined. Please review our guidelines and information about supplier diversity.
