Employee Resource Groups

Our workforce is as diverse as the customers we serve. We have different backgrounds and varied experiences. But wherever we work, whatever we do, we share a single set of values that unite our company. We live and work by these values - integrity, excellence, teamwork and commitment - which means we treat each other with respect and value each individual's contribution.

At Caterpillar, we recognize the need to celebrate diversity and the true uniqueness of each individual member, while ensuring the inclusion of the individual's ideas and contributions.
