Diversity Statement - CEO

Message from Jim Collins, CEO

Corteva Agriscience is influencing the future of farming through advanced technologies and state-of-the-art research and development breakthroughs. Growing a future like ours can never be accomplished by a single person or a singular mindset.

Through diversity of backgrounds and perspectives, we gain the benefit of different ways of looking at our company. Promoting inclusion leads to innovative breakthroughs for our customers and an engaging employee experience for our people. Our goals can only be achieved by bringing forward a truly diverse, inclusive, and equitable workforce and cultivating a culture of belonging, a culture where each employee feels heard, valued, and empowered to contribute fully every day.

Our commitment to inclusion, diversity, and equity begins at the top. Our entire leadership team encourages colleagues to expand their knowledge and gain new experiences. Inclusion comes from open interactions with people who think differently than us. It comes from teams that collaborate across disciplines, identities, and cultures from around the globe.

Inclusion, diversity, and equity are not just words on paper; they are part of our values. It is the way we do business and critical to our future success. Our strategy is rooted in our company purpose and deeply connected to our business priorities. Our aspiration is to boldly embrace the power of inclusion, diversity and equity to enrich the lives of our employees and strengthen the performance of our company, while advancing equity in agriculture. Our values will guide us as we take action to make our ID&E vision a reality.

With strong partnerships both inside and outside of our company walls, we can make certain that Corteva Agriscience continues to deliver on our purpose to enrich the lives of those who produce and those who consume, ensuring progress for generations to come.
