Diversity, Equity and Inclusion

Our Commitment

Zurn Elkay stands against racism, discrimination and social injustice. We are committed to maintaining a culture that celebrates diversity and fosters inclusion while working to create a more just and equitable society. Diversity, Equity and Inclusion (DEI) is a fundamental part of our business and our core values. We strive to offer a work environment that encourages our associates to feel comfortable and that recognizes the unique perspectives they bring.


Employee Resource Groups (ERGs)

Employee resource groups are a critical part of our strategy to create a workplace where everyone feels comfortable and supported as their true selves. These associate-led organizations bring together people with shared backgrounds or characteristics to discuss their experiences, identify opportunities to improve our diversity and inclusion efforts and create networking and personal development opportunities.


Belonging at Zurn Elkay

We are guided by our core value of continuous improvement to always look for ways to improve equity and inclusion inside Zurn Elkay. We listen closely to our associates’ feedback and use their comments to drive new policies and practices that support a culture of belonging.


Recruiting and Training

In 2022, we enhanced our external partnerships to help bring a more diverse group of candidates into our recruiting process. We continued to offer diversity- and inclusion-focused modules in our annual Code of Conduct training for all associates.


Pay Equity

We pride ourselves on paying for performance and conduct an annual pay equity review to ensure that qualifications like years of experience, education and prior work history influence associate pay, not gender. This study, which identified no significant gender pay equity issues, was completed in July 2022 and will continue to be performed annually.


Supplier Diversity

Our commitment to working toward a more just and equitable society inspires us to consider the total impact of our business. Our U.S. Supplier Diversity Program aims to increase domestic spending with suppliers owned by women, racial and ethnic minorities, LGBTQ+ individuals, disabled individuals or veterans and located in HUBZones, areas the Small Business Administration has designated as historically underutilized.
