Putting our DEI commitment into action for our associates

At Zurn Elkay Water Solutions, we’re committed to having the most highly motivated, diverse team and perspectives in our industry, and creating a culture where people feel like they belong and can perform at their best. 

That’s why our diversity, equity and inclusion (DEI) commitment is built into our company’s programs and processes, from talent acquisition to development to succession planning. We have zero tolerance for discrimination or harassment based on age, race, religious beliefs, ethnicity, gender identity or expression, sexual orientation, disability, experience, national origin, style and cultural background. 

Training and support

Our annual Code of Conduct training includes two modules designed to increase DEI awareness and support: Overcoming Unconscious Bias in the Workplace and Leading Diversity. These modules demonstrate best practices on how to be an inclusive leader, as well as how to manage and leverage diversity to benefit associates, customers and the organization. 

We also have multiple Employee Resource Groups that support inclusion and offer ways for our associates to build connections in our workforce and community. Plus, we prioritize belonging, and measure our progress with our Associate Inclusion Index

Tracking our diversity

Through 2021, here’s a look at Zurn’s diversity progress:

Gender diversity: 
73% male
27% female

Racial diversity: 
61% white
26% Hispanic or Latinx
8% Black or African American
2% Asian
2% Multiracial, Native American, Pacific Islander  

Diversity on our Board

We’re also working to build a more diverse Board of Directors that reflects the people we serve. As of December 2021, three of our nine directors were either women or non-white. 

We’ve set a goal for women to make up at least 30% of our Board in the future, and we are looking into other ways to promote diversity on the Board and in our workplace.
