Inclusion and Diversity at Eastman

At Eastman, we’re creating the results of insight through innovations that touch lives around the globe. We’re fiercely committed to creating more and better insights to unleash results that make a real difference to all of our stakeholders. Through our commitment to inclusion and diversity, we will deliver on our commitment to innovate. This commitment is embedded in our core values. It’s who we are and what we do.


We believe transparency is an important part of creating accountability and driving progress.

In 2022 we are focused on building a more robust racially and ethnically diverse talent pool by increasing investments in diversity sourcing, requiring diverse candidate slates, and strengthening partnerships with universities, racially/ethnically diverse campus organizations and FOSSI. Through a root-cause analysis, we are working to understand better the drivers of internal talent movement and turnover. We want to ensure the strong talent we bring in are retained and growing throughout their careers.

We have made gains in our gender representation across the organization over the past year. One area of focus has been increasing the number women who make the transition from individual contributor to manager, and in this area, we’ve had the most progress. We also are seeing strong progression at the most senior levels of the organization. We will continue to emphasize diverse candidate slates for internal and external roles and invest in women’s professional development and career growth.
