Our Culture 26 Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Across the General Dynamics Corporation, we believe that our competitive advantage lies within our workforce. The unique contributions of each employee are key in our ability to drive innovation and productivity.

We track, measure and analyze our workforce trends to establish accountability for continuing to cultivate diverse, equitable and inclusive environments across our businesses and at every level of our company. Our Ethos of trust, alignment, transparency and honesty is our moral code, rooted in respect, that guides how we engage with each other. We believe that diversity and inclusion are priorities that further these goals while simultaneously making us a better corporation and enhancing the value we bring to our stakeholders. These efforts demonstrate our Ethos at work. We continue to work to improve representation of diverse talent at all levels of the corporation so that we reflect the communities in which we operate. Our ongoing efforts include developing ways to attract and retain diverse talent. We gather data about overall demographics, promotions, recruitment and other processes across the employee lifecycle and use that to inform our areas of focus for continued improvement in these areas.

We are dedicated to equal employment opportunity that fosters and supports diversity in a principled, productive and inclusive work environment.
