3M, maker of Post-It, Scotch, Scotch-Brite, Scotchgard, Nexcare and other popular branded products, has joined the Network of Executive Women as a platinum sponsor.

"Diversity is more than a priority at 3M. It is the company’s business model,” said Nancy Krawczyk, NEW vice president of sales and marketing." 3M is achieving more than 60 percent of its sales outside the United States and relies on a diverse global workforce to understand the needs of those diverse customers and generate ideas that yield innovative solutions.”

3M has made steady progress increasing the number of women and other minorities in leadership positions. "Our success depends on diversity as well as cultural savvy and agility as we work with colleagues around the world,” said Pauline Allison, marketing director for 3M, which has 84,000 employees globally. "We provide training, tools, networking opportunities and a variety of mentoring programs to all employees who demonstrate leadership potential.” 3M also requires new employees take a diversity awareness course.

3M’s Diversity and Inclusion Department ensures that candidates from diverse backgrounds have a place at the company, Allison noted. Members of its employee resource and affinity groups, including its Women’s Leadership Network, lead internal initiatives and programs and frequently participate in campus recruiting activities.

3M operates in 65 countries and sells products in nearly 200 countries, and is known as the innovation company that never stops inventing. The company recorded global sales of $30 billion in 2011.
