Our IDEAL Commitment

At Greenbrier, we know that diversity, equity and inclusion paves the way to long-term success. Diversity of thought, interests and cultural backgrounds creates the foundation for meaningful and lasting organizational change.

From the highest levels of the company, it is an area where we must continue to advance. This perspective informs our IDEAL commitment:

Inclusion

We strive for people to feel safe, respected, engaged, motivated and valued for who they are and for their contributions toward our success.

Diversity

We value the entire spectrum of human similarities and differences, including the variety of perspectives our people bring to work.

Equity

We expect the fair and respectful treatment of all people. This means identifying and eliminating unfair biases, stereotypes or barriers to enhance employment and advancement opportunities.

Access

We create processes with multiple entry points to ensure equal access to resources and opportunities.

Leadership

Our leaders are dedicated to fostering IDEAL. This includes talent development and thought leadership activities that advance our organizational commitment to this work.

IDEAL is not an initiative, campaign or project with an end date or a finish line.

IDEAL is an ongoing commitment to foster an inclusive and equitable workplace—one where people feel a sense of belonging.

Through IDEAL, Greenbrier will continue to drive practices that serve our business, our employees, our customers, our shareholders and the communities where we operate.

  • Honors our differences and provides an inviting and supportive workplace
