Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion

People are at the center of everything we do at New Balance. Our culture is special because it’s unequivocally ours. Inclusive and caring. A place where our everyday actions create an environment where diversity is valued and each associate is seen, heard, and respected.  

Guided by our values and purpose, we aspire to be a global destination for talent and lead our industry with an unwavering commitment to diversity, equity, and inclusion. It’s not only critical to our company’s success, but it’s the right thing to do. We are working toward our aspiration by fostering a diverse talent pipeline, promoting a continuous learning environment that provides associates opportunities to build new skills and behaviors, and ensuring equitable opportunities to advance within the organization.  

Individually and collectively, we are committed to learning and growing together so we can forge a better tomorrow for our associates, our customers, and our communities. We’re all in. 

Associate Resource Groups (ARGs)

Our Associate Resource Groups (ARGs) in North America are a critical component to building community, connection and culture that fosters an inclusive and equitable workplace that enables associates to thrive, have a sense of belonging, and be their true and authentic selves.  

What our employees are saying:

"It's been great to see how far we've come in terms of diversity. Being biracial, it's always a weird thing knowing where I fit in. When I started, I was probably one of two or three people on the floor of color, so it's been really cool to see the progress we've made and the direction we're heading in."

“New Balance’s best kept secret are its people. The people of NB are truly special. Prior to starting, I shared my enthusiasm for DE&I with my hiring managers. I was involved in DE&I initiatives from Day 1 and was given the opportunity to join the working group. This meant a lot to me because my managers took my skills and interests into account and have been so supportive of incorporating DE&I work into my day-to-day work.”
