Cultivating an inclusive culture
Veralto supports a culture that respects and appreciates individuality. Our Associate Resource Groups (ARGs) are one of our most powerful tools for promoting Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DE+I). Our ARGs provide a safe and supportive space for associates from marginalized communities. In addition to mentoring and coaching programs, ARGs are vibrant hubs of connection, professional development, and community within the broader Veralto family.
Our Associate Resource Groups are vibrant hubs of connection, professional development, and community within the broader Veralto family.
Each of our ARGs is also open to members of the “+ Friends” community, recognizing the importance of broader community support. We define a “Friend” as an ally who actively supports and defends the rights, interests, and well-being of another person or group.
Supporting our ARGs and their members is a top priority for our President and CEO, Jennifer L. Honeycutt, and her executive team. Our executive leaders serve as ARG sponsors, prioritize opportunities to speak with our ARGs, and actively participate in their events.

Senior Vice President, Product Quality and Innovation segment
The Veralto Executive Team and Operating Company Presidents work diligently with their leadership teams through targeted action plans to drive progress across Veralto in the form of awareness, skill-building, communication, and community outreach. Our DE+I Policy articulates our commitment at the enterprise, operating company, people leader, and individual contributor levels.
Veralto’s Office of DE+I is led by our Vice President of Talent and Diversity, who reports to Veralto’s Senior Vice President of Human Resources and partners with the Veralto Executive Team and Operating Company Presidents to:
Operating company accountability
Across Veralto, when we reach for bold objectives we care deeply about, we turn to a Veralto Enterprise System (VES) tool called Policy Deployment (PD). Since 2021, each Veralto operating company has committed to an annual PD initiative focused on DE+I, including broadening candidate pools, sourcing diverse hiring slates, retaining and expanding opportunities for diverse talent, and developing the competency and accountability of our people leaders.
Veralto requires each people leader to have a DE+I-related personal performance or development objective as part of our annual review process. Ensuring our leaders understand the importance of DE+I, model an inclusive culture through their own behaviors, and cultivate opportunities for their teams to learn and engage is critical for advancing our goals.
Our DE+I policy articulates our commitment to pay equity (including gender and racial/ethnic group pay equity) and ensuring that pay decisions are based on merit. We proactively monitor, measure, and review our pay practices and take actions toward achieving and maintaining pay equity.
In 2020, Veralto’s operating companies achieved base pay equity for women and for racial and ethnic minorities in the US, based on an analysis of weighted median base pay, and we are continuing to ensure pay equity around the world.
Our commitment to human rights
Veralto is committed to upholding the dignity of every person and supporting efforts to protect human rights around the world. This commitment is consistent with our purpose and values. We codify this commitment in our Code of Conduct and track our progress in our Sustainability Report.
While governments play a lead role in ensuring human rights for their citizens, we believe corporations also have an important duty to operationalize human rights in daily interactions with associates, customers, and business partners. We strive to be a responsible corporate citizen and to contribute positively to human rights impacts in the way we run our company.
It is our workplace policy to comply with all applicable laws pertaining to fair employment practices, freedom of association, privacy, collective bargaining, immigration, working time, wages, and hours as well as laws prohibiting forced labor, compulsory labor, child labor, employment discrimination, and human trafficking. We do not tolerate the abuse of human rights in our operations.
Corporate neutrality and individual action
No Veralto operating company contributes any money to or for any political party or candidate, any ballot measure, or any public communication that expressly advocates the election or defeat of a political candidate. We understand that the lines of human rights and politics can sometimes blur. We support our associates who may be impacted by political actions and respect those who choose to speak out in opposition to these actions. We believe in the right of associates to participate in the political process and encourage our associates to be active in charitable and political activities important to them.
