A Culture of Diversity

Our culture welcomes different viewpoints and people from a variety of environments and backgrounds. Our unique lattice organization and core principles are catalysts to participation, communication, and creativity. Our associates are what differentiate Gore as an enterprise and fuel our growth. Knowledge, expertise, talents, creativity, and hard work are what lead to unique, valuable, and profitable products. It is for this reason that attracting, growing, energising, and retaining the best talent is critical to our success.

A Practice of Diversity

To continue to be a leading technology company and one of the “100 Best Companies to Work For in America,” we need great talent from all sources. To do this, we focus on recruiting and retaining the best through:

  • Associate networks
  • Recruiting strategy 
  • Diversity awareness training
  • Diversity and work/life benefits

Associate Networks

These self-organised groups drive networking, development, education, and outreach initiatives. The following “business networks” are those we’ve piloted so far:

  • African-Americans
  • Asians
  • Women
  • Young Engineers

Recruiting Strategy

To hire the best and brightest, and to support our commitment to diversity, we partner with key universities; target specific career fairs, organizations, and search firms; and advertise in diverse publications and internet sites.

Diversity Awareness

We offer resources so all associates have the opportunity to grow and lead challenging and rewarding careers at Gore, such as

  • Orientation to learn about our culture and values
  • Sponsors to help with growth and development
  • Diversity-related development programs

Diversity and Work/Life Benefits

Because our associates are our most valued asset, we try to provide tools and resources to allow flexibility in balancing work/life needs, including

  • Tuition reimbursement
  • Resource and referral program for childcare
  • Adoption assistance
  • Domestic partner benefits
  • Flexible work hours
