Black History MonthInspiring Ownership Conversation with Marc Jones

Ingersoll Rand commemorated Black History Month, recognized each February, with opportunities for learning and actionable change. Our employees participated in thoughtful conversations to highlight Black and African-American innovators and industry leaders and their contributions to our history and culture.


In support of our purpose and values, the Black Employee Network (BEN) Inclusion Group hosted an “Inspiring Ownership” conversation with Marc Jones, CEO and chairman of Aeris Communications, Inc. and member of the Ingersoll Rand Board of Directors. The BEN steering committee connected virtually with Marc to discuss his thoughts on career development, talent opportunities and impactful diversity and inclusion efforts.
