Fostering a Culture of Allyship at Ingersoll Rand

With over 15,000 employees across six continents, Ingersoll Rand prides itself on creating a diverse workforce that is welcoming and inclusive. It’s the foundation of the company’s culture and a core value in which the company operates.


The endless mission to foster inspired teams by making all employees feel safe, engaged and valued is supported by various inclusion groups and developmental programs throughout the company. Most importantly, it is supported by Ingersoll Rand’s own employees who embrace this responsibility by practicing empathy, breaking down barriers and influencing change, through a strong commitment and a bias to action.


What is Allyship?

Allyship is the action of promoting equity through supportive relationships and advocating for those facing organizational inequalities. Practicing allyship is not passive; it is an ongoing commitment.

An ally is any person who continuously learns, actively promotes and works to advance the culture of inclusion through intentional, positive and conscious efforts that benefit one another.


Being an ally and advocating for colleagues of different identities from your own can create a valuable impact on the well-being, growth and development of different groups. A diverse workforce is directly linked to stronger performances in innovation, productivity, profitability and customer satisfaction.

To promote allyship and support its active allies, Ingersoll Rand is deploying a series of resources, guidelines and tools, including opportunities for discussion and reflection. Ingersoll Rand supports allyship and the power of building meaningful relationships globally as a strategic advantage for our business and a key practice to enhance our employees’ sense of belonging.
