“Kenworth is committed to fostering an environment of diversity, equality and inclusivity in the workplace. This empowers our employees to engage in productive dialogue about Kenworth’s corporate culture, as well as influencing our innovative products and global business,” said Genevieve Bekkerus, Kenworth marketing director.

Kenworth maintains a Kenworth Diversity Council. The council’s mission statement is to champion diversity and inclusion at Kenworth to support business goals, promote awareness of diversity, and create and maintain a respectful and inclusive workplace.

Kenworth also fosters support for women through The Society of Women Engineers (SWE), a national engineering organization geared toward the development, advancement and support of women engineers. Kenworth SWE group brings the national SWE organization to Kenworth by networking at outside work events, community involvements through volunteering, and advancements through training and mentorship.
