Integrating the world means more than connecting global supply chains. Our purpose demands that we go all the way to connect diverse talents and perspectives in fair and inclusive workplaces where amazing individuals feel they belong.

Talent belongs at Maersk

Our DEI ambition is to facilitate diversity of thought and create diverse, equitable and inclusive workplaces where Maersk employees feel able to be their whole selves and contribute their fullest.
