The purpose of this chapter is to review the global diversity management program at CEVA Logistics. CEVA is one of the world's leading supply chain companies with operating regions of Asia Pacific, Americas, Northern Europe and Southern Europe, Middle East, and Africa with its head office in The Netherlands. CEVA was formed in August, 2007, as a result of the merger of TNT Logistics and EGL Eagle Global Logistics. CEVA employs more than 49,000 people and runs a global network with operational facilities in more than 170 countries all over the world. The main Diversity and Inclusion activities of CEVA aim at increasing the participation of women at higher echelons of the management cadre, retaining diverse talent, and increasing the number of employees with disabilities. The diversity and integration understanding is the commitment to continuous improvement in every sub-region retaining the talented human capital with a focus on work and life balance initiatives and development by mentoring programs, network groups on the intranet, e-teams, and communities on gender and disability. Although diversity is integrated at CEVA at both the regional and global levels, the main motto in implementing the Diversity and Inclusion activities is "Think global, act local.".
