Diversity, Equity & Inclusion

At MKS, our commitment to diversity, equity and inclusion is core to our culture. We believe that diversity of gender, race, ethnicity, sexual orientation, culture, education, background and experience fuels innovation and results as well as enables our employees to succeed.


Diversity, Equity and Inclusion is Core to Our Culture

  • Our Board of Directors is comprised of 38% female members and is 38% demographically diverse. In addition, our Lead Director is a woman. We have been recognized for our commitment to advancing women's representation among Boards of Directors of public companies in Massachusetts. In addition, our executive team is comprised of 20% female members and is 20% racially diverse.
  • In 2020, as part of our commitment to diversity, equity and inclusion, over 120 of our leaders around the world completed a six-week diversity, equity and inclusion program hosted by a consulting firm recognized as best-in-class in the area of diversity, equity and inclusion capability building. We received overwhelmingly positive feedback from participants and rolled out the training to an additional 120 leaders in the spring of 2021. In addition, in 2021 we rolled out a Global Diversity course to all employees worldwide and are now launching bias awareness training for our global Talent Acquisition team.
  • We proactively provide our hiring managers with diverse candidate slates in our employee recruiting process.
  • MKS regularly conducts robust analyses of pay practices across gender and other diversity factors within comparator groups to detect any existing disparities within base and total compensation, and we have taken prompt and effective action to correct any identified disparities. We are proud that our most recent analysis of U.S. employees' compensation has, with minimal required adjustments, resulted in full pay equity for our U.S. employees.
