Diversity & Inclusion

Shure is committed to creating a work environment that allows every Associate to be their authentic self.
We believe it’s the people, not just our products, that make us successful. Every story of every Associate has left a unique imprint on each product that bears the Shure name.
We honor the diversity of our teams through Associate Resource Groups, International Food Days, mentorship programs, and global awareness celebrations that are designed to promote pride and togetherness at every level.
We've developed our IDEA (Inclusion, Diversity, Equity, and Access) initiative that includes Associates from all over the world. They are helping to continue to define and implement important Company actions in this space that reflect Shure's Core Values.

Shure began in 1925. The world was much different then, but one thing has remained constant through the vision of our founder, S.N. Shure – the appreciation for diversity and inclusion.

What was once a small, downtown Chicago company has expanded to a global presence with Associates of all different backgrounds and cultures. Our Customers also reflect this diversity as our presence touches every part of the world.

We embrace diversity and inclusion efforts. In fact, we started three employee “Associate Resource Groups” we call VIBEs – Values, Inclusion, Belonging, Equity. These VIBEs represent different Associate communities and their allies:

  • CARE – Cultural And Racial Equity
  • Pride – LGBTQIA+
  • WE – Women Everywhere

We have expanded these VIBEs regionally where Shure has office locations:

  • WE – China, India, Hong Kong, Japan, Mexico, Brazil, Germany, Denmark, Netherlands, Belgium,
  • UAE, Scotland, England, Spain, France, Austria
  • CARE – Germany, Denmark, Netherlands, Belgium, UAE, Scotland, England, Spain, France, Austria

The VIBEs help all of our global Associates in a number of ways. These include holding panel discussions about relevant topics in our world today, informational campaigns about cultural holidays and observances, involvement in local community activities, and input on relevant marketing and communications.

But the most important thing that the VIBEs accomplish is providing a space for any Associate to feel heard and supported.

We thank all of our VIBE leaders, supporters, members and volunteers for making Shure a more inclusive place to work.

Shure proudly recognizes and celebrates Pride Month with our global LGBTQIA+ Associates, allies, and partners who contribute to our culture of diversity and innovation every day.
 

Our Company provides a safe space for all Associates to thrive with dignity and purpose and offers a place where all voices are amplified and heard. That means fostering a culture of respect for all  individuals, so we can feel comfortable bringing our authentic selves to work.
 

We’re honored that we received a top score of 100 on the Human Rights Campaign Foundation’s 2023-2024 Corporate Equality Index (CEI), the nation’s foremost benchmarking survey and report measuring corporate policies and practices related to LGBTQ+ workplace equality.
 

The results of the 2023-2024 CEI showcase how U.S.-based companies are promoting LGBTQ+ friendly workplace policies in the U.S. and abroad. Our efforts in satisfying all the CEI’s criteria earned a score of 100 and the designation as recipient of the Equality 100 Award: Leader in LGBTQ+ Workplace Inclusion.


Companies rated in the CEI include Fortune magazine’s 500 largest publicly traded businesses and hundreds of publicly and privately held mid- to large-sized businesses.
 

The CEI rates companies on detailed criteria falling under four central pillars:

•           Non-discrimination policies across business entities

•           Equitable benefits for LGBTQ+ workers and their families

•           Supporting an inclusive culture

•           Corporate social responsibility

 

In addition to our LGBTQ+ inclusive policies, we have an Associate resource group called Pride VIBE (Values, Inclusion, Belonging, Equity). This group nurtures an inclusive environment where community members have a safe and welcoming culture for all Associates and provide feedback to ensure we convey the same to our business partners, and customers around the world.
