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 supports IDEA – Inclusion, Diversity, Equity, and Access. As a global company, we have Associates from around the world who reflect our customers and partners. Our diversity keeps us strong and connected to the world. Whether it is educating kids in the community about the science of sound, showing our pride at community events, or celebrating with fellow Associates, we firmly believe that diversity is not only a core value, but also a vital catalyst for innovation, growth, and success.
We recognize that a diverse workforce -- inclusive of different backgrounds, perspectives, and experiences -- fuels our ability to create exceptional audio products and solutions that cater to the diverse needs of our customers worldwide.
By actively fostering a culture of inclusion, diversity, equity, and access, we ensure that our Associates feel valued, respected, and empowered to bring their authentic selves to work. We embrace the uniqueness of each individual and understand that it is through diverse voices and ideas that we can drive continuous improvement to remain a leader in the audio industry.
