Jabil is a global manufacturing services company, employing 200,000 and posting a net revenue of $22-billion last fiscal year. With more than 100 sites across 26 countries, Jabil has a natural diversity with its processes and people. Jabil Joules was created in 2013 as an opportunity to give Jabil’s female employees an avenue for encouraging future generations how to be successful in the manufacturing industry, but it has since grown to support larger diversity efforts across the organization. The program currently includes small local
programs, community outreach, large regional events, and a blog where leaders share their insights on diversity and female employees can showcase their achievement within or outside of Jabil.
Everyone at Jabil is a Joule [joul or /jool/ = a unit of energy], and the Jabil Joules program helps to uncover and showcase the diversity among all employees, including diversity of experience, thoughts, culture, gender and more. Jabil Joules serves as a catalyst for positive change by opening dialogues around gender equality, demonstrating the importance of inclusivity, and providing resources for employees to develop their careers
