Diversity & Inclusion at Avnet

This is a great time to be at Avnet and more importantly to be a part of our exciting transformation. The opportunity to create a new company and transform the way the world experiences technological innovation is extraordinary. To achieve our purpose of guiding today’s ideas into tomorrow’s technology, however, we must unleash the full potential of each of our employees.

With a workforce 15,000 strong, we rely on employees bringing both their passion and individual diversity of thought, experience, perspectives, and ideas to work. Our ability to appreciate, value, and leverage these talents to gain richer solutions is key in achieving our goals and mission. When we celebrate each other for who we are and the value each of us adds, our business results are stronger and engagement levels are higher.

Our CHRO on Diversity & Inclusion

“Our various backgrounds, the languages we speak, our thoughts and ideas, reflect how we’re diverse as a company. It’s part of who we are. And we recognize that it’s in those varying traits, perspectives and contributions that we derive the greatest value.”

MaryAnn Miller, Avnet Chief Human Resources Officer


Our deliberate and intentional approach to diversity and inclusion aims to increase the talent density around the business. It also serves to build and sustain an inclusive, supportive, and engaged culture where all employees feel respected, appreciated, accepted and valued for their uniqueness.

That’s why we’re so committed to cultivating a daily work environment where employees thrive and bring their whole selves to our workplaces all across the globe. We want you to reach your full potential while also contributing to Avnet’s long-term success. While every idea may not take root, our goal is to provide an environment that encourages new ways of thinking, collaboration and ingenuity. Because by leveraging diversity internally, we better understand and meet the technology needs of our external customers.
