A joule is a unit of exerted energy, which is why we consider all of our employees Jabil Joules – full of energy and the driving force that can make a difference at Jabil, and for our families, our communities and ourselves.

Launched in 2013, our Jabil Joules program serves as a platform to create an open dialogue around diversity and inclusion through global educational forums, mentorships and community involvement activities. The program’s events serve all employees, male and female and for those just starting their career to senior leaders.

As a company with operations across many regions and countries, our employees collaborate with each other and our customers around the world. All employees are encouraged to speak up and be heard, while being true to themselves. We value and embrace the differences that make us who we are as individuals and global citizens.

The Joules program is worldwide, with sites spearheading local activities in the Americas, Asia and across Europe with the goal of increasing diversity and inclusion in the workplace. Our Joules around the world are positively influencing the next generation of the manufacturing and STEM workforce. Their inspiring stories and experiences have a lasting impact at Jabil and in the community.

The Jabil Joules blog below showcases our employees and their unique journeys, features Jabil leadership’s thoughts around the business benefits of diversity and inclusion, and shares Joules events from sites around the world.
