DuPont Supports Marriage Equality 
WILMINGTON, Del., March 25, 2013 – In anticipation of a marriage equality
bill, which is expected to be introduced in the Delaware legislature this
year, DuPont announced its support for marriage equality. A leader in
corporate policies and practices related to lesbian, gay, bisexual and
transgender employees as recognized by the Human Rights Campaign, DuPont
believes this action demonstrates its core value of respect for people and
its commitment to diversity and inclusion. 
“DuPont is passionate about equality, and I am proud of our company and
our employees’ unwavering commitment to our core value of respect for
people,” said Benito Cachinero-Sánchez, senior vice president, DuPont
Human Resources. “Support for marriage equality is an affirmation of
these fundamental beliefs and an opportunity for our actions to speak
louder than our words. 
“At DuPont, every employee is responsible for ensuring a respectful
workplace in which people are treated fairly and consistently, and we
embrace the value and differences of each individual,” Cachinero-Sánchez
added. “Our support of marriage equality shows our employees and the
community that our commitment to respect for people and equality extends
beyond our walls. Our inclusiveness is what allows us to develop and grow
as individuals and as a company, and it reinforces our position as a
leading employer. We firmly believe our commitment to diversity and
respect attracts talented individuals with like values, and that creates a
more innovative culture, enabling us to produce more and better solutions
for the challenges facing our world.”
