A Message from NXP President and CEO Kurt Sievers

As we look at the current state of race relations around the globe, we recognize an urgent need to address the systemic inequities – racial, economic and otherwise – that have plagued society for far too long. Systemic racism exists around the world – and it is unacceptable everywhere. Whether in our workplace or in our personal lives, each and every one of us has a responsibility to ensure we are speaking up, doing the right things and not just talking, but acting.

At NXP, we aim to create an inclusive work environment and we will not tolerate racism, discrimination or harassment of any kind. We have programs in place focused on diversity, inclusion and equality. We are engaging in the more difficult conversations, and most importantly listening more to unheard voices. We know that meaningful change requires from each of us a significant amount of energy, understanding and learning from our past mistakes. As a Management Team, we are continuously evaluating our efforts in this critical area and will implement additional steps to strengthen our approach as we see fit going forward.

Diversity, openness and acceptance make us who we are at NXP. I recognize how difficult it is to address racism and inequality, but I firmly believe it is critical to the growth, development and future success of our company, ultimately serving as a competitive advantage. We are committed to this fight against injustice and inequality for the long run, and we will hold ourselves accountable.

Best regards,

Kurt Sievers
NXP President and Chief Executive Officer
