A key component our company’s corporate social responsibility program is our community initiatives. Through philanthropy and volunteerism, we aim to create a relationship of mutual trust and respect between the company and the local communities in which we operate. Through our community involvement, we also want our employees to be proud of what they do and where they work.

Our world is changing, the climate is changing, the global population is increasing, and the need for reliable energy continues to grow. Traditional energy sources, such as fossil fuels, will not last forever. It is time to look for alternative energy sources and conserve the energy we use. ON Semiconductor is doing just that.
October is LGBTQ+ history month, a month in which we celebrate National Coming Out Day (NCOD). NCOD allows those in the LGBTQ+ community to publically announce and live their truth. ON Semiconductor and our diversity and inclusion initiative strives to foster an environment where all employees’ differences are embraced.

ON Semiconductor’s newest affinity group, the Black Employee Network or B.E.N., launched in July 2019. B.E.N. formed organically by a group of employees in Phoenix, Rochester and Sunnyvale. This group hopes to create an avenue to build relationships with people of similar backgrounds and likeness across the Black community and beyond at ON Semiconductor. We decided to use Black, rather than African American, because of the variation of lineage within the community and as a more inclusive perspective of the collective experiences in the US and across the globe.
