DANBURY, Conn.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–lt;a href="https://twitter.com/search?q=%24PX&src=ctag" target="_blank"gt;$PXlt;/agt; lt;a href="https://twitter.com/hashtag/PraxairInc?src=hash" target="_blank"gt;#PraxairInclt;/agt;–Praxair,
Inc.
, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Linde plc (NYSE:LIN; FWB:LIN),
has been named to Bloomberg's
2019 Gender-Equality Index (GEI)
and Forbes’
America’s Best Employers for Diversity 2019
list, recognizing the
company’s strong commitment to diversity and inclusion.

This is the second consecutive year Praxair has been included on the
Bloomberg GEI, which distinguishes companies committed to transparency
in gender reporting and advancing women’s equality.

Additionally, Forbes recognized Praxair as one of America’s Best
Employers for Diversity. The list of 500 employers was based on an
independent survey in which employees were asked to evaluate their own
employers and others in the industry surrounding the topics of age,
gender equality, ethnicity, disability, LGBTQ+ and general diversity.
Other factors for consideration included diversity among top executive
and board positions.

“These recognitions by Bloomberg, Forbes and other leading organizations
are a testament to the value we place on operationalizing diversity and
inclusion,” noted David Strauss, vice president and chief human
resources officer. “Praxair is committed to creating a work environment
that respects, supports and values the unique contributions and ideas
that all our employees bring to the workplace every day.”

Praxair was recently included on Forbes' World’s Best Employers and
Mogul’s Top 1,000 Companies with the Strongest Female Leaders in 2018
lists. More information about Praxair’s external recognition can be
