DIVERSITY, EQUITY AND INCLUSION
Our commitment to help shape a better world
DEI is a business imperative
As we evolve our internal culture at Momentive and make progress with our vision to raise the bar for human experiences, diversity, equity and inclusion remain at the forefront of our minds.
We’ve long known that diverse companies have access to a wealth of different perspectives that fuel better decisions. It’s clear by now that equitable employers empower more creative and innovative people than the systems of the status quo. Inclusive cultures are healthy, enduring and productive.
Today, building a workplace where everyone feels a sense of belonging and is treated fairly is table stakes. We believe that companies must take a stand – we must all take action using our resources and voices to help shape a better world.
At Momentive, we believe that reaching our DEI goals is just as important as meeting our financial goals. We believe that it’s a business imperative. In fact, we believe that we have a responsibility to each other to create a more diverse, inclusive and equitable world for all of us.
Global representation goals
Our representation goals reflect our belief that diverse representation positively impacts our business. Our work promoting it will never truly be done.
2021 global representation numbers
Our current representation numbers are a snapshot of who we are today, with plenty of room to grow.
Diversity, equity, and inclusion aren’t just words we use. They are a filter by which we operate our teams and our business, and—most importantly—how we deliver social impact.
