MIDLAND, Mich., Aug. 11, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- Dow (NYSE: DOW) has
been named to Seramount's 2021 Inclusion
Index (formerly known as the Diversity Best Practices
Inclusion Index). This is the first year Dow was recognized on the
list which includes a total of 45 organizations recognized for
creating an inclusive workplace.
The Inclusion Index helps organizations understand trends and
gaps in demographic representation, creates a road map to drive
internal change, and identifies diversity, equity, and inclusion
(DE&I) solutions to close the gaps.
"Being named to Seramount's 2021 Inclusion Index is a testament
to our Company's dedication to creating an inclusive workplace –
one that appreciates the unique contributions of all its people,"
said Karen S. Carter, chief human
resources officer and chief inclusion officer. "It also reminds us
the value of being transparent about our progress, where we still
have more work to do and holding ourselves accountable."
Organizations, including Dow, voluntarily provided data and were
measured in three key areas:
- best practices in the recruitment, retention, and advancement
of people from historically underrepresented groups—women,
racial/ethnic minorities, people with disabilities, and LGBTQ+
- inclusive corporate culture, including leadership
- demographics of diversity for women and racial/ethnic
- how organizations are addressing racism – a new addition to the
survey this year.
A total of 193 organizations applied to participate in
Seramount's 2021 Inclusion Index. Results reveal opportunities for
