Johns Manville values both diversity and inclusion in the workplace. We know that diversity is not only critical for the long-term success of the company but the industry as a whole. That is why we are committed to developing and retaining our workforce through fostering an inclusive work environment that prizes treating others with dignity and respect. Yet, Diversity & Inclusion (D&I) is more than a savvy move for the company, it is plainly the right thing to do for our employees and our communities.
Our D&I Council is composed of employees in North America and Europe. The Council meets regularly and works to promote and foster an environment of inclusion in many ways. They advocate for inclusivity through content, engagement, discussion, understanding, allyship and training. Throughout the year, JM recognizes more than two dozen D&I-focused recognition days, weeks and months. The Council encourages all employees to take part in celebrating the value of D&I.
Our D&I Council has an exciting plan of events and initiatives for 2022. We can’t wait to share them with you throughout the year. First, we are kicking off the year with the rollout of two JM Employee Resource Groups: embRACE (focused on general race and culture topics) and WIN@JM (focused on supporting women in the workplace). Other groups focusing on individuals with disabilities, the LGBTQIA+ community and military veterans will be introduced later this year.
These groups, with direction and support from the D&I Council, will promote content, events, educational materials and more to help JMers stay informed of each groups’ unique perspectives.
