We believe in...
We strive to build, engage and develop a strong, diverse workforce. As an equal opportunity employer, we are taking meaningful actions for more representation across every part of our organization. Our areas of focus include gender, age, race & ethnicity, LGBTQ+, individuals with disabilities, cross-cultural diversity and many more. There are many ways you’ll experience diversity, equity and inclusion at Covestro.
We are working to establish an equitable, supportive environment and culture. From inclusive workspace concepts to flexible working hours, we offer a range of opportunities that enable our people to balance their professional interests with their diverse lifestyles, going well beyond legal requirements in many countries. Here, you’ll be given the individual support you need to advance and thrive.
Our commitment to diversity, equity and inclusion extends beyond our own walls and into our communities. We believe we have a responsibility to operate an inclusive business and do so through participating in a large range of initiatives, such as providing housing for refugees. Globally, we are involved in many diverse community engagement and partnership efforts. Furthermore, we prioritize supplier diversity.
Our worldwide Employee Resource Groups (ERGs) are key partners in helping Covestro grow Diversity, Equity & Inclusion efforts. We strive to create a workplace where all employees are seen, welcomed, valued, supported and feel that they belong. Our many worldwide Employee Resource Groups and clubs promote interdisciplinary teamwork and build inclusion. Our ERGs are employee driven and open to everyone. ERGs have been created around a variety of diversity variables including gender, race and ethnicity, LGBTQ+, veterans, working parents, young professionals and many more. Additionally, we partner with external organizations to support diverse communities and promote equity.
The thing I enjoy most about working at Covestro is the constructive, collaborative work environment! We’re about forward progress...together!
