About Diversity & Inclusion network:
Nobody has all the answers and if you have a work environment in which everyone has the same background, that’s bound to have its limitations. That’s why at AkzoNobel, we want to create an environment in which everyone’s ideas go far – regardless of your sex, age, race, or sexual orientation.
To achieve this, we have had a dedicated Diversity and Inclusion (D&I) program in AkzoNobel since 2008. The goals of the program are to create awareness and engagement around diversity, to embed the concept in the organization, to establish company-wide metrics and to make AkzoNobel a true reflection of the markets in which we operate.
Our D&I activities also include a focus on LGBT issues and we have a growing LGBT network within the company, which organizes events and initiatives. For example, in 2013, AkzoNobel was also proud to be one of the sponsors of the Amsterdam Canal Pride Parade, the world’s only LGBT pride boat parade, and had its own boat in the Parade under the theme “Show Your True Colors.”
