Owens Corning announced last week that DiversityInc had recognized the concern as one of its Top 50 companies regarding leaders in workplace fairness and inclusion practices and policy, earning a spot at No. 44.
DiversityInc, an organization devoted to workplace fairness, included OC in its Top 50 list for the first time after previously naming it a “Noteworthy Company” for the past three years.
“I’m proud of our work to be a more inclusive and diverse company,” said Brian Chambers, Owens Corning chair and CEO. “By creating an environment where everyone feels valued, respected, and appreciated, we unlock the full potential of our company by attracting, developing, and retaining the very best talent in the world,”
According to DiversityInc, data submitted by companies for the annual Top 50 competition provides a trusted measure of employer and investor data transparency, equitable human capital outcomes for U.S. employers and the effectiveness of DEI strategy, policies and practices.
“It’s energizing to be recognized for the progress the people of Owens Corning have worked hard to achieve,” said Leah Maguire, OC’s vice president of Inclusion and Diversity. “Milestones are important to celebrate, especially since we’ve come a long way to get here. Even more importantly, we understand the work yet to be done and will embrace it with that same energy.”
Participation in the Top 50 survey measures overall performance in six key areas of diversity and inclusion management:
- Leadership Accountability
- Talent Programs
- Workforce Practices
- Supplier Diversity
- Human Capital Diversity Metrics
In 2022, Owens Corning progressed and is on track for its 2030 goal to have people of color fill 22% of global mid-level leader, director, and vice president roles; and to have women fill 35% of roles at that same level.
