Ten years ago, Japan, Europe and North America were responsible for over 80% of global commerce. Today, the emerging markets of Asia, Latin America, and Central and Eastern Europe play an ever-growing role in global buying, selling and manufacturing. To be successful in the new, dynamic and competitive global market – we must accept and embrace diversity.
Dow AgroSciences has a simple definition for diversity – diversity is difference. We avoid quantifiable traits such as race, gender, age or ethnicity to define diversity; those words don't capture our broader sense of the term. Instead, we address our differences in background, viewpoint, personal style and how these can be woven together to form a stronger team.
The concept of difference is universal – it can be understood and interpreted in the context of individual cultures. And it allows each geographic region to develop a strategy that is relevant to that part of the world.
We embrace diversity for it's competitive advantage. It allows us to leverage the creativity and talents of our employees worldwide, providing us with cutting-edge solutions. It's this inclusive environment that attracts and retains the best and brightest employees.
The diversity strategy at Dow AgroSciences enables us to maximize the unique talents and experiences of each employee to create the best possible competitive advantage.
