Evaluating Our Goals
Each year, we evaluate our ID&E goals to identify opportunities and obstacles that require us to take meaningful actions to remain on track. Our most recent evaluation indicated we could create an even stronger, more ethnically diverse US workforce. Our goal from 2022 forward is to fill 30% of all US positions with ethnically diverse employees, an increase from the original 20% goal.
Our evaluation also identified some challenges ahead to fully achieving our gender parity goal. Chemours has a bedrock commitment to gender parity in all areas of the company while realizing that in some roles achieving full gender parity by the aggressive date of 2030 may not be possible. In this context, we are reshaping our gender parity goal to fill 50% of all director level positions and above with women by 2030, and to fill 35% of all global roles with women by 2030—on an intentional path to full gender parity at all levels of the organization by 2050 or earlier.
