We’re devoted to building an inclusive and diverse workforce.
We will accomplish our aggressive business goals through the diligence of a vibrant and empowered workforce that leverages our differences to solve the world’s challenges through the power of chemistry. Our future and the future of chemistry and science overall depend upon a multiplicity of viewpoints, ideas, and experiences—something that can only be created by a diverse workforce representative of the world in which we live and work.
Great workforces, like great product portfolios, don’t just happen. They grow through careful, constant investment, engagement and ongoing care—all of which are essential when trying to cultivate a high-performance workforce that includes more women and people from diverse backgrounds. Our continued growth and ability to compete depends upon our investment in all our people and in our attracting and developing the best and brightest people in their fields. And we’re developing a long-term strategy to support employees at every stage of their careers with us—from recruitment and onboarding to career development and training to performance management, and finally to succession planning.
Together, we are building a culture where all people are included, and differences are a source of strength and cause for celebration.
Inclusion and Diversity
Chemours needs the multifaceted perspectives that can only come from a diverse, gender-balanced workforce.
Inclusive does not mean homogenized. We want our people to bring their identities to work with them, and we believe that employee resource groups (ERGs), introduced in 2016, foster employee connectivity, professional development, and continuous business process improvement. Our seven ERGs set annual goals to improve diversity of our talent acquisition, develop personally, and enhance our local communities. For example, our Early Career Network created a mentoring system that can be extended to benefit the entire organization. Our Black Employees Network spearheaded the launch of our paid day of service program and organized a headquarters celebration and multiple volunteer events in Wilmington, Delaware, our hometown, on Martin Luther King Day. Their positive energy inspired similar volunteer events around the world.
