Employees throughout Saint-Gobain North America recently participated in the company’s second annual Diversity & Inclusion Day. Modeled after the United Nation’s Day of Cultural Diversity for Dialog and Development, the Saint-Gobain event celebrated the positive impact of diversity and inclusion in our workplaces by making one change.
At Decoustics, employees took part in making preparations for the event and D&I day’s activities. Site was decorated with flags from the 30 different countries representing the employees’ countries of origin, educational posters and festive decorations. Everyone had prepared a traditional meal for our potluck, numerous suggestions were received for the special D&I song playlist and also many wore their traditional garments and/or colors of their country’s team or flag. Together we took steps forward to better recognizing our diverse culture and making a change towards including everyone, as well as giving back.
For the event, two employees had each prepared an activity to share something about their culture and engage everyone to participate. In the photo above, employees are having a great time taking part in one of those activities and learning the steps to a Latin American dance.
