DSM is a global purpose-led, science-based company specializing in Nutrition, Health & Sustainable Living. Our purpose is to create brighter lives for all. Inclusion is core to our culture, so we are proud to support the Valuable500 Campaign, as a visible commitment to improving the lives of our workforce, customers and the communities we serve.
Across the DSM regions and businesses we have many policies, procedures and practices in place to ensure that employees with disabilities have open and fair opportunities to work and develop within DSM. We also proactively offer programs to address disability challenges. However we recognize that we can, and should, do more, and that we are on a journey of learning about disability inclusion.
Our commitment to action includes:
- Incorporating a Disability Inclusion plan in a revised global DSM Inclusion & Diversity Strategy from 2020
- Creating a positive and safe environment for all DSM colleagues with disabilities to speak openly about themselves and their expectations, in order to reach their fullest potential.
- Listening to our own employees, existing DSM disability partnerships, and colleagues from the Valuable500 network, to learn and improve disability inclusion across all DSM businesses.
