We are committed to empowering our employees, so they can get active in their communities.
Whether through the dedication of time, talent or expertise, we believe that volunteering promotes a positive employee experience, further supports Dow’s global citizenship priorities and investments, and, ultimately, advances our Company’s ambition.
Through #PullingOurWeight, a global waste cleanup and education campaign, Team Dow raises awareness with employees, communities, customers and key stakeholders about responsible waste management and addressing plastic pollution.
As part of Dow ACTs, Team Dow is encouraged to make MLK Day a day “on” to reflect on events that have shaped our history and give back to others through a day of service. Like Dr. King, Dow recognizes that service breaks down barriers by bringing people from different backgrounds together.
In October 2021, we launched our first-ever global Volunteer and ERG Participation Policy, which allows our employees paid time off to volunteer with community organizations and engage in Employee Resource Group (ERG) activities. The policy is designed to support and encourage all employees to participate in ERGs and give back to the communities where they live and work.
