Veterans at Dow

Our Mission

Dow wants and values the skills that veterans bring to the workforce and we strongly support their commitment to the service.

Engagement Program

Mentors focus on helping mentees adjust to the Dow workplace culture and reach their full potential within the organization. The engagement program is a larger part of building a culture of inclusion and diversity. Sponsorships | Dow was an official supporter of the 2016 Invictus Games and the 2014 Warrior Games—a tremendous opportunity to honor the men and women who risked their lives to serve in the military.

Are you a veteran interested in a career with Dow?

We are proud to qualify 3.5 million veterans who have four or more years of relevant military experience for jobs that require an Associate’s or Bachelor’s degree, bringing veteran talent into the organization to further our success.

  • Dow announced in November 2020 the launch of a unique program that will level the playing field for veterans with relevant military experience of E6 ranking or greater (OR6 for Canada) as equivalent to a Bachelor’s degree for U.S and Canada job postings.
    • The E6 ranking (OR6 for Canada) translates to 8-12 years of experience and has generally equivalent responsibilities across all branches of the military.
