Community

Investing in our people and places where we live and work

We are commited to playing an active role in helping shape the communities where we live and work. Through charitable investments, employee volunteerism, and global and local partnerships, we seek to create meaningful impact in areas that connect science, people and community.  Our actions are aimed at strengthening Dow communities, where all people have the ability to thrive and be their best. We know this is good for business and society.

Our approach

Our Global Citizenship strategy is guided by our five priority areas – advancing sustainable solutions, building inclusive communities, developing tomorrow’s innovators, engaging employees for impact, and collaborating with communities.
