What makes diversity meaningful at Owens Corning?
At Owens Corning, we understand that the ability to access great talent, having outstanding role models, and being comfortable with who we are is an important part of making diversity meaningful in our workplace. Our success is driven by our ability to attract and retain the most talented and high-performing employees available globally. To achieve that objective, Owens Corning is committed to being a company where opportunity for professional growth and success is determined by each employee's performance, regardless of personal attributes or other individual differences. For that to be a reality, each employee must be free to bring their complete self to work knowing that they will have an equal opportunity to reach their full potential with our company. Quite simply, we provide an environment where the most outstanding talent in the world feels welcomed, respected and valued for their contributions. Such an environment will facilitate otherwise unattainable business results and competitive advantage by leveraging the power of diverse experiences and perspectives.
"Owens Corning has kept diversity and inclusion in the forefront of my mind and has held discussions to encourage this type of thinking. During my expat assignment to Brussels Belgium, I felt very much supported and included. The Brussels office was a blending of people from many cultures, countries, and backgrounds, but we were all able to share the same values reinforced by Owens Corning’s commitment to driving this inclusive environment."
- Kaitlyn Lubrano, Internal Auditor & FALP Analyst
