Herman Miller President and Chief Executive Officer, Andi Owen, recently signed the CEO Action for Diversity and Inclusion™ (CEO Action) pledge, joining more than 1,100 other leaders across 85 industries committed to advancing diversity and inclusion goals.
The company also released a series of commitments related to diversity, equity, and inclusion across three key areas: company, industry, and communities.
“We’ve always believed in the power of diversity and aspire to be an inclusive community at Herman Miller. With racial inequities and social justice coming into focus across societies and corporations around the world, we took a hard look at how we’re putting our beliefs about diversity, equity, and inclusion into practice,” said Owen. “The CEO Action pledge, along with our series of company commitments, will push us forward in our journey toward positive change.”
The CEO Action pledge centers around four commitments: cultivating trusting workplaces; implementing and/or expanding unconscious bias education; sharing best—and unsuccessful—practices; and creating and sharing strategic inclusion and diversity plans with the Board of Directors (or equivalent governing bodies). The coalition is the largest CEO-driven business commitment to advance diversity and inclusion within the workplace.
