Herman Miller and its Family of Brands Host Day of Understanding in Partnership with CEO Action for Racial Equity
This week, Herman Miller and its family of brands hosted their first Global Day(s) of Understanding. The participation is part of Herman Miller’s partnership with CEO Action and over 400 other organizations that will also commemorate this event in April.
During the time, the company’s leadership team, in partnership with its Equity Team leads, will hold a series of virtual candid conversations focused on diversity, equity, and inclusion and increasing understanding across differences.
“We are looking forward to participating in our first Day of Understanding, by hosting a three-day event that will strengthen our commitment to diversity, equity, and inclusion globally,” says Cheryl Kern, vice president of Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion at Herman Miller. “As a result of joining CEO Action and collaborating with other signatories, we are involving our leadership team and employees in real talk conversations around today’s most relevant topics. The last year has been eventful; yet throughout social uprisings and racial inequity challenges, our teams have learned so much from and about each other. We believe there is more to be aware of as we deepen our empathy, respect, and understanding for our colleagues. Day of Understanding serves as a powerful platform and conduit for these conversations.”
Days of Understanding serves as a powerful platform and conduit for conversations while driving the company’s DEI actions and strengthening business and DEI strategies.
