In addition, to ensure that everyone feels a sense of inclusion, belonging and support, we’ve established a goal of 80 percent on our DE&I index for all demographic groups by 2025. The index is comprised of six questions within our annual survey that measures employees’ perceptions related to DE&I.

Platforms and Partnerships for Learning and Progress

A key focus of our strategy is to continue to raise the level of awareness and understanding of what DE&I means, why it matters and how we each play a role in driving the impact we want.

We’ve worked with several strategic partners to design and implement enterprise-wide learning experiences. In addition to serving as opportunities for our Masco and business unit senior executives to sponsor and reinforce our collective commitment to DE&I, these voluntary, inspiring and engaging two-way forums facilitate self-reflection, shared learning and mindset shifts.

Partnering to Drive Meaningful Results

The Human Library is an innovative and experiential learning platform that takes a different approach to traditional diversity and inclusion training, connecting thousands of volunteers from around the globe as open “Human Books” with “readers” from companies, local community events and other forums. In 2020, 575 employees across the Masco enterprise participated in virtual dialogues with the Human Library. Masco also invested as a founding partner for a new Human Library online app that will spark interactive conversations around the globe about equality and diversity.
