Who we are and how it feels to work at Masco. At Masco, our strength is derived from the multitude of talents, ideas and experiences of our people. We further our speak up and listen culture to enable multiple perspectives, increase understanding and acceptance, and ensure employees feel respected, heard, supported, and valued. We champion a more inclusive team by identifying workplace barriers to create equitable access and opportunities for all.
How we help increase access, equity and inclusion with our diverse community partners. Inspired by our founder’s drive to make life better for his family and others, Masco actively engages with organizations and invests in programs to uplift the communities we serve. Through our Masco Million Differences campaign, we have pledged $1 million of our annual philanthropic contributions to nonprofit organizations dedicated to breaking down barriers to increase understanding and equitable access to opportunity within our communities.
How we deliver innovative solutions that meet the needs of all our consumers and customers. Our products are in the homes of people in more than 140 countries across the globe, representing many different backgrounds and ways of life. We work each day to ensure our products not only meet our consumers’ needs but demonstrate an understanding of who they are, what they care about and what they truly want. We invest in business partnerships that reflect both the diversity of our employees and of the communities in which we live and work.
U.S. Aspirational Representation Goals
In 2020, we established enterprise-wide aspirational representation goals to keep us accountable. 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. In 2020, our DE&I index score was 78 percent across our North American workforce.
Through our Masco Million Differences campaign, we are committed to allocating $1,000,000 of our annual philanthropic funding to support nonprofit organizations across the country that are working to break down barriers to diversity and inclusion in America’s corporate workforce through education and career resources.
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.
