Our initiatives: together we create positive change
Unlocking the full power of Diversity and Inclusion means giving our people agency to own their stories within the organization. It means creating initiatives at all levels , and driving employee-led initiatives. Here are a few of them we’re excited about.
Established by the UN Global Compact and UN Women, WEPs are a set of principles offering guidance to businesses on how to promote gender equality and women’s empowerment in the workplace, marketplace and community.
We work hard to create a safe space for women in technology and innovation. The Women in Tech Summit educates, empowers, inspires and connects women working in technical fields.
Our partnership with behavioral change specialists MindGym aims to provide a research-based perspective and tools that will enable us to better cultivate inclusion in our culture.
Workplace Pride works to create inclusive workplaces for the LGBTIQ+ community where people can truly be themselves, are valued and, through their contributions, help to lead the way for others.
Over the past 15 years over 86 nationalities have come through our Global Electrolux Talent program, bringing fresh insights and perspectives from around the world.
Our global workshops educate all layers of the organization about unconscious bias and how we can create an inclusive environment where everyone feels welcome. The work is an ongoing process and education continues throughout the year.
A diversity network consisting of five subcommittees—gender, generations, ethnicity, people with disabilities, and LGBT+ (lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and more) that is open to all employees throughout Latin America.
WE (Women at Electrolux) is an employee-led initiative with local chapters. Members come from all walks of life, (and genders!), to join the conversation, become part of the gender-equality solution, and promote real change.
The MOSAIC network aims to make diversity, inclusion and equity top of mind in North America. It aims to be representative of all ethnic groups by promoting diversity and inclusion, raising awareness and empowering employees.
We encourage our employees to take ownership of solutions, including local diversity committees where they can drive real change within their regions and local communities based on needs and priorities.
Voices from our people
"We want to become a leader in diversity as we recognize the unique value that every individual brings to our company. This journey will create a more dynamic work environment and make us stronger, more innovative and a better employer.”
Adam Cich Executive Vice President, Head of BA APAC & MEA
"Everyday at Electrolux is remarkable, as I feel that people increasingly trust my work. The company, my managers and my colleagues have never treated me as someone unable to perform the job because I am a woman. Instead, they have always given me a lot of encouragement.”
Danielle Leiva First female eletrician in Brazil
“Our Digital Product (IOT) organization in APAC MEA has a gender ratio of 50-50. We have 11 nationalities representing the majority of APAC MEA. I’m really proud of how everyone comes together to deliver the needs of our consumer. In my view, if you simply give equal opportunities, it is not hard to build a diverse, high-performing team.”
Gaurav Julka Sr. Manager, New business models & IOT
