Inclusion & Diversity
Diverse minds. Brilliant ideas.
When people of every culture, background and lifestyle are valued and accepted, we build an environment that unleashes innovation and creates brighter lives for all. At DSM, we create value for our employees, customers, shareholders and the society by embracing different perspectives which empowers us to deliver more innovative solutions. Inclusion & Diversity is a journey we are on together, that requires us to continuously learn and to stand up for those who experience inequity and exclusion. Our mission is to overcome challenges and to create opportunities to ensure we are a workplace that’s inclusive for all.
