What does gender diversity and inclusion look like at DuluxGroup?
DuluxGroup is a supporter and member of the National Association of Women in Operations (NAWO). In 2017, they partnered with NAWO to host the first NAWO Knowledge Network, an event that brings together like-minded organisations who are developing and implementing strategies to grow their female talent.
The first NAWO meeting focused on flexibility in the workplace, and the role of mainstreaming flexibility to support women in the middle stages of their careers. Organisations came together to share their approach to flexibility and discussed their successes and lessons learned.
In addition to the Knowledge Network, DuluxGroup supports NAWO’s Internship Program. DuluxGroup intern and participant of the the 2018 Graduate program, Carly, describes her experiences working in supply chain process improvement for Dulux Acratex
‘The most valuable thing I’ve learned from my experience is to be inquisitive about how a process affects everyone involved… and how best to use resources to drive improvement that provides clear value and plays to the strengths of the people who drive the processes every day’.
