Saint-Gobain North America held its first-ever D&I day in November 2017, modeled after the United Nation’s Day of Cultural Diversity for Dialogue and Development. The Day included D&I video screenings, the serving of international cuisine from employees’ country of origin, guest speakers and access to some of the best TED talks on D&I. The annual event was created to educate employees on the diversity within each and every Saint-Gobain office and start critical conversations and brainstorms on the topic so that efforts flourish.
