Diversity and inclusion

AkzoNobel employs about 35.000 talented people all over the world who are passionate about paints and coatings. Reaching our goals and ambitions, and delivering high performance can only be done when everybody can bring their best self to work. To achieve this, we focus on creating a diverse and inclusive working environment.

For AkzoNobel a diverse and inclusive workplace means creating an organization where people feel included, respected and engaged. We want to attract talent from across all demographics and make sure our workforce reflects the societies and markets in which we do business. We believe it is important that our management teams reflect the diversity of our overall workforce as well, because diverse and inclusive teams are better able to understand our customers and innovate to meet their current and future needs.

Our long-term Diversity and Inclusion Commitments focus on:

  • Fostering an inclusive culture
  • Building and facilitating internal diversity and inclusion networks
  • Strengthening our leadership diversity
