Diversity and Inclusion
Continue to build a diverse and inclusive environment where people feel welcomed to create a better future for themselves, each other, and O-I. We are focused on increasing all aspects of diversity and inclusion across our team.
Our Diversity & Inclusion Vision
Recognizing that O-I is better when our workforce reflects the communities around us, one of our core values is diversity. Our expanded strategic initiatives include an elevated focus on ensuring we continue to create both a diverse and inclusive workplace environment. Our Diversity and Inclusion Strategy outlines our vision for the future and sets objectives to guide our progress, engaging employees in creating that future by driving momentum on a global and local level.
We define diversity as what we have: the collective mixture of differences and similarities includes individual and organizational characteristics, values, beliefs, experiences, backgrounds, preferences, and behaviors. These are both visible and invisible. We see inclusion as what we do: intentionally continuing to build a work environment in which all individuals are treated fairly and respectfully, have equal access to opportunities and resources, and can contribute fully to the organization’s success.
