Advancing Diversity, Equity & Inclusion

Our vision for a sustainable workforce

Our people are at the center of everything we do. At O-I, we are better when we reflect the diverse world we serve, feel welcome and have equal access to opportunities. We are focused on increasing all aspects of diversity, equity and inclusion across our team. We’re following our DE&I roadmap to maintain progress. Our goal is to continue to create awareness and a shared accountability for creating a diverse and inclusive workplace. Our leaders are actively involved and our grassroots efforts continue to build momentum.

Employee Resource Groups

We encourage our employees to create and govern employee resource groups (ERGs), grassroots-style groups that promote discussion and allyship around shared characteristics, life experiences, and common interests. ERGs provide a unique environment for thought leadership, professional development, learning, networking, volunteerism, supporting recruiting and employee retention. We currently have seven ERGs operating across our global footprint. They’re dedicated to creating a culture of understanding for the LGBTQ+ community and people with disabilities, multigenerational cooperation, and gender and racial equity.
