Many of the greatest ideas and discoveries come from a diverse mix of minds, backgrounds, and experiences, and we at RPM are committed to cultivating a diverse and inclusive work environment. Diversity and Inclusion are the bedrock principles guiding how we build our teams, cultivate leaders, and service our customers. It’s an integral part of our DNA, and we work together to build an inclusive culture that encourages, supports, and celebrates the diverse voices of our employees. RPM’s initiatives around Diversity & Inclusion fuel our innovation and connects us closer to our customers and the communities we serve. As such, we are proud to announce the formation of the RPM Diversity & Inclusion Council, which will develop and execute on goals, priorities, and programs that continue to ensure RPM is defined by our commitment to Diversity & Inclusion. Please stay tuned for more information on the exciting initiatives we have developed and how we will measure our success!
“At RPM, we acknowledge the historical role the housing industry has played in perpetuating systemic racism. Today, we are reminded how far we have to go and our responsibility to advance racial equity and inclusion. We commit to our employees, residents, and the communities in which we serve to deepen our work in furthering change in the apartment industry and becoming a louder partner for affecting change beyond. To that end, we are solidifying the principle of equity and inclusion into our core company values in order to ensure lasting progress towards these efforts.
We can, and must, do better.”
