Mosaic’s Employee Inclusions Networks (EINs) hosted a slate of engaging and inclusive virtual and in-person events around the world to introduce their global workforce to six new Employee Inclusion Networks this week.
“Employee Inclusion Networks are voluntary, employee-led and leader sponsored groups, that through advocacy and allyship help foster a diverse and inclusive workplace where all employees can thrive”, says Mosaic’s Lisa Poissant, Vice President of Human Resources, North America & Global Talent Acquisition and EIN Lead. “Mosaic has established six EINs – Pride, Generations, Women, Veterans, Race & Heritage, and Diverse Abilities.”
Launch Week featured events and activities presented by each Employee Inclusion Network, including back-to-back live broadcasts from Florida and Sao Paolo. The first brought Dr. Moogega Cooper and Mosaic’s CEO and President, Joc O’Rourke together for a Keynote presentation and fireside chat. Dr. Cooper shared her perspective on the power of diversity in teams, being an ally and inclusive leadership. In Brazil, leaders came together to share the importance of diversity and inclusion at Mosaic and their own career journeys.
The Pride Network hosted two sessions with guest speakers, Rene Cantu from Equity Florida and JP Polo, DE&I Consultant and Professor based in Brazil, who presented on LGBTQIA+ literacy. The Race & Heritage and Generations Networks hosted in-person discussions with their colleagues using thought-provoking videos. The Women’s Network brought together two panels of leaders from across Mosaic to share their personal stories that have defined their careers.
Catarina Rivera headlined the Diverse Abilities event, highlighting accessibility and inclusion in the workplace. Employees also shared their experiences with diverse abilities inside and outside the workplace. The Veteran’s Network closed out the week with a panel discussion that included voices of veterans, military spouses, and families of the fallen.
“Thank you to our Network Leads and to all those employees who organized and hosted events across the company – their efforts play an important role in making progress towards our 2030 Diversity and Inclusion Commitments,” says Poissant. “Together, we are taking steps to build a diverse and inclusive workforce that makes Mosaic stronger and better enables us to fulfill our mission: to help the world grow the food it needs,” she adds.
