Our goals for 2025

Our goals are set to give equal opportunities to all Etex teammates and to remove systemic barriers to inclusion. At the same time, we will continue to assess our gender equality performance on a regular basis to assure progress towards a more equal gender representation throughout the different levels in the organisation and to identify potential barriers and opportunities to accelerate the pace of change.

Teammate Stories

We have collected inspiring stories from Etex teammates worldwide and are sharing them here with all. We are helping create a sense of pride across team and borders, enabling our team to inspire each of and the world.

In our latest Employee Engagement Survey, 76% of female and 77% of male teammates agreed that management supports diversity, equity & inclusion at Etex. This is a good result, but there is room for improvement.

 

Therefore we invited some teammates to share their thoughts and personal experiences about diversity, equity & inclusion. Their stories will help raise awareness about its importance and make Etex the best workplace for all.
