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

Our goals for 2025

  • Cover all teammates by Diversity, Equity and Inclusion policies, procedures and practices.
  • Train all teammates on Diversity, Equity and Inclusion.

Teammate Stories: creating pride and awareness.

We have collected inspiring stories from Etex teammates worldwide, which we share with each other across countries.. Our Teammate Stories boost pride among our team and motivate Etex teammates to inspire each other and the world.

In our latest Employee Engagement Survey, 76% of female and 77% of male teammates agreed that management supports diversity, equity and 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 and inclusion. Their stories will help raise awareness about its importance and make Etex the best workplace for all.
