CEO Action for Diversity and Inclusion Business Commitment
Our President & CEO, Bill Siwek, signed the CEO Pledge for Action in 2021. TPI is now part of a global community and has access to best practices from companies around the world to support our journey to create an inclusive environment where all associates have a sense of belonging. The pledge has four main goals:
- To continue to make our workplaces trusting places to have complex, and sometimes difficult, conversations about diversity and inclusion.
- To implement and expand unconscious bias education.
- To share best – and unsuccessful – practices.
- To create and share strategic inclusion and diversity plans with our Board.
TPI shared our own best practices with this community, conducting disparate impact analysis on equitable pay and assessing cultural awareness of DE&I, provided Creating an Inclusive Culture training to leaders at all levels globally, conducted a DE&I Survey, discussed our DE&I strategy and results with the Board, and host our annual Global Day of Understanding.
Global Day of Understanding
One of the three major components of the CEO Pledge is to create and maintain opportunities for associates to share their perspectives openly and comfortably with senior leadership. Dialogue is essential to gaining greater awareness, removing barriers, resolving misunderstandings, and minimizing unconscious biases.
Our President &CEO and Chief People Officer host a Global Day of Understanding (DoU) with our associates each year.The objective is to create a candid dialogue about their experiences at TPI and how they can be improved. These courageous conversations are designed to share stories, capture positive ideas and understand opportunities for TPI going forward that can be introduced to make our culture stronger and more inclusive.
LEAP for Women
We launched our first Global Associate Resource group (ARG) – LEAP for Women. LEAP stands for lead, empower, advance, and promote. Globally all our operations established LEAP for Women chapters co-chaired by representatives from the business and human resource teams.
