MSA’s Commitment to Diversity, Equity and Inclusion
As a 100% employee-owned company, MSA is inherently motivated to work together for the greater good. And we know that the greater good is at its best when comprised of a collection of diverse individual voices, opinions, perspectives, backgrounds and beliefs. Greater diversity in any organization, society or population brings greater strength, adaptability and innovation. Diversity itself is an outcome of having an inclusive and equitable environment.
That’s why MSA is committed to an honest pursuit of diversity, equity and inclusion (DEI) at the workplace — and beyond the workplace walls. This means making deliberate, quantifiable steps forward and assessing progress to assure our company is contributing to a world that is increasingly open, welcoming and just.
MSA DEI Council
MSA is proud to have a dedicated DEI Council comprised of employee advocates that serve to expand conversations and actions around inclusive company culture. The DEI Council’s primary goal is building a solid foundation of awareness, understanding, education, empowerment and accountability from which to grow and evolve. This group meets regularly and brings forward experiences, educational trainings and outreach opportunities to all MSA team members.
MSA’s Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Goals
MSA’s commitment to DEI begins by identifying goals, defining how we will gauge progress and acknowledging that goals will change and evolve over time. Current DEI goals include:
- Ensuring that MSA has an inclusive culture that is equitable in providing opportunities.
- Promoting and facilitating safe discussions on the topics of diversity, equity and inclusion where any employee can share their views and engage in meaningful dialogue with co-workers.
- Focusing outreach efforts on organizations that represent underserved populations, particularly underrepresented STEM students.
