Building a More Diverse Company By Building Up Women
International Women’s Day celebrates the social, economic and cultural achievements of women, as well as raising awareness on gender equality. Mosaic is focused on creating opportunities aimed at helping women – both inside of Mosaic, and around the world.
Historically, the mining industry has been largely male-dominated. Today, women comprise just 14% of Mosaic’s global workforce. Although we are transparent with that number, it shows we have opportunity to improve. And we’ve committed to it. Research shows that diverse and inclusive teams are more productive, creative and innovative. Mosaic’s dedication to inclusion recognizes that a more representative workforce not only makes us stronger, but better equips us to fulfill our mission—to help the world grow the food it needs.
We know that to build a diverse, talented workforce, we need to start outside of our company. Mosaic is focused on creating development opportunities aimed at helping women in and around the agriculture sector expand their skills. In Canada, Mosaic provides support aimed at helping advance women in the ag business. The company has teamed up with Women in Mining to support the Mine Your Potential Mentorship Program and the International Mining & Minerals Initiative to support women and Indigenous students enrolled in STEM post-secondary programs.
Mosaic partners with organizations like the National Diversity Council to provide future female leaders with access to mentorship from established businesswomen in Tampa Bay; Women on Boards, a leading education and advocacy campaign accelerating the global movement toward gender balance on corporate boards of directors; the Women’s Conference of Florida, which offers professional women from across the state a platform to address the most important issues facing women and Florida Cattlewomen, which fosters the well-being of the beef industry through education and promotion.
