Our DEI Journey So Far
Building on the actions we've already taken to become more diverse, equitable and inclusive.
The Diversity in Design Collaborative (DID)
DID creates and fosters systemic change with programming aimed to increase opportunity along the educational and employment pipeline.
Our first Vice President of DEI
Cheryl Kern and her team will focus on identifying DEI priority areas, launching leader resources and reimagining our Global DEI Council.
The CEO Action Pledge
In 2020, MillerKnoll CEO Andi Owen joined a cross-industry coalition of leaders committed to advancing diversity and inclusion goals.
Supplier and dealer diversity
We're partnering with diverse suppliers and dealers to foster opportunities for under-represented businesses.
Awareness of racial equity
Several MillerKnoll associates have dedicated a year or more to work with other CEO Action members on racial equity through public policy.
Comprehensive bias training
We’re delivering an enterprise-wide educational course focused on mitigating bias that entails a practical approach to improving DEI.
Relaunched equity teams
We've re-envisioned our seven associate resource groups to evolve them as global Equity Teams working on breaking down inequitable systems.
Refined career-development programmes
We intentionally share internships with under-represented students, have added career development liaisons and offer education reimbursement.
Global Day of Purpose
All MillerKnoll facilities are closed on election day in the US, so everyone has a chance to vote and give back to their communities.
Non-profit partnerships and support
We continue to donate 1.5% of our pre-tax corporate profits to non-profit organisations through MillerKnoll Foundation.
Space for difficult conversations
We've started a recurring virtual series called the LENS to create space for conversation around issues of inequity and injustice.
