US-based Albemarle CEO Kent Masters has signed the CEO action for diversity and inclusion pledge, committing him to promote collective action to drive inclusive behaviour strategically and deliberately.
"We are committed to a culture where our values are clear, all are welcome to collaborate and contribute, and our differences are celebrated as a competitive advantage," said Masters on Monday.
"We know that great change comes with great dedication. Through this pledge and our collective commitment to our values and our action plan, we will use the power of diversity and inclusion to strengthen Albemarle and our communities."
Launched in 2017, the CEO action for diversity and inclusion is the largest CEO-driven business commitment to advance diversity and inclusion in the workplace. It has representation from more than 1 600 signatories across 85 industries.
