Morgan Advanced Materials

Diversity, equity and inclusion

At Morgan we are committed to creating a diverse and inclusive culture.

We are clear that it is our people who are the driving force behind our success. In return for their dedication, we aim to be open, engaging and make those crucial adjustments to open up our organisation to all.

Inclusion at Morgan

Marking and celebrating global awareness days which reflect our differences, as well as our similarities, gives our teams a great opportunity to learn more about each other, and fosters an inclusive work environment. We support a number of these awareness days throughout the year as a way to celebrate, educate and engage ourselves, and to highlight our desire to make a big positive difference.

Diversity at Morgan

It takes a large number of very talented people to keep Morgan running and we believe that our diversity is our strength. As a global business, we speak 20 different languages and use our differing experiences and knowledge gained from our own lives to help solve complex problems for our customers. Recognising that each of our people needs a different type of support to grow and thrive, is key to reaching our goal. We want to enable our employees to reach their full potential, so we work together to make this happen.

What we got up to in 2023

In 2023, we continued to build upon the successful launch of our three employee resource groups (ERGs) to serve as a visible sign of our commitment to a diverse and inclusive workplace:

  • We opened up several new chapters of our Women@Morgan ERG including in China. The global group brought us informative talks on topics such as menopause, while the UK chapter hosted a session on the UK gender pension gap.
  • Our Military@Morgan ERG distributed challenge coins to our colleagues in the US ahead of Veterans Day celebrations.

During 2023 we also appointed our first Diversity and Inclusion Director, and continued to support our managers to achieve more inclusive recruitment by expanding our ‘license to recruit’ training.

To support the next generation of female leaders, we also ran a pilot female mentoring programme in one of our global business units. After fantastic feedback we hope to widen the participation of this to more women across the whole Group.
