Every September, Ball Corporation celebrates Who We Are Month, taking pride in our people, culture and who we are as a company. Ball has taken great strides toward creating a more diverse and inclusive workplace — by growing its Ball Resource Groups, investing in recruiting efforts, obtaining a consecutive perfect score on the Corporate Equality Index and more. And yet, there is still work to be done. In this month’s vlog, Manette Snow talks with Charles Johnson, director, diversity and inclusion, about what challenges we have as we create an environment where everyone at Ball is all in.

An environment that unlocks the unique qualities, values and potential of each employee, and leverages diverse perspectives, experiences, competencies, cultures and aspirations. That’s what we’re striving to provide at Ball, so each and every one of us can thrive and do our best work. In this month’s vlog Manette Snow talks to Cindy Deal, vice president, human resources, Food & Aerosol packaging, and co-lead of the LGBTA Ball Resource group, about Ball's perfect score on the Corporate Equality Index that we earned for a second year by making improvements to our policies and procedures to make them more inclusive, some of our customers’ pride initiatives, and Cindy’s perspectives on why she is “All IN.”

At Ball, we strive to create an inclusive work environment. Every day, you affect the people around you with your words.  Find out how you can use language that brings out the best in people, write emails that build relationships, and make people feel like they matter.  Learn how to speak up effectively by saying “OUCH” when someone uses inappropriate language and to let others know that there are better word choices.  Be part of the conversation and learn how to speak more inclusively.
