September 8, 2022

In support of the company’s mission to build a culture that recognizes and celebrates the value of diverse backgrounds, equity in opportunity and inclusivity in action, Southwire has announced the Phase Two launch of its diversity, equity and inclusion (DEI) website.

Earlier this year, Southwire launched its DEI website. The site included Southwire’s DEI mission statement, key successes and data for 2021, and listed its current strategic areas of focus. DEI has been a priority of Southwire’s for many years, and the website was created in effort to drive accountability and transparency in this space. The site included key successes and data for 2021, external partnerships and listed areas of focus.

The second phase of the website provides in-depth information about Southwire’s DEI strategy, including full webpages dedicated to each of its seven areas of focus: Employee Resource Groups (ERGs)Inclusive RecruitingTalent DevelopmentSuppliersGiving BackAdvocacy, and External Partnerships. This allows users to learn more about the company’s mission and increases transparency.

Southwire treasures the diversity of its employees and the communities that it represents and serves, and the company’s four key values – trust, empowerment, consistency and inclusion – are the foundation of the organization’s DEI strategy. This updated site gives a more detailed look at what the company stands for.

“I’m proud that Southwire has a long-standing commitment to diversity, equity and inclusion, and we are excited to see growth in this space and continue to establish ourselves as a brand committed to those efforts,” said Brandon Moss, president of the company’s Tools, Components and Assembled Solutions (TCAS) business. “It’s fantastic that we can now share more information and continue to partner with our customers and stakeholders to drive meaningful improvements in the communities in which we operate through our DEI website.”
