On being named to the Women Executives list, Palmieri said, “I’m honored to receive this recognition as a HERoes top woman executive. I have the privilege to be a leader for a company where advancing inclusion, diversity and equity is a priority, but that is not the case in every workplace or organization. We must continue to advocate for representation of women at all levels of leadership to create more equitable systems and cultures that include all.”

Dow’s comprehensive global inclusion, diversity and equity strategy is integrated into the Company’s overall business strategy. Across the Company, employees are helping to champion a culture of inclusion by acting as catalysts for advancing business success, enhancing employee engagement and activating communities for impact. A focus of this strategy is improving the representation of underrepresented populations, including women globally and ethnic minorities in the U.S. at Dow.

“Allyship is both an intentional action and a critical need,” said Ungerleider. “We need more men advocating for women both inside and outside of the workplace. I am honored to receive this recognition alongside incredibly talented colleagues.”
