Bayer is proud to support Influential Women in Canadian Agriculture
In everything we do, Bayer advances a culture of inclusion, diversity and gender equality. We embrace and encourage unique identities of the women and men who work here and believe that our human capital is our most valuable asset. Together, all our individual differences, life experiences, knowledge, innovation, self-expression, unique capabilities and talent is key to our culture, reputation, and success.
Inclusion & Diversity plays an important role in meeting and anticipating the needs of our customers and achieving our overall vision: Health for all, Hunger for none. To sustain and grow our business across Canada and around the world, we increasingly require perspectives and participation of women. Doing so will help achieve balance and allow us to incorporate new ways of thinking and innovating.
Our Inclusion and Diversity Council is dedicated to shaping and influencing employee culture and engagement at Bayer Canada, so that all colleagues feel supported, listened to and empowered to do their personal best. The council is made up of diverse and dynamic team of women and men from all walks of life and all business units from across Canada.
The Council’s role is to bring together topics on Inclusion & Diversity across the organization. This includes providing an employee perspective to advise HR and the Canadian Leadership Team, acting as change agents, and, connecting employee business resource groups such as WiSE and BLEND. WiSE is the Women in Science Exchange, while BLEND is Bayer’s Business Resource Group for lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT+) individuals and their allies.
WISE’s mission is to increase awareness and encourage action regarding issues of gender equality in the workplace, and to create a network of support between different functions within Bayer Canada committed to generating positive visibility and change for women. WiSE Guys is a group comprised of male colleagues who support the empowerment of women within Bayer and the agricultural community at large.
For over 150 years Canadian women have been a big part of Canadian agriculture with their hard work and innovative thinking. That’s why Bayer Crop Science is proud to support Influential Women in Canadian Agriculture. Recognizing and promoting women across every facet of Canadian agriculture is something we firmly believe in.
