The furniture giant, Herman Miller, seems to know everything there is about business and good pieces of furniture, especially for the office. What the general public is still not aware of is the lack of diversity among their business partners.
Herman Miller’s diversity strategy is far from being spot on, as we’ve learned through time. Inclusion in the workplace is one thing, being an individual advocate for inclusion rights is another and there’s something completely different in doing business with all kinds of people, giving them the opportunity to go shoulder to shoulder with you.
Pride Month is upon us
Many people know that Pride Month, celebrated all through June, could be a marketing strategy for companies to reach more audiences and specially for companies like Herman Miller to include minorities and step up their diversity numbers with the people they do business with.
We’ve put together a petition to try and change that. Herman Miller is doing very little for business with a more diverse crowd of dealers. It can be nice if you helped us change it.
We think Pride Month is the perfect excuse to increase the visibility of our petition and make Herman Miller aware of diversity and inclusion not only in their workplace but all across their dealers network, include diversity suppliers in their chain of production and stop them from turning their eyes away from this issue.
Diversity Suppliers in the NMSDC and Herman Miller dealers
We all have a dream. Herman Miller owns a great deal to the community. A very thoughtful way to pay it forward is to include more diversity suppliers, Native American or LGBT, Asian American, Hispanic, African American, Women. We all deserve a chance to make the land of the free grow and us with it.
Support our petition. Help us make a difference. During Pride Month, make a company like Herman Miller consider more diversity among their suppliers and dealers.
