Avery Dennison

| By TMA World

Avery Dennison was looking for a way to celebrate International Women’s Day and further its diversity and inclusion efforts. The company approached us with an exciting proposal to create a unique online learning experience for employees. 

With diversity a core part of its company values, Avery Dennison offers flexible work arrangements, manager training on unconscious bias, and a Women Empowered development program. These initiatives are helping to create a more inclusive workplace, and broaden the scope of focus beyond gender diversity.

In honor of International Women’s Day, Avery Dennison wanted to introduce an online learning program that would appeal to both men and women. The company’s newly refreshed set of values provided a nice foundation for the effort, including: 

  • Teamwork – We are better when we work together and put others ahead of ourselves.
  • Courage – We are brave in the face of adversity and the unknown.
  • Diversity – We gain strength from diverse ideas and teams.

These themes have been channeled into a unique learning program, called “Conscious Collaboration Across Borders”. TMA World will host a series of webinars for Avery Dennison, focused on the following:

  • Emphasizing how conscious collaboration increases our ability to engage with others respectfully and with care
  • Increasing our awareness of the mindsets and behaviors that drive conscious collaboration
  • Leveraging value from team diversity and create actions for inclusive behaviors
  • Providing a practical, simple technique for consciously collaborating

Employee insights gathered during the sessions will be used to inform the approach for their Women Empowered program, which will take place later in the year.
