Oshkosh joins CEO Action for Racial Equity fellowship

11/12/2020

 

Two years ago, our CEO Wilson Jones signed the CEO Action for Diversity & Inclusion to continue our commitment to strengthening a culture of diversity and inclusion at Oshkosh. The CEO Action recently launched a new fellowship, the CEO Action for Racial Equity fellowship, which will work towards advancing societal racial equity through public policy. The fellowship mobilizes the larger business community in industries across the nation to enact change. This is the biggest coalition of its kind addressing racial equity through a public policy lens. 

We are proud to support the action and our team member, Tapiwa Mutumhe, who will be the Oshkosh lead through this fellowship. “One of our strengths at Oshkosh is realizing there is a need for change and taking steps to act upon it," said Tapiwa. “The most important thing for me is to listen to all team members including those who haven’t always had a voice. I know my success in this fellowship will be based on the commitment and cooperation from all of our global team members.”

The fellowship will focus on four key pillars of societal wellbeing – education, public safety, economic empowerment and healthcare. In his role, Tapiwa will be focused on change and public policy within the pillar of education.

We are committed to building a culture of diversity and inclusion and excited for the positive change this fellowship will bring to Oshkosh.
